A Voce Restaurant Review

: Once the domain of both Missy Robbins and Andrew Carmellini, this dazzle-meets-rustic restaurant on Madison Square Park remains popular no matter who is (or is not) in the kitchen. The menu sticks mostly to traditional fare, with some hits and misses. Roasted sardines could use more lemon and, while the bread-crumb crust adds a nice texture, it only takes away from the freshness of the fish. The thinly sliced octopus, however, is simple and nicely dressed. Mushroom ravioli, wading in an extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with prosciutto and wild arugula, bursts with flavor; the oxtail rag├╣ tagliatelle, however, falls into blandness. The wine list is a bright spot. There are several good, affordable wines and a massive selection of greatest hits from France and Italy.
