Casa D'Angelo Launches New Menu: More Seafood and Handmade Pastas (Photos)
A larger selection of handmade pastas ($18-$24) have been featured, with some healthier options included. On the lighter side, a farro penne (made out of wholesome spelt wheat) with broccoli, chicken sausage, and cannellini beans is now offered. For those looking to try some spring lamb, a pappardelle with lamb ragout is now featured daily; it's composed Chianti braised leg of lamb, Sicilian aged ricotta, and Tuscan herbs.

The real draw for the season is the selection of seafood ($30-$36). According to executive chef Rickie Piper, it's only going to grow as the weather heats up.
Halibut, a seafood of the day selection
"The more and more into summer we get, we going to start running lighter," says Piper. "We'll be turning to more seafood like short shell crab and clams and things like that."
In addition to a fish of the day -- it was halibut with a nice light tomato sauce on our visit -- the menu features constants like oven-roasted branzino with asparagus, Roma tomato, fresh oregano and lemon garlic. Sautéed jumbo tiger shrimp with Gaeta olives, spicy tomato sauce and broccoli rapini is another fixed selection.
