Find house-made pastas and baked goods at this Italian comfort-food spot, from Aurora and Emporio owner Elena Fabiano. Housed in the longtime Zito's Bakery space, the restaurant is kitted out with vintage baking tools, whitewashed brick walls and original tile flooring. From the oven, Piedmont, Italy, native Ricardo Buitoni—an Aurora carryover—pulls Sardinian flatbreads, potted chicken foie with poached figs, and pizzetta topped with house-made pork sausage and dandelion. The pasta menu features pappardelle with veal-cheek ragù and bucatini with cured guanciale, and the all-Italian wine list spotlights small producers from Alto Adige.
