THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chianti Restaurant Review

: When this restaurant says large plates, it’s no joke! Platters are intended to be shared between two people, and when large parties dine here, swapping and sampling are encouraged. The chef is a native of Southern Italy, and his menu is very similar to what you might see in a family-owned café on the Amalfi coast. Signature dishes include linguine San Giuseppe (a vegetarian dish in a garlic-oil sauce) and chicken arrollato (stuffed chicken breast in white wine sauce). For dessert, try the molten chocolate cake à la mode---the regulars have nicknamed it the OhmiGAWD Cake.
