This stylish Italian charmer is a neighborhood restaurant fit for the modern age. Expect blistered Neapolitan-style pizzas straight from the wood oven; excellent handmade pastas; and vegetable-focused small plates. The space is snug, so try to nab reservations ahead-a challenging feat given its popularity. For a thoroughly 21st century bit of hospitality, request a text message when a counter seat opens. Plump diver scallops arrive seared to golden, sporting crisp fennel slivers, crushed hazelnut and juicy mandarin orange, while al dente rigatoni is tossed in a ricotta sauce dotted with pork sausage. For dessert, the seasonal option may feature lime curd topped with mascarpone ice cream, smoky meringue and hazelnut cookie crumble.
