Via Della Pace
Cesari Bruni (of Boom and East Post) has transformed the East Village’s Caffe Della Pace into his own Via Della Pace. Of course there are panini and focaccia sandwiches stuffed with Italian meats and cheeses. Entrées include veal scaloppine with ham, asparagus and truffle oil, and a popular poppy-seed-crusted grilled tuna steak. A downstairs bar is available for private parties, or simply for lounging with one of 180 regional Italian wines. Every month or so, Bruni offers up the deal of the century: a five-course tasting menu, with a different wine to accompany each course, for $25 per person.

This is a gem of an establishment. I might be biased because we got the porch seat table, but the service was spectacular. Our waiter was attentive and the owner came around with after dinner drinks. When we realized it was cash only and had to make a run for the bank, he even gave me a shot for the road. While the food and sangria were good, the ambiance made it an enjoyable experience. The staff made an effort to make it feel like a family establishment, and I would definitely recommend.
