Miami restaurateur Tom Billante has operated enough Italian chow houses to know what he's doing; his eateries, owned with partners and family, offer big, moderately priced menus featuring homemade pasta (agnolotti, veal-stuffed tortellini), wood-oven pizzas, grilled veal and pork chops, imaginatively composed salads, and good, cheap house Cabernet. Il Bellagio at CityPlace has flourished and expanded thanks to this formula and a knockout location directly facing the splashing fountain and live music stage. The patio seats 150, and it's a treat to be outdoors on a fine night with a plate of excellent fettuccini Alfredo or a grilled pork chop, mopping up the sauce with Bellagio's crusty bread. For dessert, Tiramisu is housemade, and Vesuvio cake, made with four variations on the theme of chocolate, is full of delicious antioxidants.
