Walking into this intimate space feels like coming home. The thoughtful menu changes seasonally, keeping the locals coming back for more. Each meal starts with a little plate of marinated olives and fresh bread from the wood-burning oven. A colorful, multitextured work of art is the dish of marinated and thinly shaved baby beets over a Parmesan mousse with a sprinkle of fennel pollen and tiny, peppery basil leaves. When it comes to the creamy, al dente pastas, it’s hard to choose between the tortellini di ricotta with blood orange zest, the trompetti with braised artichokes, the saffron chitarra with Gulf shrimp and romanesco . . . The combinations are irresistible. But don’t miss the thin-crusted pizzas, like the one with speck and slow-roasted tomatoes. The wine list is extensive, which likely contributes to the ever-present and delightful sounds of good conversation.
