Paper Moon Milano has the cool, stylish feel of its Italian namesake. The sleek interior intersperses dark wood, leather, and caffe latte-colored walls to rich effect: It feels a little like you’re a lump of sugar in a great cup of cappuccino. Glamorous black-and-white photos of Italian movie stars line the top of the bar area. The Northern Italian menu includes regional specialties like risotto, a wide selection of carpaccios, and Carciofi Milano, garlicky fried artichokes. Bruschetta is downright gorgeous, even pornographic: With thick hunks of toasted Italian bread topped with plump cannelloni beans and delicate pink curls of fresh tuna, it’s not to be missed. Mushroom ravioli is earthy, mellow and well-spiced. A half-dozen thin-crust pizzas satisfy more timid eaters here as well as at the nearby Paper Moon Express, which shares the same kitchen and allows takeout. Pizzas are safe but just okay—a little soggy and skimpy on the toppings, though the fresh mozzarella is perfectly browned and a dash of rosemary in the tomato sauce is a fragrant, subtle touch.


Take-out is available from sister restaurant Paper Moon Express, located at 54 E. 59th St.
