Don’t be dissuaded by the burrito bar next door, or by the apparent hex this corner has put on a series of ill-fated Indian restaurants. Villa Pazzo, the newest tenant, is producing high-quality Italian fare with an ambitious wine list complementing its extensive menu. The ristorante-vinoteca takes its wine mission seriously, with more than 200 bottles on offer. Relatively few are available by the glass, but the patient, informative waitstaff help diners make full-bottle choices they won’t regret—something to offset the toothsome richness of a porcini risotto, or to balance the spicy kick of pennes arrabiata, or to deliver a dry, light note to salmon dusted with parsley and cracked pepper. By day, the bright, swirl-painted ceilings and walls evoke equal parts Gustav Klimt and Peter Max; it’s probably better to visit in the date-friendly evening hours, when tabletop candles set in cut-down Campari bottles flicker and glimmer off the long, wine-bottle-lined wall.
