Chef-owner Massimiliano Boldrini grew up in Emilia-Romagna, the Italian region that invented pasta. Naturally, the many house-made shapes are fantastic, framed with the kind of radical simplicity that makes a dish like tubes with tomato sauce and grilled sardines taste primordial. Boldrini is fussy about his seafood — it’s usually local and consistently delicious. The semi-hidden space he’s carved out feels casual for a restaurant with such serious chops, but hey, it’s all part of the charm.
