Fodor's Review

This buzzing Italian bistro consistently attracts hordes of South Congress Avenue’s heavy foot traffic. Patrons crowd the narrow, warmly-lit bar while waiting for a table in the small, tawny-hued dining room. Noshing on the gratis white-bean puree with basil-infused olive oil makes perusing the menu of delicate handmade pastas, thin wood-fired pizzas, and robust Northern Italian-inspired entrées an even greater treat. Chef specials change daily, including soul-warming risottos of the day—the last bowl we tried included braised veal and black truffle oil. Smoky, prosciutto-wrapped prawns never disappoint, nor does the savory veal scallopine wrapped with sage, prosciutto, and wilted spinach.
