Due Forni

Mom said sharing is caring. And that’s exactly what you’ll want to do at this west-side hot spot, where lovers canoodle over panzanella salad, charred octopus and authentic thin pizzas (chewy Neapolitan or crispy Roman).

Everything can be enjoyed family-style, although after 8 p.m. the kid-friendly scene begins to give way to romantic lighting and bottles of wine.

Recently, owner Alex Taylor has started using those blazing-hot Cirigliano due forni (two ovens) to roast a variety of meats in addition to the Nueske bacon that chef Carlos Buscaglia spoons over creamy chocolate gelato for dessert. Remember: Nothing says “I love you” like bacon.

The Barrymore opened a few weeks ago at the Royal Resort, and it’s really the closest place to downtown that I’d call “plush modern.” There’s “hip” (The Beat Coffeehouse) and “Old Vegas” (Hugo’s Cellar), but this is a first: an elegant lounge with a white marble-topped bar and two gorgeous deco dining rooms, and featuring smart 21st- century cooking.
