Chris Pandel’s rustic-regional domain is like your favorite sweater in restaurant form: Yes, it looks good, but it makes you feel even better. The kitchen excels when flour is involved: pillowy pizzas, hearty pastas, and simple bruschettas. Affable servers can occasionally stumble over pacing, but take another sip from one of the potent amaro-laced cocktails and you’ll be too delighted to care. Desserts shine.
