Lauded by Zagat and appearing in several publications, Tresca serves an ever-evolving menu of upscale Italian cuisine in a two-story space reminiscent of a Tuscan villa. Chef Jake Pease offers up everything from handmade pastas to artisanal cheeses as well as steaks and local seafood. Signature dishes scribbling out their autographs include yellowfin-tuna tartare perched atop homemade flatbread and arugula ($17) and polpette di vitello, a collection of crispy veal meatballs accompanied by garlic and herb dipping sauces ($15). Tresca's own homemade steak sauce bedecks a gourmet slab of black Angus tenderloin served alongside roasted-garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus ($32). Seafood selections plucked from nearby shellfish orchards include spangle lobster and whitefish that's been simmered in saffron-tomato broth ($33).
