Agrodolce mills their own flours and shoves random ingredients in their pasta dough, so you’ll notice anything from emmer wheat rigatoni and arugula cavatelli to black pepper spaghetti. You’ll probably end up sitting on a bench crowded with decorative pillows, or at a table underneath the tree casually planted in the center of the restaurant, which is to say that it’s an ideal spot for an early-in-the-game date.
