The generous use of fresh oregano and basil in the Northern Italian dishes and the wide-open space of the minimalist 50-seat dining room are worth appreciating at this eatery. What’s less a cause for enthusiasm is how they’ve jacked up the prices to the ceiling without consistently delivering quality. While more reasonably priced dishes like the Chicken Milanese are generous in portion, deep-fried cutlets are bland at best, and $30 pasta should be high-end and house-made. Seafood makes a better splash as in the spicy fra diavolo, a perfectly delightful mix of tender calamari, bay scallops, and shrimp. And that’s no fish tale.Recommended Dishes
