At Pio's Pasta Co., head chef and owner Peter Corsa handcrafts each authentic Italian dish from scratch, specializing in delectable al dente pastas. The lobster ravioli crams notes of lobster, spinach, and pine nuts into doughy envelopes that are perfect for direct delivery to the mouth or—with a gentle flick of the spoon—airmail to a dinner partner. Lasagna layers vegetables and meat between cloaks of mozzarella and ricotta, and tables groan under gnocchi potato dumplings prepared one of three ways. A resident pairing expert selects the dinner's accompanying bottle of wine based on the types of dishes ordered and the customers' preferred shirt-stain hue.
