Angel Hair Pomodoro Basilico at Roma Grill

Angel hair pomodoro is the truth serum of Italian food: If the pasta itself isn’t great, there’s no way for the dish to fib its way into your heart. At Roma Grill, the pasta is great. The whole-wheat angel hair is slightly al dente, hearty but not heavy; the sauce complements the pasta rather than masking it. A simple pleasure in a supper-club atmosphere. This must be what the good old days were like. $10.50, in Sansone Park Place, 9570 S. Eastern Ave., 837-5600.
