Fettuccine porcini at Cupini’s

Emily Dye spends most of the year in Manhattan at Kansas State University, but when she’s back home in Kansas City, you can find her at Cupini’s, 1809 Westport Road. It’s “a no-brainer for Italian cuisine,” she says. Her go-to order: Fettuccine porcini ($9.99), fresh pasta in a light cream sauce with onions, prosciutto, earthy porcini mushrooms and plenty of black pepper. She ends most meals at Cupini’s on a sweet note with zuccotto ($4.59), a domed dessert cake swirled with raspberry and spiked with Grand Marnier orange liqueur. That’s amore.
