Suited-up Downtown lunch and after-work crowds love this straightforward Italian eatery for its elegant, white-tableclothed aesthetic; very reliable dishes; extensive (if expensive) wine list; and welcoming, sometime loud, ambience. It's not the super trendy spot that many of its neighbors are, which makes this bustling, upscale-without-being-overly-uptight eatery a pleasant place for a meal. Start with tender calamari or prosciutto with fresh melon; the papparadelle
cinghial (wild boar ragu served over wide, flat noodles) is popular, as is the housemade gnocchi Gorgonzola. Pizzas and salads are also on the menu, as well as a well-executed tiramisu.
