The old pasta depot (Lamberti's Cucina) has been impressively upgraded in concept and look. Splashed with deep-blue tiles and giant photos of Positano, the airy room evokes the Amalfi Coast. A good wine bar and an appealing small-plate menu of contemporary Italian flavors make for a smart pre-movie meal.
Mahi crudo; Positano Harvest; crabcake; N.Y. strip Bolognese; short rib; osso buco; veal parmesan; snapper and chips; swordfish; stuffed rigatoni.
The small list focuses on affordable regional Italian wines - whites from Campania, Nero d'Avola from Sicily - with many available by the quartino carafe.
