Tre Scalini Restaurant Review

: With the mother/daughter team of Franca DiRenzo and Francesca Kauffman at the stove, expect Abruzzi-inspired Italian prepared with love. Portions are ample for sharing---try the crispy grilled polenta with broccoli rabe, or if you’re lucky, the special of eggplant Napolitano dusted with Parmesan cheese. Huge, fat mussels are kissed by a tomato broth, and Talluto's spaghetti alla chitarra benefits from a harmonious bolognese. You get lots of mushrooms with the juicy veal chop, while tiny quail are touched with just a hint of fresh rosemary and sage. Bring a warming bottle of Italian red, and dig in. Leave room for the tiramisu, sorbets and ice creams.
