Restivo Ristorante Restaurant Review

: Set on the ground floor a 19th-century brownstone building, this narrow, intimate---and reasonably priced---restaurant features a small bar and tables in the front room, and cozy tables in the back room. The filet mignon carpaccio, with or without hearts of palm, is a winning appetizer. Rigatoni Restivo is tossed with eggplant, capers, oregano and ricotta cheese, while the pollo Restivo is chicken breast sautéed with Cognac. There's a $7.95 lunch and a $9.95 brunch.
