Cuisine:Italian. Price: $$$. Location: .

Wood-fired pizzas, salumi and handmade pastas are spun into innovative, Italian-inspired small plates at yet another bustling venture from Boston’s most prized chef, Ken Oringer. The restaurant seats just about 40, so don’t show up too hungry, because there’s bound to be a wait for walk-ins, and reservations are difficult to lock down. Menu items are reasonably priced, and often feature unexpected bits and pieces of animals. Make a Reservation.
