Potenza Trattoria’s owners have preserved the original architectural details of the historic Woodward Building while incorporating an open kitchen and a fleet of modern chandeliers. For dinner, a salad of arugula, shaved fennel, and watermelon sliced or on the vine in a lemon vinaigrette ($9) evokes the lush Southern Italian town for which Potenza was named. In an entree of rigatoni al ragu della domenica, columns of rigatoni support a mélange of spicy fennel sausage, spare rib, braciole, and meatballs with ricotta cheese ($21). Lunch guests rest weary teeth atop pillowy ricotta dumplings and chanterelle mushrooms, elbow-to-elbow with broccoli, cippolini onions, and parmigiano reggiano in a sherry glaze ($20). Kalamata olives and orange segments bedeck the insalata di salmone’s grilled radicchio ($18).

Every day at Potenza, the aroma of fresh pastas, breads, desserts, and national constitutions wafts from the in-house bakery. Italian dishes sourced from the salumi counter and 6,000-pound pizza oven complement bottles from the wine shop.
