Lonely Planet review

With its art-slung walls and rustic interior, this electric restaurant/wine bar combo is Hell's Kitchen's take on the classic Italian enoteca. Sit at the bar for vino and impromptu conversation, or book a table for a more private tête-à-tête. Fueling the conversation is a repertoire of beautifully prepared Italian dishes, from soulful zuppe (soups) to sublime meats and seafood mains.

Seafood stars in several pasta options, including a sublime spaghetti bottarga (with Sardinian tuna caviar and rape broccoli), while desserts include a decadent sgroppino (an 'adult smoothie' made with chamapagne, vodka, lemon, sorbet and mango cream).
