THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bice Ristorante Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED A quick perusal of your neighborhood phonebook will likely yield numerous listings for Italian restaurants of the garden variety, and those operated by a seemingly endless array of very average Joes. Bice Ristorante is a Milan-based chain of upscale Italian eateries, and it brings a greater authenticity than most other chain-linked Italian operations. Located in the Tower City Center lifestyle complex, it is a polished affair: white-linen table dressings, striking frosted glass room dividers, gleaming tri-color hardwood floors, subdued lighting, and a white jacket-clad service staff. The kitchen is led by executive chef and native Italian Luigi Iannuario, who delivers a menu with a traditional Italian sensibility. However, much like the reserved d├ęcor, the food is often lacking excitement. The lunch and dinner menus feature an extensive list of soups, salads, sandwiches, pasta, fish, steaks and chops, including daily specials. A menu regular, the pappardelle al telefono features light and nicely al dente house-made pasta ribbons in a rich tomato cream sauce, punctuated by mozzarella and pungent basil. The minestrone is all too light, devoid of beans or pasta, yet the osso buco is classic Milanese done right: satisfyingly savory with generous moist, tender braised veal atop a fragrant saffron risotto. An Italian-centric, 200-plus-bottle wine list is available.
