“The Little Owl” is unique on the Cape for serving food the way they do in Italy, not an Americanized version of it—you could almost imagine you have wandered into this place from a side street in Rome. The dining room, which has a small bar, feels cozy but sophisticated. On the first-course (primi) menu, there are the homemade pastas, such as the wild boar pappardelle and tortellini filled with butternut squash and nutmeg. As for the secondi, you may have a hard time choosing between the pork tenderloin with fontina pasta and the polenta-encrusted chicken with oven-roasted potatoes. For dessert, a salame di cioccolato (“chocolate salami”), a rich chocolate log of goodness, awaits.
