Cure-all chef Paolo Nozzoli knew there was only one way to compete with all the salumieri in the Slope: He’d have to butcher and cure his own meat. At Scottadito Osteria Toscana, Nozzoli serves house-made prosciutto, speck (bacon) and guanciale (cured fat from hog jowls); ricotta gnocchi with spinach and sage; and a lamb chop with fried artichokes and lemon relish. The earthy cantina is the collaborative effort of Nozzoli, Donald Minerva and Michele De Bari. Among the rustic Tuscan trappings are terra-cotta walls, exposed beams an eat-in wine
cellar and a sunny atrium.
