Il Violino Photo
This casual neighborhood restaurant near Lincoln Center serves hit-or-miss Italian food. The outdated main dining room and bar is haphazardly furnished with violins and framed head shots of opera stars, but the glassed-in corner corridor provides decent views of passersby. Some tempting flavor combinations, like a recent scallops served with spinach and currants, arrive dry and tasteless, but basics succeed, such as the large portion of homemade pappardelle alla bolognese with a hearty ragu.
