Bono Trattoria serves excellent Neapolitan pies and fresh pastas in a setting that works for everything from a friend hang, to a date, to dinner with your parents. It’s run by a couple of Italian guys, and it’s the kind of place where you could just as easily split a couple pizzas and bottles of wine at happy hour as you could go for a full-on multi-course dinner. They open up all the big windows in the summer so that it feels indoor/outdoor, and the space has a laid-back, really comfortable feel. This is our favorite place to eat Italian food in Harlem.
