Price Scale

Jerry Huisinga performs quiet, old-school Italian magic at this casually modern satellite of Caffe Mingo next door. Get a spread of starters for the table, especially the lip-smacking chicken livers dancing on crispy toast, the mint-spiked lamb meatballs, and the best calamari around, super fresh and springy. Pasta rules, with at least a half dozen options nightly, all made fresh, from a silky, soulful, big-flavored lasagna to chitarra with spicy puttanesca and fried bottarga bread crumbs. The risotto (Wednesday only) banishes local competitors simply because it’s the real thing, made in two fresh batches with surgical concentration.
