Roman fare is the focus of this elegant Nolita trattoria, which references the old country with 1940s Italian wallpaper and vintage mirrors. Do as the Romans do and get a square slice, topped with porcini and truffles or eggplant and mozzarella. Diners with more time to kill can post up at the Carrara-marble bar for specialties like penne arrabbiata and spaghetti carbonara.
