A small, clubby, dark-wood-paneled dining room sets off the brightly lit open kitchen and large wall of wines, making clear that they are the focal points of this Pacific Heights modern Italian restaurant.

The first thing you’ll notice as you enter LaRina Pastificio & Vino is the wall of artisanal vermouth and amaro behind the bar. “Some are so regional I didn’t even know they existed when I was in Italy,” explains Emilia-Romagna native Giulia Pelliccioni, who helms the eclectic, ...Read the full review
