website

Located inside a restored, turn-of-the-century pharmacy that retains its original signage, this moody little spot serves exceptional Tuscan food. Go for the super affordable pastas, great wines by the glass, and what might be the neighborhood's best aperol spritz. The house-made olive oil is so good—luckily, the restaurant sells it in bottles for diners to take home. This is the perfect spot for a date night—it's located just far enough from the subway that it's still a hidden gem, so you won't spend half of the night waiting for a table.
