Upper West Siders adore this sleek Italian restaurant for it fresh seafood, which occupies most of its menu along with the raw bar (read: cheap oysters at happy hour). Veal meatballs, crab cakes, and pan-seared red snapper pay just as much attention to flavor as they do presentation and detail, and they only come second to the winding wine list, which includes lengthy descriptions so even the novices will know what to order.
