A Mediterranean-tiled interior and Christmas-light-trimmed awning have attracted Tribeca’s daytime workforce to this popular luncheonette. But it’s the toothsome Caprese fare, such as tramezzini sandwiches layered with grilled vegetables and house-made mozzarella, that keeps the 17 seats filled. It’s also a good option for dinner. Pastas, prepared on a two-burner stove, include perfectly al dente rigatoni lightly coated in bolognese. It’s just a matter of time before the lunch crowd starts returning at night.
