Sherrie G.Sherrie Gulmahamad: Right now, a little scene-y and buzz-y but worth it. Get a few small plates and split a pasta or pizza and save room for dessert. Try an Austria red wine too!

EaterEater: There's heavy emphasis on house-cured meats, pizzas, and pastas, with unexpected and inspired flavors. The beverage program here, from cocktails to wine, is a hit, too. [Eater 38 Member]

Melissa R.Melissa Richardson Banks aka Downtown Muse: Tartufo black truffle pizza and Cavatelli alla Norcina pasta (ricotta dumplings, more black truffles!) are THE best! Start with chicken liver crostino. For dessert? Try the chocolate tart!
