Bugatti is mostly about pastas, which include obligatory favorites, from carbonara to clam sauce, finessed with a crowd-pleasing panache. The plates are artlessly artful — meaning aesthetic beauty is to be found in the quality of ingredients, preparation, and taste. Not that the comestibles aren't comely: Tagliolini carbonara — thin, fresh strings of homemade egg noodles festively colored with an outer ring of punchy pimiento sauce and a bull's-eye of reduced cream — is pretty as a picture. Bugatti's lasagna, served only the first Wednesday of every month, is the best in Florida; it boasts a delicate layering of fresh, chewy noodles with sumptuously mild minced beef and veal, along with a smooth white Mornay sauce.
