We really enjoyed the weekly tasting menu at the pan-Italian charmer Bellanico on a busy Saturday night. It was clear from the happy diners at tables near ours that their enjoyment was equal to ours. Both my partner and I went for the $40, four-course menu and $18 wine pairing, and everything was tasty. In particular she liked the lumache and mussels (note to Italian speakers – in this case lumache are not snails literally, but tube pasta shaped to resemble snails), and our flank steak was delicious and cooked as ordered. The dessert was a perfect salted caramel panna cotta, perhaps not a traditional dish but delish nonetheless. The wines were very good and went well with the dishes. They hailed from Spain, France and of course Italy. My only knock would be that the noise level was a bit elevated (as in many restaurants in Italy, Bellanico is all hard surfaces that reflect and even amplify the sound) and the tables, European-style, were quite close together. I imagine a weekday dinner would be a bit less hectic. Still, it was a delight, and service was tops.
