Fabio Camardi, a onetime partner at Cacio e Vino, is behind this 75-seat trattoria in Hell's Kitchen. The name's pretty spot-on: Camardi plans to eventually open an in-house marketplace to sell his own line of olive oil, pasta and even ceramics. (A mini-Batali! The reality-show pitch shouldn't be far behind.) The menu's Southern Italian—Camardi is from Puglia, while his two chefs are from Sardinia and Sicily—so expect stuff like orecchiette with broccoli rabe and anchovies, and Tiella Pugliese (a paella-like casserole with rice, potatoes and mussels). Not too shabby, these prices: Pasta and entrees go for about $15, while wines by the glass—the wine list spans Piedmont to Sicily—start at $7.
