This vibrant Italian wine bar caters to a decidedly Upper East Side clientele. Chef Claudio Cristofoli, who hails from northern Italy, prepares simple, rustic Italian fare, including antipasti, homemade pastas such as pappardelle and agnolotti, generous cuts of meat, and whole roasted or grilled fish. To accompany the hearty primi and secondi are straightforward sides, large enough to share family-style, including roasted cauliflower gratin, broccolini with garlic and olive oil, and sweet peperonata. The wine list is extensive, featuring Italian wines from Piedmont to Sicily. Though the service can feel somewhat hectic and rushed, the staff is friendly.
