Nuova Italia's chefs take influences and recipes from the northern and southern regions of Italy to fill plates with wood-fire pizzas and helpings of handmade pasta. After looking through the menu, dig into the insalata capricciosa, which intermixes greens, black olives, artichokes, and gorgonzola cheese ($7.95). The gnocchi della casa ($13.95) unites potato-dumpling soldiers in matching uniforms of house-made marinara before infiltrating tummies to beat back hunger insurgencies. Buffalo mozzarella, arugula, prosciutto, and shaved parmesan perch on the pizza Nuova Italia ($15) as it emerges from Nuova's wood-burning oven. For dessert, plunge sweet teeth into a piece of chocolate flourless cake ($5.95) or lap up mouthfuls of gelato, in vanilla, chocolate, hazelnut or limone flavorings ($4.95+). On some nights, live music floats through the air, scoring meals like a sousaphone scores a clown walking down the street.
