The space is as the name implies—modern, with high ceilings, done in neutral shades—with an oversize chalkboard displaying daily specials, such as a delicious chickpea and baccalà (salt cod) soup. The food runs toward the traditional but with a twist, like a pasta all'amatriciana with kosher beef instead of the requisite pork guanciale (cured pork jowl). Main courses are more creative but can be hit or miss. The friendly serving staff and reasonable prices are pluses, as is the outdoor seating—a few tables surrounded by greenery, off a lovely cobblestone street.
