Al di la Trattoria

Since 1999, Venetian-born Emiliano Coppa has been welcoming guests to his small Northern Italian restaurant. Coppa also busses tables and explains the versatile menu, mastered by his chef — and wife — Anna Klinger. To start with, try an appetizer like the fragrant fennel and grilled sardines, or the exquisite pastas like the poppy-seeded sweet beet ravioli, or brown-butter-slicked squash tortellini. As a second course, you might order the succulent polenta beneath braised rabbit with thyme and olive gravy, or the tender calves’ liver slivered over sweet and sour onions. Finish it off with an exquisite dessert such as the chocolate pear cake with bitter chocolate morsels. Don’t forget to study the impressive wine list. This tiny romantic locale is often packed and does not take reservations. Open Monday through Thursday from 6 pm to 10:30 pm, Friday from 6 pm to 11 pm, Saturday from 5:30 pm to 11 pm, and Sunday from 5 pm to 10 pm. It is also open for lunch 7 days a week 12 pm to 3 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 pm to 3:30 pm.
