Profile

Although the menu isn’t weakened by the all-over-the-boot approach typical to many Italian restaurants, Caffe Bondi’s forays into cucina Siciliana only occasionally succeed. Dishes like pasta con sarde or triangular slices of panelli (a polenta-ish dough made with chickpea flour, lightly fried) topped with fresh ricotta and vibrant red marinara represent Sicily well, but gnocchi, said to be made fresh daily, prove an oversize, gluey mess. The straw colored walls of the roomy, warmly lit dining room are proudly hung with two broad, framed embroidered tapestries sewn by chef and owner Salvatore Anzalone’s Sicilian grandma. You only wish the kitchen were so assured.
