THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Luigino Restaurant Review

: The excitement in this spare, high-ceilinged, modern trattoria is in the open kitchen. In fact, if you sit up close to the action at the dining counter in front, you’ll enjoy both the aroma and the sight of Carmine Marzano’s cooking. Marzano turns out Italian dishes more characteristic of his grandmother’s generation than his own. His specialties include splendid slow-cooked, old-fashioned stews such as stufatino of baby goat and rabbit with black olives and potatoes. Start with half an order of pasta, then proceed directly to one of these---unless his rotisserie grilled boneless suckling pig is on the menu. If it is, you don’t even need to read the menu to choose your main course.
