If you're looking for fresh, easy Italian in a central meeting spot, there's no better option than Vespaio. Sitting inside is like sitting in an Italian wine cellar, and the kitchen is open so you can see the preparatio of fresh pasta and desserts. The wood-fired pizzas are worth the wait and make a great sharing appetizer. If you're not opposed to it, the veal dishes are heavenly, and the seafood is handled lightly, never too heavy in sauce or cream. Allow the knowledgeable servers to recommend which wine will complement your meal. And don't forget to save room for decadent desserts, like the homemade tiramisu or chocolate torta.
