Fodor's Expert Review Al Fresco

$$$ Tortona Dinner

In Italian, al fresco means open-air, and when the weather cooperates you can dine in the candlelit garden of this restaurant converted from a former factory. The string lights and wooden tables create a romantic setting, while indoors, a greenhouse with terra-cotta floors is decorated with seasonal floral arrangements, chandeliers, and pendant lights to add to the 19th-century charm. The menu offers plenty of classic dishes from throughout Italy like fettuccine Campofilone pasta from Le Marche, a Milanese veal cutlet, and a codfish from Liguria. Fish and seafood are prominent for mains as are chef Andrea Mangiaracina's low-temperature cooking techniques. Wines from nearly every region in Italy make up the extensive list.
