At this enduringly popular nautical-themed hangout, the buzz is as important as the food. Which means seats are always at a premium. But don't let that deter you from coming. The restaurant serves terrific Italian cuisine and offers great specials on booze and food throughout the week. Not to mention, it has one of the coziest people-watching patios in the neighborhood. As far as food goes, there's something for everyone (think kid-friendly, gluten-free, organic and vegetarian)-- which might be the reason why Villa-O attracts such a diverse crowd of folks. Wood-fired pizzas with crispy charred crusts and a variety of toppings are definitely a draw, as are hand-made pastas like the pappardelle with crab meat and broccoli rabe. Try to make it for weekend brunch when bottomless mimosas, bellinis and bloody marys can be had for $10.
