Whether producing crusty loaves of freshly baked bread, house-made pasta, or dough for its excellent thin-crust, wood-oven pizzas, this soothingly neutral Italian restaurant will satisfy carb cravings as well as yearnings for dishes that Grandma used to make. Not only can you taste the love in your lasagna, but also feel the comfort that comes from watching it prepared in the exhibition kitchen, from whence seasoned fish, grilled meats, and juicy rotisserie, such as free-range rosemary chicken, are also created and plated with fresh ingredients. Tiramisu is a must and best enjoyed from the terrace, where you can watch passersby. Buy a loaf to go in the diminutive bakery, located just steps away; other foodie finds are also available. Il Fornaio is a great place for breakfast and brunch or for pastry take-out from the bakery.
