Some days you just want to drown yourself in a pool of noodles and eat your way out. But after eating the pumpkin tortelli, grilled shrimp rigatoni, and wood-roasted mushroom lasagna at L'oca d'oro, not just any im-pasta will do. L'oca d'oro can satisfy the craziest of carb craving, making your cheat day actually worth it. We salute the golden goose for putting the glee back into gluten.
