Marisi is an Italian spot where servers refold your napkin every time you get up and you don’t have to flag someone down when you’re ready for another drink. So yes, it’s good if you’re going to dinner with people who either said out loud or had the thought, “I want to be wined and dined,” but also works just as well for any standard group dinner. Start with some warm homemade focaccia before digging into any number of pasta dishes, like duck ragu pappardelle or tagliatelle with crab, and know their aperitif list is solid and they make their own limoncello.

Both the inside—with views of the round, gilded bar, and open kitchen—or the covered outdoor patio filled with plants are great places to be. They also have one of the better setups for a private dining room: Marisi’s Lemon Room seats up to 26 guests, is wrapped in citrus-printed wallpaper, and is ideal for that large work dinner where you’ll finally meet Jen from accounting.
