MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Remaining as hot and hip as ever, this is the kind of place you head to for rib-sticking pastas or a whole branzino fresh off the wood-burning grill. It all feels like a labor of love inside, thanks to the husband-and-wife team who make it their mission to bring delicious food to this neighborhood. The space itself is warehouse-sized, with a copper bar, booths that almost appear suspended and a red-domed oven firing in the corner.

The lobster crostino is justifiably popular, but also sample casarecce al pomodoro—pasta made from semolina and tossed in tomato sugo and ricotta. Desserts are equally enticing: don’t miss the humbly named “coffee and donuts,” served as spiced chestnut zeppole alongside excellent coffee gelato and a dollop of sweet whipped cream.
