Trattoria Dopo Teatro Restaurant Review

: Don't be fooled by the name (if you speak Italian, that is). One needn't go to Trattoria Dopo Teatro (or After Theater) after or even before the theater. After all, with servers constantly on the move over the Roman-like tile floor, eating here is sort of like theater in and of itself. And that's a good thing. After a chef and menu change, the focus is on northern Italy with more meaty fare. Very good tuna tartare (with a slight hint of spice) is a nice starter. Or skip right to the pasta course: pappardelle with hearty short rib and a touch of Barolo is a highlight. Gas-stove pizzas are decent enough. The hefty grilled sirloin is executed nicely but for a more complex taste strata, try the osso buco alla Milanese, a tender veal shank simmered in wine sauce and set atop saffron risotto. A daily selection of pastries and other dolci followed by a cup of espresso complete the experience. The wine list offers affordable bottles, as well as some nice selections by the glass.
