When Villa Barone is full, which is often, the place can be deafeningly loud. This evening we discovered a solution: try to secure a table in the corner of the room. With no diners on two of the four sides we found we could actually hear each other speak. This remains our go-to casual neighborhood Italian restaurant. Bonus: BYOB helps keep the prices down.

Vitello Casandrio tops the veal with a pungent mixture of broccoli rabe, smoked mozzarella, and roasted peppers. It’s served in a light jus.
