Fodor's Expert Review A16

$$$ Marina Italian

Named after a highway that runs through southern Italy, this trattoria specializes in the food from that region, done very, very well. The menu is stocked with pizza and rustic pastas like maccaronara with ragù Napoletano (a meat sauce) and house-made salted ricotta, as well as entrées like roasted chicken with caper salsa verde. The selection of primarily southern Italian wines, augmented by some California vintages, supports the food perfectly.
