This corner trattoria doesn’t blow the lid off of Southern Italian cooking, but there’s much to appreciate on its familiar menu. Crusty bread arrives at the table not only warm but appropriately charred; brick-oven pizza has incited a fan base that insists it stands up to Grimaldi’s and Lombardi’s. The wine list is brief but thoughtful, with selections from California, Germany, Italy, and South Africa. The dining room, a modest rectangle bordered by glass-and-wood doors, houses just over a dozen tables, with a curtain separating the clientele from the kitchen. When the weather is right, regulars prefer outdoor meals that allow them to peer down the street at the Hudson River.Recommended Dishes
