This Italian sister to the stunningly successful Prime One Twelve succeeds as an all-purpose upscale dining venue. Patrons can begin by choosing from soups; salads; coal-oven pizzas; oysters; caviar; cocktails of shrimp, crab, or lobster; baked clams; fried bufala mozzarella; antipasti; and one big Kobe meatball with ricotta and a memorable marinara sauce. Entrées include the same selection and quality of char-grilled steaks as those at One Twelve, plus seafoods, pastas, and classics such as hot and sweet sausages, shrimp scampi, lobster fra diavolo, eggplant parmigiana, and some two dozen à la carte sides, including a whole section devoted to spuds. There's also Sinatra over the speakers, white linens on the tables, fine wines in the delicate stemware, and attentive service to go along with the solidly prepared traditional Italian fare. Prices are high, but that's no more surprising than Ol' Blue Eyes over the speakers.
