This snug Theater District wine bar from the restaurant group behind such dependable Italians as Puttanesca and Il Bastardo transcends the typical crostini, salumi, and cheese. Sturdy wood-shutter tables, straw-seated chairs, and beamed walls anchor the one-room space, which also boasts a spot for communal dining. The expert kitchen finesses Italian comfort classics like succulent meatballs in parsley red sauce and a bountiful fritti of calamari, zucchini and shrimp with just the right amount of batter, salt and oil. There’s a dish of incredibly light gnocchi and braised cabbage-dressed short ribs. Desserts are just as delicious: A strawberry-spin on “tiramisu” sneaks fresh berries between fluffy layers of mascarpone cream and ladyfinger crumble. A list of over 150 wines keeps theater-goers and post-work locals busy at the white stone bar, but with satisfying portions averaging $17, the food here is one of the area's best deals since TKTS.
