This Mackenzie Heights resto fills its 32 seats almost every night by being as reliable as Cal Ripken. The vibe has just the right amount of din—and the slight liquor service seems a small price to pay for atmosphere. The food is solid without being flashy; a bistecca a la Fiorentina is a nice hulking slab of grass-fed beef on a bed of arugula simple but timeless pastas like spaghetti with genoa salami and pecorino Romano are highly recommended. Going to the bathroom requires a Goodfellas- like trek through the kitchen, but here it just makes you feel like you’re one of the gang. Video.vanmag.com
