The Pensare Italian Bistro is out of business -- closed for good. Too bad because they had good food but few customers. Rumor has it that the space is to be taken over by a sushi bar.

Fantastic homemade pasta and a large wine selection. Seating is limited so reservations are a must. Try the Tortellini Dunedin pasta. It's stuffed with veal, rich and delicious.
