Prolific restaurateur Jerry Kleiner invades the 'burbs..
Oversized red chandeliers--a Kleiner decor staple--loom above this wood-trimmed dining room, which fills to capacity with dressed-up families digging into crisp-crusted pizzas topped with pungent taleggio and wild mushrooms. Warming cups of minestrone soup, accented with dollops of pesto, start things off on a hearty note. Pastas are a house specialty: Rabbit ragu crowns chewy penne, and hand-twisted, fresh spinach-filled tortelloni in sage-brown butter sauce shows swagger. Don't skip the plush Campari cheesecake for dessert. Vinos with funky names lean Italian, but there are about a dozen hip, seasonal cocktails, too.
