This complex of bars and a restaurant is a popular gathering place for stylish patrons looking for an Italy fix. Three specialty bars serve coffee, wine, and cocktails, and the restaurant offers delectable homemade pastas and desserts, with a signature dish of veal escalope with ham and sage, paired with saffron risotto. Cushioned brown benches and black wooden chairs surround white-clad tables with silver bread bowls. Eclectic photos, prints, and paintings adorn the walls,
and marble statues stand tucked in alcoves. The staff exudes the barest hint of attitude, and Tuscany and Piedmont jostle for space on the wine list. The open-air atrium, crammed with tables and summer diners, is decorated with olive trees, grape vines, and pink geraniums.
