If you spend time on the Upper East Side, this Italian restaurant is one that you should be aware of for casual dates or meals with your family. In the summertime, they set up sidewalk seating with enough distance from the pedestrians going to New York Sports Club or walking their goldendoodles on 3rd Avenue. Aside from the thin-crust pizzas, salads, and pastas on the menu, the complimentary garlic focaccia might be better than anything else here.
