Cittanouva's style is as Italian as can be. The menu "speaks" in Italian and there are dishes like fried artichokes (which you might order in Rome) or pappardella with braised rabbit (which you might find in Tuscany). Doors that fold back open the restaurant to a sidewalk patio and there's a vine-covered patio at back. The decor is black and white and the fittings are Milan-elegantissimo. Cittanuova's thin-crust pizzas are first rate. Kevin Penner, the head chef, is assisted by Francisco Mones and you can count on food that is well-prepared. Those who don't want a full meal can drop in, cafe-style, for homemade gelato and espresso, or sit at the bar to watch a game.
