In a hip neighborhood where trendy new restaurant are constantly opening and closing, Da Umberto has been a low-key staple since 1987. Owner Vittorio Assante, who took the restaurant over from his father Umberto, keeps the focus on traditional Tuscan cuisine. The pastas feature little flourishes that help them stand out from the crowd: leeks and baby artichokes strewn into the pappardelle and clams and pancetta mixed into the spaghetti. Entrees include meaty fare like the grilled T-bone veal chop with rosemary and seafood dishes like pan-browned salmon and roasted shrimp with shallots and baby tomatoes. The long wine list is divided by region of Italy, with a few spots set aside for California wines. As for décor, don't expect anything too hip; the look is relaxed trattoria, with white tablecloths, hardwood floors, wine racks and tasteful sketches on the walls.—Keith Wagstaff
