The name is the same, but everything else has been revamped at this intimate little spot in Birmingham. Executive chef Francesco Apollonia, a native of Venice, turns out a nicely pared-down menu of such dishes as roasted quail with mushroom risotto, osso buco, and pan-seared scallops in a romantic setting. It’s a collaboration between proprietor Bob VanHellemont and restaurateurs Liz and Nino Cutraro. L Tue.-Fri. D Tue.-Sat.
