It is not surprising that an Italian chef who loves to cook would name his restaurant La Vita Gustosa, since, in Italian, it means "the tasty life." Stay in the bar area near the fireplace or go into one of the more elegant dining rooms for a change of ambiance, but no matter where you sit, you will be able to find what you hunger for in the extensive menu. Start with clams casino for your appetizer and linguine e vongole for your entree. Or, if you looking for lighter fare, have one of the home-style soups, bisques or chowders and a salad. The bistecca della casa and pork chop Milanese are great choices as well.
