From the street, its gaudy neon sign might first lead you to think it fits into the Italian-restaurant stereotype of spaghetti, meatballs and mobsters. But walk in, and you'll be immediately entranced--no matter where you sit, a romantic night is guaranteed. Think Lady and the Tramp, not Goodfellas. But don't expect standard Italian-heck, they don't even have spaghetti . . . or meatballs! Instead, you'll find influences of Thai, Indian and whatever else Persian-born owner Moe Shabani might put on the specials.
