If out-of-town guests insist on visiting Little Italy, steer them toward charming Da Nico. The solid red-sauce fare includes spaghetti with a chunky bolognese and entrées like hearty veal chops and salmon, simply grilled and spritzed with lemon. Keep an eye on the brick oven in the restaurant"s foyer--crisp pizzas emerge from it, topped with sweet sauce and plenty of melted mozzarella. If that doesn"t quell your rumbling belly, the gratis plate of piping-hot zeppole just might.
