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 lend sophistication, while the front sidewalk patio is a top people-watching spot. The Italian-leaning menu showcases antipasti, pastas (bucatini alle vongole), and mains (like pollo al mattone, or chicken under a brick), but it's the knockout pizzas that are always a hit. Order the Napoli, topped with anchovies, capers, and peperoncino, which two can handily put away, especially when a set of shears is delivered for slicing any way you want. It's a linger-a-little-longer kind of place, so order the gelato affogato al caffè with robust espresso.
