Restaurants, Italian Little Italy

Time Out says

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

Though it’s too early to declare a Little Italy dining renaissance, we welcome this Jersey import, which greets patrons with a classier-than-usual interior: There’s a blazing fireplace, and black-and-white photos of Frank Sinatra and homey ceramics line the walls. Food is pricey, but tasty, and served in giant portions: A pile of risotto, topped with prawns and sprinkled with dill, is rich and warming; tender veal marsala comes with a side of pleasantly bitter broccoli rabe. Skip the linguine (loaded with clams but yearning for garlic) and head straight for dessert: Both fluffy tiramisu and an oozing chocolate cake were supremely good, if familiar.
