The lowdown

In a town where Italian restaurants blend together like so much Sunday sauce, you need to stand out. In this case, it’s a design in keeping with the Theater District locale: a rustic Puglian farmhouse, stone walls, ceiling beams, and all. The wide-ranging menu integrates Italian imports like burrata and bottarga, finds compelling uses for the region’s abundance of beans, and doesn’t stint on the pasta options, which run the gamut from linguine with clams to a destination ravioli filled with fresh caciotta cheese.
