Husband-and-wife duo Luis Mancera and Monica Fallone have transformed their Borgo Food Station into a thirteen-seat restaurant with banquettes, a pint-size bar, and sidewalk tables. Our first visit had its ups and downs. House-made pasta is the star, with several choices available; our ravioli came with a tangy pomodoro and a smooth, flavorful stuffing of ricotta and spinach. Not as successful was the overly dense and oddly sweet polenta topped with oversalted shrimp. If you just want to pop in for a nosh and a glass of Italian wine, the antipasti options are many. Our beef carpaccio arrived with a delicious mustard sauce and wide ribbons of shaved Parmesan, but the meat was chewy. Service was sweet if a bit slow; it feels like the kitchen is producing dishes one order at a time.
