Time Out says

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

This spectacular eatery is still first class and still small and intimate in a deal-making way, with food that stands apart from the Italian crowd. The big, beautiful rib eye lies on a bed of arugula, and veal piccata is paired with mushrooms and Asiago cheese. Risotto with fresh radicchio and shrimp is well worth its 20-minute preparation time. Chef Mario Di Chiara even manages to turn a mixed-vegetable appetizer into something special, topping asparagus and zucchini with crumbled goat cheese and a drizzle of truffle oil. The incredibly creamy tiramisu, served in a wine glass, is a happy ending.
