This casual Italian wine bar hits all the right notes: It's convivial, food is solidly good, and there's plenty of wine—more than 15 by the glass (available in 2- or 8-ounce pours) and a long list of bottles. The menu is straightforward: assortments of Italian cured meats and cheeses, about 10 salads and vegetable dishes, and 4–5 pastas or pizzas. Even the gelato is special, made by a local artisan. A young, savvy staff right fits into the upbeat surroundings, with
a marble counter, a handful of banquettes, and tables for two and four. There's a weekend brunch.
