5:00-9:00 p.m. Tues.-Sun.
Cafe Bellisimo fills Union Citys pressing need for a good neighborhood bistro. The cuisine of Chef Federico Rodrigues is more Italian in function than form, but his asparagus with Gorgonzola fondue is dude-ishly good, the meats are tender and richly sauced, and his cartoccio -- linguine and seafood baked in a pouch -- is a stunner. Plus, the servers, mostly family members, are just plain nice.
