Opened in 1993, Cafe Prima Pasta is still almost always busy, and the welcome is still as personal as it was when the place was an eighth of its present size. The pastas, breads, and desserts are still housemade. Stand-out pasta dishes include black linguine and scampi cosanostra. But since pastas are unfailingly cooked to perfect al dente chewiness and basic ingredients like olive oil are of top quality, even the more simple fettuccine carbonara or spaghetti aglio e olio (with garlic, olive oil, and basil) are satisfying.
