With fried calamari, of course (appetizer, $9.75), but also with calamari meatballs ($6). They're finely minced yet still firm, like better Asian fishballs, in an excellent Italian-American red sauce. The black pasta (appetizer, $10.50) — tinted with squid ink and dressed with ground squid sauteed in garlic and olive oil — is superb.
