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 Italian spot is notable for austere decor (only a few picture frames dot the walls) and snotty service (our waiter mocked us when we didn’t finish a flavorless appetizer of white beans and sausage). Only entrées proved redemptive: Tender lamb shank came with savory lentils, and excellent pastas hailing from Gotham noodle mecca Raffetto’s included a pappardelle in a tasty tomato cream with cubes of smoked bacon. Pass over desserts, like rock-hard balls of ice cream in thick chocolate shells.
