Eating late doesn’t always mean heading for the closest taco stand (we still love you, Hardbodies taco truck). Sometimes you want something more … refined. Enter Barbaro, which stays open to midnight Sunday through Thursday and until 1 a.m. on weekends. Sure, you can get an excellent pie on delicious dough with stellar topping combinations late into the evening, but don’t miss out on the small plates such as the charred asparagus with crème fraiche and a salsa rossa perfect for dipping any leftover crusts. If your sweet tooth strikes at the midnight hour, you could do much worse than ordering the ricotta zeppole, an order of deep-fried dough balls with butterscotch and sea salt. Now, that’s amore.
