The menus entice patrons with meals of housemade ravioli, stuffed with Maine lobster meat and topped with creamy plum-tomato sauce ($22.95), as well as lightly fried calamari with a side of linguine ($17.95).
Chefs at Piccola Venezia use juicy Italian-style sausages, creamy risotto, and plenty of garlic and basil to create authentic Italian dishes that Zagat rated "very good to excellent." The dinner menu presents rustic favorites alongside gourmet cuisine, such as handmade curls of orecchiette pasta tossed with sausage and wilted broccoli raab or shrimp scampi with artichoke hearts and black olives. More than 50 varieties of wine, from red to white to bubbly, bring out dishes' subtler flavors without threats of torture with red-pepper flakes.
