Located inside the Radisson Blu Aqua, this upscale restaurant focuses on Italian classics with a modern, urban twist. Chef Christian Fantoni has created a menu that celebrates clean, simple flavors and Italian hospitality, starting with the complimentary cerignola olives and Grand Padano cheese provided when you arrive. On the menu you’ll find a variety of breads including Panne Carasau, an imported crisp flatbread, and several focaccias. Starters include fresh mozzarella di bufala and charcuterie carved tableside. For main dishes, expect coal-fired pizzas, osso bucco Milanese, braised rabbit and fresh gnocchi with braised oxtail. This hotel spot caters to those on the go; a lunch special is guaranteed to take less than 45 minutes and the after-work crowd munches on stuzzichini (or “little bites”) at the bar. Grab a table near the window overlooking Columbus Drive and choose from a contemporary cocktail or from 10 wines by the glass and more than 100 by the bottle.
