Restaurants, Italian Midtown East

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

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.
