Restaurants, Italian Midtown East
2 Love It
Save it

The team behind the Greek taverna Avra try their hands at Italian food at this expansive three-floor restaurant. By day, you can grab a quick lunch in one of the streamlined dining rooms (we liked the simple salad of beet with goat cheese and asparagus). During dinner you’ll find well-prepared standards like a pancetta-packed penne alla vodka and the obligatory chicken Parm. Though pizza gets top billing (the white version with fig compote, blue cheese and prosciutto is a knockout), most pies are undersauced and overcooked, with a thick, brittle crust. If you’re jonesing for red-sauce Italian, Aperitivo should fit the bill. But get your slices elsewhere.
