Uva Enoteca is a great pick when you’re in need of Italian comfort food in a casual setting and can deal with the aftermath of eating yourself into a catatonic state. It’s an easy weeknight option, and the kind of place you’ll generally be able to snag a last minute reservation. Also relevant here: they deliver. The meatballs are delicious, as is pretty much everything else on the menu. Gluten intolerance might be our generation’s bubonic plague but Uva is non-partisan in the war on gluten and offers really good GF pasta too.
