According to the Scoop and a subsequent press release, sleepy West Portal has a new place for Italian food: ~TRATTORIA DA VITTORIO~. The new restaurant, which is taking the place of the former Café for All Seasons, comes from Vittorio D’Urzo, whose résumé includes Piazza D’Angelo in Mill Valley and Locanda Positano and Limone in San Carlos. The new restaurant’s menu will take inspiration from Calabria, where D’Urzo hails from, with housemade pastas, short ribs Genovese, and gnocchi, plus Neapolitan pizzas. Chef Filippo Cannone (Acquapazza) and pizzaiolo Antonio Luongo will run the kitchen, and most main dishes will run less than $25. They’re aiming for a late April opening and will be open daily for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. 150 West Portal Ave. at Vicente, 650-504-7976.
