The storefront at 420 King St. is deceiving. Once inside the narrow, cavern-like space, you'll notice it stretches back farther than you'd think. The low ceiling and old brick walls house a large collection of wine, giving the space a comforting ambiance. There's plenty of good food at Osteria La Bottiglia, too. A bruschetta sampler, marinated anchovies and parsley pesto, and smoked salmon carpaccio are all worthy appetizers, and the pasta is made in-house. The duck leg confit served with Italian sausage ravioli in a light cream sauce is a surefire winner. Next time you're looking for a place for a date night, this might be the spot. —Eric Doksa, Dish (Summer 2012)
