Everything about this upscale Italian spot is oversized, from its space near Copley Square to its portions. The sexy, all-white dining room is filled with well-heeled locals (some live in the gorgeous apartment building above it) who come for the modern twist on basic Italian dishes. Grilled octopus with squid-ink couscous, various versions of carpaccio, and the signature tuna tartare dot the list of starters, while veal saltimbocca with wild mushrooms and truffled whipped
potato takes the spotlight. Just save room for dessert: it's always a highlight here.
