Description

It’s a Jason Stratton (Cascina Spinasse, Artusi) ristorante for the tourist district—without the twinkling farmstead warmth of Spinasse, or the Euro-edge of Artusi, but with a crowdpleasing menu of antipasti, contorni, housemade pastas, and rich Italian meats, served in an urbane high-ceilinged, high-windowed space not built for lingering. Generally speaking meats outshine pastas here—if the slow-roasted pork ribs over salsa tonnata is on the card, it’s a specialty—and vegetables and big chicory salads are usually winners. The place wears a tourist identity at times too visibly (beware the upselling waiter), but there are worse sins downtown. And the bar is great.
