At Vito's Ristorante, guests must fight the urge to walk into the walls. The restaurant’s gorgeous murals depict the alluring Italian countryside, serving eyes a visual feast of verdant fields, glassy waters, and marshmallow clouds. The aroma of chicken parmigiana and housemade marina sauce serenades olfactory senses from the kitchen, where chefs use time-honored culinary traditions to conjure up the Old-World flavors found in the veal marsala and linguine fra diavolo—spicy marinara over pasta, shrimp, and mussels. A new type of ravioli graces the menu every week, and past daily specials have included lamb chops with polenta and swordfish dressed in mango salsa and a musketeer hat. For a more urban, downtown vibe, Vito Ristorante’s V-Lounge hosts special events where guests can get their fill of libations and entertainment.

The Gallo Center for the Arts houses two state-of-the-art theaters that showcase an abundance of theater, music, dance, and lectures throughout the year. Colorful spins and stiletto-sharp swirls seize the stage in a dizzying display of Argentinean culture with Tango Buenos Aires, and advice aficionados will revel in the clever contemplations of Ann Landers successor Amy Dickinson, whose column is published in more than 200 newspapers nationwide. Music mavens, meanwhile, will bask in the artistic prowess of the Philharmonic of Poland, a powerful acoustic experience helmed by the wand of sonic sorcerer Boguslaw Dawidow that massages eardrums with works by Strauss, Lehar, and Mozart. More hands-on classical connoisseurs will be privy to a fully educational musical experience with Jeffrey Siegel's informative keyboard conversations, which are half witty lecture, half virtuosic performance, and half lesson in remedial fractions.
