The Low Down
Know Before You Go: In a sea of fish menu items, duck is the only land-leaning entree option.
The Extras: In warmer months, ask to sit in the charming outdoor garden. If you're sans reservation, which can be made up to 30 days in advance, request a seat at the small bar.
Look Good: For a wide-ranging sample, try the tasting menus either for the crudo (six items for $30) or for the entire menu ($65, $95 paired with wine).
What to Drink: Ask for the gracious sommelier to help navigate the lengthy all-Italian wine list. The dessert wines are especially fun: Try the sparkling moscato from Rivetti ($7) for a light finish, or the recioto from Vegali ($16) for a full-bodied rich ending.
