Find classic Italian sauces (bolognese, amatriciana, marinara), along with more-modern plates (whole-wheat spaghetti), on the menu at this 69-seat restaurant. Post up at the marble-topped bar, or follow the neon-pink "This Way" sign to the main dining room, outfitted with a glass ceiling and monochrome tiles. Choose from more than 40 wines to pair with pastas, salads and traditional Italian plates, or sip on a speciality cocktail, like Daria's Melons (fresh watermelon, Campari, Bombay Sapphire and pink peppercorn).
