Smith Street’s restaurant row gains its latest Italian spot, this one from Puglia native and chef Dino Castri (PT). A banquette runs along much of the narrow, 50-seat dining room, while a back garden offers an alfresco option. Castri’s menu shows his southern roots in dishes like house-made spaghetti alla chitarra in a cream sauce with sea urchin and scallops.
