    I'd love to have the recipe for Piatti's olive oil with seasonings that they bring to
    the table. It's the best. I've tried to do a improv, but it's never good.

    My favorite entree is the raviole in lemon sauce. A waiter talked me into trying it the first
    time and I fell in love with it.
