Hello, Noelle. I live in the Inland Empire, and I love this restaurant in Loma Linda called Napoli. The food and the service are always wonderful. Everything on the menu is usually very good, however my favorite is the capellini al gamberetti. I have tried to make it at home, but, alas, something/everything is missing. Could you please try to get the recipe?
