Push aside the overlong menu at this rustic Italian den and ask for recommendations. Servers’ guidance can navigate you to the stars, such as a spicy grilled octopus with fingerling potatoes and a boldly piscine spaghetti with anchovies, and away from the plethora of duplicate items. Homemade pastas and homey preparations evoke a family-meal atmosphere, as does the noisy room. The Italian wine list, with many generous by-the-glass options, caters to a wide spectrum of tastes.
