Chef/owner and Schwa veteran Gaetano Nardulli brings a personal take on modern Italian to his sleek and casual hidden gem. The crispy arancine with a creamy center of braised chicken and provolone and the grilled octopus with fennel, almonds, sweet peppers, and chimichurri stand out among the shareable starters. Housemade papardelle and wax beans in a spicy anchovy and tomato sauce is a sumptuous pasta choice, while the best entrée is the juicy rib eye on mushroom purée with garlic confit, rapini, and pickled radish. Yummy desserts include ricotta fritters with vanilla sugar. Wines and clever cocktails are as well priced as everything else.
