Perfect day for enjoying a leisurely lunch in the back garden of Frankies Spuntino.

The octupus salad with olives, capers had a citrusy tang to it.  Very Mediterranean.

Love the meatballs here! Super flavorful, not too densely packed, and covered in simple, fresh tomato sauce.

The restaurant makes all its pasta in-house.  We had a hard time deciding which pasta to get. They all sounded yummy. We ended up with the Cavatelli with hot sausage & browned sage butter because it was the restaurant's most popular pasta dish. The hot sausage definitely gave the al dente pasta a nice kick. Maybe because we also ordered the Meatballs, the hot sausage pasta just felt a bit much. We should have ordered the Sweet Potato & Sage Ravioli instead. Next time!
