Village Voice's Description

This wonderful Italian restaurant extends our pasta frontiers by making gnocchi with polenta, rather than the usual potatoes, semolina, or bread crumbs, then saturates them with a scrumptious rabbit ragu, shot with black peppercorns like punctuation in a lengthy paragraph. The beet-dyed potato gnocchi called violette di parma are similarly excellent. There's also a flavorful squid salad, a wood-oven calzone bulging with fresh mozzarella, and a pork chop laved with rosemary-scented gravy. Best of all is the namesake pizza baci & abbracci ("hugs & kisses"), littered with caramelized onions and gobs of pancetta.

Tips from foursquare

    Eat in the backyard garden. The pizzas are baked authentic in a wood fired oven - not to be missed. Reasonable prices and it gets busy on weekends.

  • Instead of pizza, go for one of the calzones. - Inspector

    Red beet gnocchi... good but oh so bad

  • Nathan L. on 09/21/09

    Try the "pere e formaggio" appetizer, it's so good. It could also be eaten as a dessert.

  • We've selected this restaurant as a 2012 Bib Gourmand! For your chance to win a free dinner for 2, snap a pic & share on Twitter or Instagram with #BibNYC. Good luck! http://bit.ly/BibPhoto
