As cool as a Sophia Loren flick, this Mediterranean beauty serves up delicious Napolitano cuisine (the chef's hometown) with flavors that match the vibrant bar area and fashionable dining room. The offerings extend far beyond the delicious, authentic brick oven pizza, but these crispy creations will satisfy hardcore fans and win over new converts. That brick oven also perfectly toasts a selection of upscale calzones, another excellent choice. Or you could go for the velvety seafood risotto, potato-leek-truffle oil soup, eggplant with peppers, tuna carpaccio, or lamb meatballs. The veal chop and dorado blew us away on our last visit, and the coffee panna cotta and tiramisu made us break our “no dessert” rule. Really, it’s hard to find losers on the menu here.
