The Low Down


Look Good: If you don't know your "fregola" from your "farro," consult the menu's glossary. It'll also enlighten you with the meaning of "lupa": she-wolf.

Know Before You Go: Parties of seven or more must order the tasting menu, which is $60 per person.

What to Drink: The stellar Italian wine list features many rare, regional selections in the $20 to $35 range. Ciro's San Felice Ducale, a rootsy red from Calabria, is a fave.
