The upscale patrons who favor this restaurant come for the brick-oven pizzas and the Tuscan-tinged entrées. Homemade pasta dishes like the popular rigatoni alla creole (veal and sausage with fresh plum tomatoes in sherry-cream sauce) come in generous portions. Weekend lunches are leisurely events. Doors open to the street in warmer weather, and lovely outdoor seating is available. You may, on occasion, spot a celebrity or two here. Love the food and wish you could make it at home?
