Since 1988, Efisio Farris has been serving upscale Italian while introducing the city to the food of his homeland, Sardinia. The setting is Galleria chic, as are the patrons. Each of the striking dining rooms makes you feel like you're eating in a Tuscan village. The Sardinian specialties at Arcodoro are noted on the menu, like the sa fregola, or clam soup; the gnocchetti sardi al cinghiale, a ragu of wild boar; or the seadas al miele, puffed pastry stuffed with cheese covered in honey. A wood-burning oven is used for the pizzas and steaks. Traditional Italian pasta dishes round out the menu.
