Locanda Vini e Olii Photo

A beautifully restored 130-year-old Clinton Hill pharmacy complete with apothecary drawers and rolling ladders right out of Henry Higgins's library is the charming backdrop for this terrific Tuscan restaurant. Michele Baldacci, a young chef recruited from Italy, turns out uncommon antipasti and salads; main dishes like "il cacciucco" seafood stew; and a wealth of exquisitely sauced pastas like thyme maltagliati with roasted mushrooms. The excellent house wines are sold "consumption"-style. The bottle is left on the table, you help yourself, and whatever's left is theatrically measured with a homemade stick. It's the most fun you can have in a drugstore without a prescription.
