This tiny Berkeley storefront (from Rivoli’s Wendy Brucker and Roscoe Skipper) evokes the cheerful ambience and simple, soulful cookery of a Florentine trattoria. Rich, creamy mascarpone polenta, rustic egg noodles with braised duck ragout, and grilled pork loin with sweet and sour onions are Italian comfort food at its best, and the ahi tuna tartare and mushroom-fontina-white truffle oil pizza aren’t so bad either. Get the olive oil cake for dessert. Impressive all-Italian wine list.
