Italian in Jordaan & the West

Classy Toscanini bakes its own bread, rolls its own pasta and pours Italian wines. The weekly-changing dishes that grace the white tablecloths might include crêpes stuffed with ricotta and nettle or veal with sweetbread and mushroom sauce. Desserts such as layered Palermo chocolate cake promise to weaken even the fiercest of dietary resolves. Book ahead, even on weeknights.
