Brio is a warm and welcoming little restaurant which becomes crowded at peak dinner hours, due to its reputation for good food and fine service. Both Northern and Southern Italian dishes are well represented on the menu, and the desserts alone are worth a visit. The atmosphere is simple but not unappealing, with rattan chairs clustered about a terracotta floor inside. Outside there is pleasant sidewalk seating. Chicken with sausage, grilled lamb chops and duck a l'orange are popular entrees. For dessert, the tartuffo, tiramisu and cheesecake are delicious.
