Wagyu sliders may not be Italian, but they're juicy and rich, served with caramelized onions and black truffle aioli ($12).

Catch of the day is served fra diovolo style, with a spicy tomato sauce, fresh mussels, clams, and calamari. Today's catch was mahi, but, as the menu says, "We're always looking for square grouper." Only note to this dish: I would have loved some pasta or warm fresh bread to sop up the tangy sauce.

Chicken scarpariello "Vinny D style" is a bone-in chicken served with sausage, mushrooms, and cherry peppers ($23).

alba pasta.jpg
Buccatini carbonara may be "last meal" worthy. Home made buccatini is topped with pancetta, caramelized onions, and a runny poached egg. Break yolk into steaming pasta and go to a happy place ($21).

alba mushrooms.jpg
Sauteed mushrooms for the table are served in the pot ($6). Other sharable sides include truffle fries, zucchini frito, polenta gorgonzola, and eggplant parmigiano.
