The Low Down


Save Money: The menu is organized around the traditional courses of "antipasti," "primi" and "secondi," but smaller plates are built for sharing, and a couple of them easily makes a meal.

What to Drink: Wine is the obvious choice with dinner (try a glass of 2007 Tammellini Soave with fish or vegetable-heavy dishes), but cocktailers get their due with a pared-down list of interesting drinks built around seasonal fruits and artisanal spirits.

Where to Sit: The 12-seat Chef's Table puts larger groups right next to the partially open kitchen and within drooling distance of the impressive 8-foot glass and wood display case full of cheeses and housemade salumi.
