Good Company and Good Pasta Were Just What the Doctor Ordered

by Lisa Kampeter

When I think of restaurants on the Hill, I think of family. Large gatherings. Hanging out. Taking your time enjoying your food. And constant talking . . . loudly. It’s quite the process. But it’s the Hill, and it’s Italian, after all.
