Filomena's Italian Kitchen

What do you get if you cross the fast-casual concept with your Italian grandmother's kitchen? The answer might be Filomena's Italian Kitchen. Owner Filomena Angelucci-Dean grew up in Castel Frentano, Italy, but her menu is rooted in the broad, popular tradition of Italian food in America. The lasagna, one of four entrées offered, is excellent, as are the chicken marsala and chicken Parmigiano. Simple pasta dishes, salads and sandwiches are also available. The highlight is the arancini, flash-fried balls of risotto with a molten cheese core.
