THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Il Radicchio Restaurant Review

: The name Roberto Donna has become synonymous in this town with Italian restaurants that run the gamut from ultra-chic (Galileo) to modest and casual, like the Il Radicchio group. The emphasis here is on hearty, peasant-ish fare that features pizzas (with loads of funky toppings, including radicchio), pasta dishes with homemade sauces, and spit-roasted chicken with roasted potatoes (a great take-home dish, for those on the run.) Appetizers include assorted bruschette and antipasti. A sure winner is the roasted peppers in anchovy sauce; it’s loaded with garlic, so be advised. It’s tempting to hang out here sipping wine and forking into a wedge of ricotta cheesecake, but at mealtimes, expect crowds and a bustle.
