The Italian restaurants twist on potato chips and P.B. & J. may seem out of place, but skip the scoffing and order. Next, try one of their fresh pastas, and be sure to save room for secondi!

do you like early 90s hip hop and expensive italian? me too. great date spot but they only take reservs for parties of 4 so be prepared to wait. octopus antipasti is excellent as is the pork.

Perla is the year-old Italian restaurant from young gun chef Michael Toscano and restaurateur Gabe Stulman. Toscano has a knack for cooking pasta dishes and monster pieces of meat.

This pasta lover's dream won the 2013 Best New Italian Spot award. From an open kitchen, Chef Toscano dispatches blackened tentacles of meaty octopus and gorgeous pastas woven around cockscombs.

The pancetta-wrapped rabbit will feel right at home being shoved down your hole.

Great spot for a special occasion. They even brought out prosecco when they heard it was our anniversary! Try the octopus, gnocchi, and agnolotti!

Amazing Italian as everyone has said - but my highlight here was the Tombstone Sunday Nights cocktail. Spiced bourbon + pepperoni bitters ftw

Try their take on a PB & J sandwich: foie gras, cherry jam, & pistachio. So decadent and pairs well with rose moscato

Pappardelle ragu w/ shaved foie gras was insane. Other tips say skip the mains and focus on the pasta and I'd have to agree. 2-3 antipasti, 1-2 pasta (they'll split!), a seat at the bar & you're set!

Amazing desserts! Apple tart and salted caramel praline are a must!

Love this place! From the octopus to the pastas. A magical gem.

The newest restaurant from Gabe Stulman is now open. Manzo and Babbo veteran Michael Toscano is behind the market-driven Italian food.

#FabuLIST #DubiDO the pastas are a must get at this place. Try the Orecchiette italian sausage broccoli rabe and gnocchi with tomato sauce. #DubiDONT polenta was too salty and pretty bland

The pappardelle with veal stew & thinly shaved foie gras is the perfect (slightly pretentious) pasta. The foie gras subtly makes the whole dish taste the right kind of buttery.

Focus on the pasta. The meat dishes were solid but not signature.

Anything with cheeks. Get the crispy pig ears just for the pork cheek croquette. Same with the 24 hour steak.
