With a serious reputation for house-made pasta and wood-fired pizzas, it's no surprise that Julian Barsotti's handsome pocket-sized trattoria is considered to be one of the top Italian restaurants in town. Expect to find a roster of seasonal specialties ranging from Neapolitan style pizzas topped with fresh sardines to Maine lobster ravioli, grilled snapper, and shiitake mushroom risotto stuffed quail. A well thought out Italian wine list and desserts like dark chocolate molten cake with salted caramel gelato complete the picture. Can't score a reservation? No worries, the restaurant usually keeps a few seats at the bar open for walk-ins.
