Franina

Fine Italian Cuisine

The atmosphere of this cozy, classy restaurant goes beyond any attempt to emulate an Italian restaurant, as the bunting- styled drapery, lightly yellow-tinged walls and oil paintings make this place seem as if stolen from a weathered postcard circa the early 1900s.

The menu is dedicated to the foods found in places like Napoli, Rome and Sicily—with a number of seafood-based antipasi set for starting purposes. Pastas like spaghetti, cavatelli, ravioli and tortelloni are also possibilities—while the entrées are a list of meats and sh prepared with air—such
as a dry-aged, grilled rib eye steak under green peppercorn, stuffed organic breast of chicken and red snapper served oreganata.

Menu

Boasting a wide range of traditional Italian dishes with a modern twist Franina pairs each menu item with a perfectly paired wine. Franina’s wine list is roughly 300 labels, and 14,000 bottles kept safely in their wine cellar.
