Old-world charm, an excellent seasonal antipasto, and classically prepared pastas, veal chops, Italian bouillabaisse, and osso buco. Very cozy narrow booths line the east wall, and tile floors take you back to the Gilded Age. Try a bowl of the homemade papardelle, doused in orange casaligna sauce (made of tomatoes and ricotta cheese)—preferably on a holiday evening, when the beautiful old mahogany-trimmed room is all aglow with Christmas lights.Extra
