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 nearly private banquettes in this sedate peach-colored room would provide a nice huddle for midtown deal makers or illicit lovers—or anyone else who’s here for a reason other than the food. Appetizers and pastas can be pleasing, including the jumbo seared scallops basking in a brandied saffron sauce. But soggy bruschetta reeked of raw garlic; the chicken Montebello was a pallid paillard; and a special of striped bass was merely swiped with tomato sauce and dotted with a few chewy clams. Offerings from the rolling dessert cart were unremarkable.
