Mama Mia! Tasty Italian Food

Last night, we went to dinner at Raia's Italian Market on Washington. It's been open for only one month but runs like it was born there decades ago. The Italian kitchen setting threw Little K for a loop.
"Whose house is this?" she kept asking.
She enjoyed her spaghetti while Trent chowed on the New Orleans pasta filled with seafood. I tried the red bell peppers stuffed with crab, shrimp and cheese. Ahh. It was heavenly. So heavenly, in fact, that I had no room for dessert. Little K tried chocolate gelato, which she devoured as evidenced in the photo here. Trent licked his lips at the cheese cake. In five minutes flat, the desserts were gone.
I was hoping that this family was related to my old softball buddy Angela Raia from Memorial Ashford Little League many moons ago. But no such luck. Darn.
I highly recommend Raia's for its family-friendly atmosphere and delicious Italian cuisine.
