With all the hustle and bustle in Trolley Square, it’s easy to miss or pass by Cantina Di Napoli. But when a craving for a homemade Italian meal strikes, don’t pass up the homemade polenta topped with mushrooms or the arugula salad (big enough for two), and be sure to ask for extra bread to sop up any remaining sauce. (The vodka sauce is a must.)
