Melograno is one of those rare places that works just as well for a date night as it does a big group dinner. The Italian BYOB feels small but can accommodate way more people than you’d expect - like the cab of a Ford F-150. The menu is full of Roman dishes that are easy to share, from big plates of wild boar pappardelle and Roman pinsas to charcuterie platters.
