A series on our favorite dishes in Northern Virginia.
By Stefanie Gans
Dish: Tagliatelle and meatballs, $12 (lunch)
Where: Ozzie’s, 11880 Grand Commons Ave., Fairfax
Taste: Before it’s too hot. Before a bowl of comfort consists of ice cream, instead of pasta, live once more through twirls of carbohydrates. At Ozzie’s, inside a nest of noodles, tender meatballs, a mix of veal, pork and beef, are graced with a sheen of marinara. It’s simple. It’s solid. It’s an excuse to load the plate with parm. It’s one last meal before summer strikes.
