Lina Stores

Being the local Italian deli destination since 1944, Lina Stores finally opened its own trattoria this summer, and it can hardly get more vintage: mint blue total look from floor to plates, deliciously retro liquor bar, black and white snaps on the walls… Get your fifties outfit and take a trip to the Riviera!

Perched on the bar marbled counter, start with a blood orange Bellini and get ready to tuck into their fresh pasta, handmade everyday for the past 74 years: classic schiaffoni with burrata, Datterini tomatoes, grilled pines and basil; lemony crab and chili spaghetti; comforting rabbit ragu pappardelle with rosemary and olives… Finish it off with a gigantic ricotta and pistachio cannolo.
