MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Perpetually packed and always pleasing, this cousin of elegant Lusardi’s is a rocking, rustic good time. Votive-filled nooks and fringed sconces cast a flattering light on the inviting room furnished with straw-seat chairs and wooden tables laden with wine bar-themed small plates. Cheeses, meats and salads are fine ways to start. The insalata di manzo is a tasty hybrid of all three-shaved lean beef topped with peppery young arugula, nutty parmesan and pickled mushrooms. Join the crowds at the start of the week for Meatball Mondays offering three courses revolving guessed it. Sample the hearty beef meatball ravioli garnished with sliced artichoke hearts, silky smooth tomato sauce and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
