With a choice view onto one of the city’s most captivating corners, this West Village trattoria lures with authentic Sardinian fare. Behind floor-to-ceiling windows, an attractive, boisterous crowd feasts on the usual suspects: veal meatballs, grilled squid, and piping-hot bowls of homemade pasta. While the menu weighs heavily on seafaring classics, this sunny spot also properly pays its respects to wild game with a myrtle-laced suckling pig and grilled wild boar. But the real gems are a selection of silky carpaccios—tuna, salmon, or beef, all brightened up with lemon and olive oil—as well as dangerously sumptuous nibbles of gnocchi fragrantly washed in a white truffle sauce.Extra
Not many restaurants can brag a drive-by dining window, but at Osteria Del Sole’s adjacent barrota, New Yorkers can get their cappuccino fix and a superior pressed panini without entering the premises.
Daily, noon—5 p.m.
