Critic’s Notes

At this cozy trattoria, Brad Schlieder showcases the milder side of the Italian table, eschewing red sauces and cheesy standards for lighter, more delicate fare. The results are mixed. The classic veal milanese and the breezy Bolognese sauce over tagliatelle sing, but the platings deserve more passion, as does the bland roast chicken. Happily, the fried zeppole and the panna cotta with red wine and caramel make bold finales.
