Excellent Pastas - I'd skip the main course, and just order double pasta course. Don't miss the gnochi - rarely found made correctly stateside. Also, do not pass on the ricotta spread for the home made foccacia. You will diet tomorrow. Desserts are lovely!!! Expansive...More

Great fresh pasta with interesting combos of seasonal sauces cooked perfectly. Very good service without being in your face all the time. Wine list is quite extensive but many are quite expensive. Go on a Sunday or Monday for the 1/2 price wine deal which...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still

shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
