Piero Selvaggio’s companion restaurant to his LA original, delivered by executive chef Luciano Pellegrini, is authentic in every regard. The food is plenty impressive, whether you order pollo al mattone (young chicken in a succulent lemon caper sauce), veal or baked Mediterranean bass. Accompany your choice with one of the Italian cocktails and finish with tiramisu or flan—all delivered in a room that stays on the right side of the line separating handsome from gauche.
