While happily not living up to its name, which means “chaos,” Baraonda’s lively take on Northern Italian cuisine is an integral part of owner Enrico Proietti’s Upper East Side troika, along with Per Lei and Bella Blu. Here, the dining room’s orange walls are hung with riotously colorful portraits by artist Valentino Cortázar; orange-upholstered banquettes, wooden chairs, and small white-draped tables are set off by recessed ceiling lights topped with colored parchment cones. The kitchen, led by chef Giuseppe Mazzeo, adeptly balances refinement and robustness. Pleasingly rich baby artichokes are served with pistachios, mache and Parmesan. Homemade pastas are first-rate.  Pan-seared Chilean sea bass is moist and velvety, tasty fuel for smart diners’ wee-hours dancing.
