Village Voice's Description

This wonderful Italian restaurant extends our pasta frontiers by making gnocchi with polenta, rather than the usual potatoes, semolina, or bread crumbs, then saturates them with a scrumptious rabbit ragu, shot with black peppercorns like punctuation in a lengthy paragraph.

There's also a flavorful squid salad, a wood-oven calzone bulging with fresh mozzarella, and a pork chop laved with rosemary-scented gravy. Best of all is the namesake pizza baci & abbracci ("hugs & kisses"), littered with caramelized onions and gobs of pancetta.

    Eat in the backyard garden. The pizzas are baked authentic in a wood fired oven - not to be missed. Reasonable prices and it gets busy on weekends.

    Try the "pere e formaggio" appetizer, it's so good. It could also be eaten as a dessert.

    Red beet gnocchi... good but oh so bad
