Pastas include spaghetti and bianco pomodoro for $13; rigatoni carbonara with guanciale, egg yolk, and grana padana for $17; bucatini all’amatraciana for $16; and lasagna verde with spinach, chard, mushrooms, fonduta, and a basil bechamel for $21. Pizza such as a margherita for $9, lamb sausage with chopped clams for $18, and a bacon with fontina, caramelized onion, and egg for $14 are made with a sourdough crust. Main courses such as Mary’s chicken “under a brick” and panzanella budino goes for $24 while porchetta with sprouting broccoli comes in limited quantities for $25.

A weekday lunch and weekend brunch are coming soon.

The restaurant has room for 50 diners with patio seating at the front and rear opening this spring.
