The husband-and-wife team of Massimiliano (Massi) and Jennifer Boldrini have made this off-the-beaten-track, brick-and-steel former spice factory a destination for seasonally inspired northern Italian food, especially that of Boldrini’s native Emilia-Romagna. Ingredients shine brighter than techniques in such dishes as burrata salad with cream-filled mozzarella, house-made spinach ravioli, fusilli al polpio (slow-braised octopus ragu) and tonno alla griglia (grilled tuna) served with roasted fingerling potatoes and peppery wild arugula. Lunch Tue.–Fri., dinner Tues–Sat.
