No matter what time you find yourself walking along 2nd Street, North Italia is packed—and with good reason. Their fresh pasta is off the charts (and nicely sized too, if you’re hungry). First-timers should opt for the house specialty Bolognese—handmade tagliatelle noodles, traditional meat sauce, and Grana Padano cheese. Or gear up for the Chicken Pesto, a mound of gigli pasta with added crunch from toasted pine nuts and capers. Toss in some roasted veggies drizzled in olive oil for a healthy nibble, and in turn, reward yourself with a thirst-quenching pitcher of Red Sangria or anything off the fabulous wine list.
