Paolo Montana (a former manager at Da Umberto) is behind this casual European bistro. Sip a glass of wine or classic cocktail, like the Negroni or Americano, at the limestone bar. The rustic menu is made up of simple dishes, like steak frites, whole roasted Mediterranean sea bream and penne picante, which mixes crumbled sweet Italian sausage with a tomato, basil and ricotta sauce.
