Against the grubby backdrop of Third and 23rd and its wheezing crosstown buses, this honey-lit Italian ristorante looks like one of the classier joints around: Tin ceilings are painted chocolate brown, and there’s a preponderance of mahogany and brass. Beyond the gleaming wood, though, is your basic pizza parlor with touches of a polished pub. The simple menu hinges on bubbling pies whisked out of the eponymous brick ovens. Above the long bar, TVs flicker mutely with B-movies and sports, while an incongruous soundtrack of Pavarotti-style opera swells from overhead speakers. Greek-Italian owner Andreas' pies easily trump the other offerings, with savory toppings like prosciutto and artichokes. The pastas are ho-hum, not unlike what you’d get at, say, an Olive Garden.Recommended Dishes
