Run by husband-and-wife team Fabrizio and Frederica Ferrara (he's Sicilian and a former sous-chef at the Relais du Plaza AthenÃ©e, she's Milanese and a former pastry chef at Rose Bakery), the restaurant offers a daily-changing menu of "a little bit of everything we like," says Fabrizio.
While Fabrizio's brother oversees the wine list, the couple takes turns at the stove in full view of their guests. Specialty dishes include linguini with clams, pasta alla Norma and risotto.
Lunch or dinner costs between 15 to 20 euros, or $21 to $28, excluding wine. Reservations are a must.
