Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Blue and white walls, painted ceiling beams and TVs tuned to European soccer matches give the entrance a small-town Italian feel; upstairs, the dining room is grander, with high ceilings and a wide wood-burning fireplace. Grilled shrimp and fat white beans drizzled with olive oil make a tasty starter, as does a tumble of arugula hiding sliced red beets and dabs of goat cheese. A special of seafood risotto, regrettably bland and gummy, was whisked away at a word and replaced with a bowlful of al dente bucatini, covered with a thick sun-dried tomato and artichoke sauce. Grilled orata, another special, was sweet and moist, presented whole at the table, then tidily deboned out of sight.
