If you live or work near Canal Street, you’ve walked past this Italian spot’s red awning many times. You’ve probably said to yourself, “I wonder if that place is any good.” We can tell you that the Tuscan food here is, in fact, quite good. But the real secret of this place is its second-floor level, with large round tables situated next to big windows. When it’s nice outside, they open them up, and with the sun streaming in and a glass of wine in front of you, it almost feels like you’ve left New York. We like this place for a leisurely lunch, but it would work for most situations.
