Best Casual Italian Fare

La Traviata Italian Bistro

Just a short walk from any of our newest skyscrapers, La Traviata is truly a diamond amid the downtown rough. And much like the opera from which it takes its name, this restaurant is a romance of Italian cuisine built upon beauty and tragedy. We recommend the subtle seduction of the toasted hazelnut and pecorino cheese in their Insalata Mista and the verbose declaration of love through tomato sauce and meat in their Chicken Parmesan. The tragedy comes once you realize this meal has ended.
