Chef Elizabeth Falkner, formerly of Krescendo, is the chef at this massive Upper West Side Italian restaurant. With a nearly translucent ceiling, walls covered in potted plants, and hanging branches, Corvo Bianco could very well be an outdoor patio on the Tuscan countryside. Falkner’s signature grilled pizzas are scaled back here, as they’re offered as miniature appetizers and bar snacks. Small dishes like the classic Italian meatball sliders and spicy roasted cauliflower with browned butter and Aleppo are excellent for sharing. There are plenty of pastas and ragùs on the menu, but Falkner outdoes herself with giant gnudi on top of roasted eggplant and ricotta. Gluten-free yet rich, the thick pockets are fluffy and sweet. Don’t skimp on the seemingly extravagant and deconstructed desserts. The tartufo, swimming in cocoa nibs, thick chocolate sauce, and Roman hazelnuts, is a great way to end the meal. There’s also a fun bar scene here, which is perfect for a nightcap.
