The chefs at this rustic Italian trattoria visit the local farmers’ market daily to bolster a menu that includes house mozzarella, crispy stone-fired pizzas and a signature Berkshire pork porchetta topped with onion jam and pork cracklings. The high ceilings hint at the building’s origins as a bank, and a patio features a fireplace and a bocce court.
