'Little Italy' on Serious Eats

Red Sauce with Prosciutto Necks at Di Palo's

Homemade red sauce with pasta is nothing new at Di Palo's in Little Italy, but on a recent visit, the team explained that they're increasing the regularity of some of their offerings.

Especially true serious eaters like Susan. More
