Shimmering gold curtains line Passione's elegant dining room, where glasses of wine and specialty martinis clink over fine Italian dishes. Waiters transport gourmet pizzas to coves of cushy booths, where white-clothed tables hold pastas scattered with homemade mozzarella, fresh italian sausage, or seared chicken.
