You won’t need insider connections to land a table at this airy Da Silvano spin-off. Scuderia’s easy charm manifests in decent pizzas (the namesake pie features fig jam, Gorgonzola and speck atop a chewy crust) and pastas (black-pepper pappardelle comes bathed in a hearty beef-cheek ragù). Mains are middling, but Scuderia compensates with a playful sense of humor: Fun desserts include a deconstructed tiramisu (espresso with ladyfingers for dipping), and upbeat, breezy servers wear jeans, T-shirts and Converse kicks.
