Although this annex to Da Silvano has a bar—a convenient place to sip a drink (or three) during the inevitable wait—it's not serving bar food. It's a serious restaurant in its own right, with a serious menu of beef carpaccio, taglierini with hot and sweet sausage, and langostine alla catalana. The narrow sliver of a room has French doors, Italian straw-bottomed seats and bar stools, tea-stained stucco, and a vintage hand-cranked Italian slicer, guaranteeing perfect prosciutto.
