Fodor's Review

This upscale Italian restaurant is always crammed and the tables are jammed too close together, but everyone still comes for the unrivalled spread of regional Italian small plates. Located off Theatreland's Shaftesbury Avenue, the family-run trattoria offers a magnificent menu featuring peasant-based pastas, stews, roasts, and crudités from Piedmont to Bologna. Try the Calabrian orecchiette pasta with red-hot 'nduja pork sausage or the Sicilian lobster spaghetti touched off with mussels and ginger. Sip an Aperol spritz before plunging into the all-Italian wine list, which weaves from Super Tuscans to ballsy Barolos.
