Locanda Vini e Olli

We dig Frankie’s 457 Spuntino as much as the next guy, but for classy Tuscan fare (with a few risk-taking riffs), it’s hard to find fault with the 11-year-old Clinton Hill favorite, Locanda Vini e Olli—and a lot easier to get a seat on a Friday night. Situated in a glorious converted townhouse that still bears the hallmarks of the 130-year-old pharmacy that came before it, the trattoria turns out unimpeachable primi (saffron pasta “con la sarde” with sardines, raisins, dill and pine nuts, papardelle with braised rabbit), secondi (branzino with oven braised fennel, pork shoulder with cannellini beans), and cheeky antipasti (beef tongue salmistrata, octopus soppresata and tuna salami).

129 Gates Ave, Clinton Hill
