Known for its down-home vibe and hearty Lombardian fare (with some southern Italian dishes thrown into the mix), this stalwart offers a winning experience in lively environs. The menu features polenta, saffron risotto, the famed veal osso bucco, homemade pastas (such as “mamma’s” tagliatelle with tomato sauce, meatballs, and peas), and plenty of seafood. Cheeses and traditional desserts such as tiramisu and panna cotta—as well as a refreshing citrus or green-apple sorbet—round out the fare. Book in advance for weekend dining, especially for a seat in the vineyard courtyard in summer.
