D.C. Pasta Company, Dante Boccuzzi and Carmela del Busso's new Italian eatery, officially parts its doors tonight. Located in Strongsville, in the home of the short-lived Palate, D.C. features affordable Italian classics built around housemade pasta.

The meat of the menu consists of 10 pastas, each available by the taste ($4), appetizer ($8) or main ($15). Options include a hearty Bolognese with ragu of beef, veal and pork; seafood pasta with mussels, clams, shrimp and crab; pumpkin-filled tortellini; and linguini with truffle cream sauce.

Other entrees include simple grilled preparations of trout, chicken, hangar steak or scallops, all priced between $15 and $18 and served with roasted potatoes and broccolini.

Starters include mussels with spicy sausage ($8), a fritto misto of fried smelt, squid and shrimp ($8), and a Tuscan bean soup ($5). Meatballs — pork, lamb, turkey, beef or ricotta cheese — can be purchased for $1.50 a pop. There also is a selection of marinated snacks (think artichokes, anchovies, peppers, eggplant…), cured meats (prosciutto, coppa, mortadella, sopressata…), and cheeses.

Keeping with the "affordable" theme, there are two dozen bottles of wine priced at $25 and below.

D.C. Pasta is open for lunch Monday through Friday (starting Monday) and dinner Monday through Saturday.
