The restaurant serves a wide range of authentic Italian dishes prepared with seasonal ingredients. The plump Hokkaido scallops are lightly panseared, then accented with an addictive, foamy truffle emulsion. The crabmeat linguini is redolent in sweet tomato sauce studded with shreds of crabmeat; the touch of vodka ensures that it doesn’t get overly cloying. The veal osso buco is expertly done so that it’s fork-tender. It’s served atop creamy yellow risotto cooked with just the right amount of bite. The tiramisu is prepared the classic way, just how the chef’s mother prepares it. It’s sweet and delicious—and a perfect ending to an Italian meal. Italian labels dominate the wine list, but there are choices from other regions.
