Minestraio offers a handful of starters including some delicious little veal meatballs in tomato sauce, a couple of salads and a lovely eggplant parmigiana. But the best one to share is battilarda (seen here) a wooden board with Italian cold cuts. Its not the most generous platter around, but perfectly fine, especially for the pistachio-studded mortadella folded like handkerchiefs.
