From the outside, Lighthouse Kitchen is modest and unpretentious. If you’re on the phone, you might miss it, but you really shouldn’t! A modern decor of simple white lines and wooden tables is a perfect setting for the kitchen’s colorful dishes. There are several cozy tables close to the open kitchen, and there’s outdoor sitting, too, for when the weather is right.

The menu is simple but on point. Classic Italian starters like antipasto and bruschetta are a great way to start the night. Still, it’s the pasta that steals the show: Lasagna, freshly made orecchiette and hand-rolled trofie pasta are served with rich, unctuous sauces. Save room for the main course because both, chicken and veal cottoleta, are as good they get.

Service is top-notch. It was never rushed, and very engaging. The restaurant is run by a charming Italian couple that treats you like an old friend.
