Lamarca is our neighborhood Italian joint.  The small no frills space has inviting tables and a nice front opening for enjoying the warm spring breeze.  Each entrée comes with a salad to start.

This might not seem like much but there are hardly any Italian joints in the city that give you free salad.

They also send out a nice and warm crusty roll.  The other night we were there Mr. T went for an old should plate of Manicotti.

I wasn’t feeling as hungry so I just stuck with the Eggplant Rollatini appetizer.

The wines by the glass were extremely reasonable and service is always quick and efficient.  It’s a great little joint to have in the hood.
