Owner Mario Nasab has been serving the Downtown community out of his ground-floor Italian restaurant for over 25 years, using the beauty of the French-revival building its housed in, The Willmore, to his full favor: Custom wood cabinetry for both bars—yes, there are two—along with chandeliers and old-school charm, La Traviata is one of the city’s most beautiful restaurants.
