MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Ghibellina’s marble bar is a favorite hangout, but don’t let the cocktail-swilling patrons steer you away, since this kitchen gives its bar a serious run. Dark wood floors, iron accents and exposed brick are a nod to the Old World, while the front sidewalk patio is a top people-watching spot. Lunch is largely focused on salads and knockout pizzas. Ramp pizza reveals a delightful interplay between zingy, garlicky-onion ramps and creamy cheeses, including crumbled ricotta and fior di latte. Dinner expands to include antipasti, pastas (like bucatini alle vongole) and mains (like pollo al mattone or chicken under a brick). It's a linger-a-little-longer kind of place, so order dessert. The affogato al caffe's gelato with robust espresso is a nice finish.
