The team that charmed the Upper West Side with tiny Celeste has channeled the spirit of a Romagnese granny at this downtown outpost, where lasagna comes Emilia-Romagna-style (with béchamel and meat ragù), and a wonderfully chewy noodle called gramigna is studded with sausage and sweet red pepper. No reservations, no credit cards, and a very appealing, all-Italian wine list—just like uptown.Recommended Dishes
