The waving Italian flag high above this strip mall marks your final stop on this neighborhood tour. La Pergoletta seems like a photo from your friends Pinterest board titled “Italia Dreaming”. A dimly lit enclave full of tables topped with red and white-checkered tablecloths topped with meltie candles and plates of pasta. Take your seat and find the chalk board titled “pasta fresca”, this is where you’ll want to begin. Slowly dine on a Caprese salad, slurp up freshly made spaghetti and sip wine from the list that Lou helped curate. The friendly staff will happily guide you through this culinary journey but only you can push yourself through to dessert. Finish your last morsel and bid farewell to an Italian neighborhood you never knew existed...and in the end, never really did.
Bonus: Want to continue the party? Head across the street to Ye Rustic Inn for a quintessential dive bar evening.
