The newer sister restaurant to nearby Malatesta, this neighborhood trattoria sits on a relatively quiet corner of the West Village. The menu isn’t ambitious, but it is filled with comforting and reliable options. An appetizer of grilled polenta topped with mushrooms delivers nice textural contrasts even if it lacks the complexity of its sausage-topped cousin. Arugula, grapefruit, orange and mint salad delivers freshness and vibrancy beneath a simple dressing. A selection of chewy-crusted pizzas with toppings like artichoke and coppa or potatoes and pancetta make an affordable main course or an appetizer to split among the table. Larger dishes include a grilled branzino, served whole with the bones removed. This is tender, flavorful and attentively prepared with simple seasonings. Vegetable lasagne and roast pork chop also make appearances as stalwarts on a menu of well-executed standards. Italian wines by the glass are decent, though unremarkable. Order a glass of Chianti, and be sure to save room for the top-notch tiramisu.Note
