Fodor's Review

You won't find the menu online or much buzz among locals, but this Italian stalwart has maintained a pull on special-occasion diners for nearly three decades thanks in large part to its under-the-radar reputation. The three-course prix-fixe, your only option, changes every day, combining traditional dishes with the innovations of founding chef Peter Pastan, also known for steering legendary pizzeria 2 Amys. Representative main courses are lamb with garlic and sage and

handmade ravioli with unexpected fillings. The dining room is tiny, but the warm and attentive service makes this feel like a hidden gem. Diners always walk away pleased with their portion sizes, even given the high price tag.
