One restaurant has been written up an infinite amount of times since its opening, one restaurant is a neighborhood beloved. One is downtown cool, one is uptown class. Both are fine choices for Italian cucina. Il Buco Alimentari has a small menu of small Roman dishes, while Bellu Blu has a larger more traditional menu of elegant, simple Italian fare, read off to you by Italian speaking waiters. Each has a unique ambience with suitable, thoughtful decor.
