Exposed brick walls stand behind waiters bearing specialty pizza straight from the oven. Liquor and beer bottles stand side-by-side against the bar like infantry awaiting orders. Steam rises from tables where plates have newly arrived, housing veal, chicken, and seafood dishes in pools of savory wine sauce. After spooling pasta or two-handing a calzone, patrons can teach a fork to multitask with a sweet tag-team of tiramisu and cheesecake, or question a server about which wine to pair with their Diet Coke.
