Postino

This wine bar offers an approachable list of vinos paired with casual fare, including bruschetta, panini, and small plates.

Bar Dough

Tuck into wood-fired pizzas and comforting pastas from chef Max Mackissock (formerly of the Squeaky Bean) at this casual gathering spot.

Cibo

Neapolitan-style pizzas get their authentic flavor from an Italian stone oven at this casual neighborhood restaurant, which also features hearty appetizers like braised short ribs over cheesy polenta.

Brik

This modern wine bar features Neapolitan pizzas baked in an imported oven, antipasti platters, and seasonal small plates like wood-fired Brussels sprouts and grilled artichoke. Don't miss the regional wine pairing dinners.

Grammy's Goodies

After years of working the festival circuit, Grammy's Goodies has hunkered down at a brick and mortar to continue dishing up Italian mainstays like lasagna, garlic knots, and Sicilian pizza. Don't leave without one of the sweet treats baked from the owner's grandmother's recipes. 

Lo Stella

Lo Stella is the sister restaurant to the acclaimed original of the same name in Portofino, Italy. Don't miss the authentic, ingredient-driven Italian dishes like the octopus and potato appetizer, house-made ravioli with walnut sauce, or desserts made from scratch.

Sarto's

This authentic Italian restaurant serves house-made pastas, soups, and more. Stop into Sarto’s Pantry—the adjacent market—for grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, and pizzas.

Café Mercato

The menu at this Lowry restaurant is based on Sicilian cuisine with house-made pastas and sausages. Enjoy wood-fired pizzas and dinners along with a glass of wine from an extensive list. Drop in on Sunday for brunch. 

Sforno Trattoria Romana

Like its sisters Bacco Trattoria and Parma Trattoria, Sforno serves hearty, family-style Roman fare. Try the house-made paperdalle bolognese or the bison ossobuco alla Romana, served with house-made gnocchi.
