This cozy little Italian trattoria, tucked away on 5th Street in the East Village, has a traditional feel. Crisp white tablecloths are warmly lit by hanging chandeliers in a dining room lined with exposed brick and a pressed-tin ceiling. The wine list is a particular point of pride for owner Sami Kader, who learned his craft at the Four Seasons and La Cote Basque; browsing through it can feel like reading a novel. Hundreds of bottles from every winemaking region in the world are listed, ranging in price from under $30 to more than $400, with plenty of wines available by the glass and half-bottle. A wood-burning oven churns out pizzas while entrees include everything from roasted pork chops and baby rack of lamb to pepper-crusted tuna and pan-seared monkfish. Stop in on Sundays from 5pm-7pm to take advantage of the $29 prix fixe menu, which includes an appetizer, main dish and dessert.—Keith Wagstaff
