Fodor's Review

Everyone from college students to cigar kings, presidents to politicos, photographers to movie stars pack this eccentrically decorated culinary landmark. Tourists take photos of the bathrooms, with their ornate mirrors and Romanesque plaster sinks. Chef-owner Paolo's mouthwatering creations are authentic and fresh. Ask about the tasting menu, or try the great antipasto selections; commence with the Pasticcio salad. Even the bread service comes with three sauces (the best is a creamy anchovy). Finish with a shot of limoncello and cheesecake. And if it's too dim to read the menu, just look up—it's also written on the ceiling. The outdoor terrace seating is new, along with a wall of black-and-white photos of former film stars. The value here is remarkable.
