The name of this Southern Italian gem means "delicious," and its authentic fare delivers on the moniker. All credit goes to the owner, a native of Calabria who works hard to ensure that the welcome here is as warm and the house-made pastas as delectable as those of the Old Country. Settle in under the twinkling chandeliers in the intimate space-nestled in the heart of San Carlos, just steps from the Caltrain station-then summon a plate of perfectly cooked pappardelle in a tomato-kissed wild boar ragù. Move on to an indulgently cheesy gratin of baked cauliflower (under its crisp breadcrumb topping lies a touch of cream sauce), before finishing with bittersweet cappuccino mousse, served over coffee sponge cake and crowned by a chocolate-coated coffee bean.
