I’ll never forget the first time I ate at Locanda Verde. My friend was in from out of town and I made the reservation weeks in advance in anticipation. It was love at first bite. The ricotta, the crostini, the pappardelle, the martinis!! — all perfection. Since their brunch is talked about just as much as their dinner, I was beyond excited to finally go last weekend. It didn’t disappoint. Whatever you do, get the pumpkin donut.
