Family-run northern Italian restaurant.

Our Review

Owner Giampaolo Sassi restored this gorgeous brownstone to its turn-of-the-century beauty, stripping and staining the building’s oak banisters and floors and building three semiprivate dining rooms and an inviting bar near the entrance. Giampaolo’s wife, Luisa Silvia Marani, is the executive chef for all locations, including Merlo la Trattoria and Merlo la Salumeria. Her menu is full of Bolognese specialties: handmade tagliatelli and other pastas, lamb shank, tarte di carciofi (artichoke tart with parsley and mortadella). The wine list is predominantly Italian.
