This casually elegant Staten Island eatery owes its popularity to the constant presence of chef-owners Vittorio Asoli and Anthony LoBianco as well as to the wood-burning brick oven that cooks everything from pizza to portobellos. Late in the week, expect to wait for a table. If you’re looking for memorable stuffed artichokes, they’re here, in all their garlicky glory. The saltimbocca alla romana is another classic done right—tender veal scaloppine topped with salty prosciutto and accented with butter and sage.
