***** (5 stars)
This is everything you’d want in a neighborhood Italian place: intimate, great ambiance, good food, nice wine list, friendly service.
Beef carpaccio was a nice starter, and I really enjoyed their unique Ceasar salad, which uses radicchio rather than romaine. It was a non-bitter variety of radicchio I hadn’t had before.
Their tiramisu is also unconventional, served in a bowl; it lacked the boozy ladyfingers in my favorite versions. But the affogato was excellent.
