This neighborhood gem is known for simple-but-rustic pastas (like orecchiette with spicy sausage), pizzas (including namesake Giacomino with fennel sausage, castlevetrano olives, stracciatella, and truffle pureé), classic antipasti (like escarole and beans) and, in true Italian form: wine by the quartino. Pisolino is Italian for “nap” (it’s the midday norm in Italy and chef is a big fan), but you don’t want to sleep through dessert with choices like chocolate tiramisu and butterscotch budino. Pro tip: get ‘em all.
