This popular Upper East Side restaurant—outfitted with bronze Murano chandeliers and antique tables—is home to a menu of rustic Italian fare. To start, there are appetizers including formaggi with house-made jam and lentil soup. Pastas come piled with meat (pappardelle alla bolognese) or Greenmarket vegetables (fusilli with cabbage, pumpkinseeds and apple). Bottles from the Piedmont and Toscana regions of Italy lead the wine list, while cocktails showcase traditional amari and digestifs.
