Though named after a hedonistic festival, this is a quaint, family-owned restaurant that has been serving up what it calls “recipes from the Old Country” in the Heart of Little Italy for over 25 years. Nouveau Italian cuisine takes a backseat to over 20 pasta dishes and a long list of classics like chicken parmesan and veal scaloppine. Bacchanalia is not nearly as sinful or risky as its name implies, but is certainly satisfying.
