The city's most stylish Italian spot is paradoxically one of its simplest on the culinary front. The kitchen's emphasis is on fresh, intensely flavored ingredients in traditional dishes like monkfish served with ceci beans, olives, pesce brodetto and a citrus herb salad, and a tender lamb loin accompanied by fluffy polenta, cavalo nero, smoked almonds, and verjus. Even frequent visitors can enjoy an oft-changing menu, the result of the chef's penchant for seasonal ingredients. The abutting enoteca (café)—all mosaic tile and dim lighting—serves daily pizzas, and is the perfect spot for a rendezvous or a nightcap.

Two can easily make a meal at the bar ordering the crunchy eggplant, the mushroom arancini and a carafe of the house red and their delicious bread and basil infused olive oil

With Sorellina, this is one of the city's best upscale Italian spots not in the North End. Fancy digs, solid service, very good and often creative food. A little expensive, but a good choice in this price range and location.
