This Upper East Side trattoria is an offshoot of Bocca di Bacco in Hell's Kitchen. The menu features mostly classic Italian dishes, like fettuccine bolognese, minestrone soup, and a Roman-style suckling pig made with garlic, spinach, pine nuts and raisins. But a handful of the items have an Asian accent—inspired by the chef's time working in China—including Sardinian dumplings with sausage, Chinese broccoli and pecorino, and chicken with soy sauce, rosemary and fingerling potatoes.
