When chef Chris Willis opened this spot near Harvard Square last summer, he won immediate fans for its fireplace-lit, plant-bedecked ambiance. It doesn’t hurt that Willis wrings such vivid flavors from great local produce and animal proteins. In particular, his housemade pastas (made from house-milled flour) really sing, from ricotta-stuffed cappelletti with English peas to more substantial lumache in gochuchang-accented Bolognese. There’s surprising sophistication hiding behind that winsome little neighborhood-joint facade.
