Taunt curtains that are gathered in the middle line the windows of Primola, a neighborhood Italian restaurant in the Upper East Side. In the main dining room, wall sconces cast a warm glow over clothed tables while regulars and celebrities (such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt) start with dishes like littleneck clams and mussels in a light broth. Patrons also rave about the veal selections, recommending the scaloppini al limone e capperi, which is veal served in a lemon and caper sauce.

Insider Tip:

If you don’t frequent the restaurant often, expect to be seated near the rear of the restaurant, along with the rest of the novices.
