Ghibellina is that neighborhood Italian spot you find yourself always coming back to. The food - pizzas, pastas, and charcuterie - is straightforward, but very good. And the long leather booths, exposed brick, and open kitchen make the dining room a place where you’ll probably want to stay a while. Keep it in your back pocket for date night, dinner with your parents, and solo meals at the bar when you want to eat your pizza without talking to anyone.

Sotto

Sotto is one of the more low-key bars around 14th Street, and the live jazz and good cocktails make it a good place to end the night.
