What separates this ristorante from the red-sauce pack is its refreshingly warm welcome; enthusiastic, accommodating service; and toothsome pastas like maccheroni alla chitarra with lamb ragu, a specialty of chef-owner Paolo Catini's native Abruzzi. In keeping with the spirit of the neighborhood, menu prices top out at $19, which buys a trio of herb-marinated lamb chops or a sliced grilled steak.
