The original Andrea returned to her native Capri, but the restaurant chugs on, attracting regulars with an inviting staff and reliable food. Perfectly grilled vegetables are sandwiched with goat cheese, stacked up and restrained from toppling by a simple twig of thyme. Pasta, made fresh daily, is eclipsed by the more satisfying secondi, like fork-tender braised lamb and succulent grilled chicken. Dessert: tiramisu. ’Nuff said.
