Cittanouva’s head chef is the well-known Kevin Penner, which lets you know the food is well-prepared. The menu “speaks” in Italian and there are dishes like fried artichokes (which you might order in Rome) or a pasta called malloreddus, served with sausage, saffron, and ricotta (which you might find in Sardinia). The thin-crust pizzas are first rate. Doors that fold back open the restaurant to a sidewalk patio and there’s a vine-covered patio at back. The decor is black and white and the fittings are Milan-elegantissimo. You are welcome to drop in for homemade gelato and espresso, or to sit at the bar and watch a game.
