Paola's staked its reputation on handmade pasta and then took off. The choices range from familiar to inventive. Recent examples included beet-flavored gnocchi dressed with gorgonzola and puffy ravioli filled with super-fresh ricotta. Antipasti include artichokes alla Giudea (fried babies), shrimp with white beans, and escarole wilted under a dressing of balsamic, onions, and bacon. Black cod has crisp skin, silky flesh, and cuddles up to meaty borlotti beans. Duck breast is served rare over a kind of wheat pilaf studded with vegetables and lemony sauce.
