Rome native Fabio Hakill (Park Side, Piccolino) looks to old-line Italian dining for this midtown restaurant, furbished with gothic chandeliers and red-and-gold banquettes. House-made pastas are on offer, such as tortelloni al pomodoro and fettuccine with porcini mushrooms, while entrées include aged porterhouse in fennel sauce, veal scaloppine with artichoke hearts and Colorado rack of lamb in mint demi-glace. The Italian-heavy wine list includes 64 varietals by bottle and 18 by glass.
