Village Voice's Description
This may be the most authentic Tuscan restaurant in New York, with a menu similar to a roadside osteria you might find somewhere near, say, Cortona. The three-course menu runs from the usual sliced charcuterie to an heirloom tomato salad, to a novel zucchini carpaccio. The short pasta menu might include spaghetti with clams, a pappardelle with duck sauce, and spinach-and-cheese ravioli in a "sugo al povero" (poverty sauce), which resembles ground veal, but is really made with vegetable matter. For the main course, a chicken cooked under a brick or a Livornese-style branzino top the list. The owner and chef, Rita Sodi, owns a farm near Florence, from which the lovely olive oil used throughout the menu comes.
Tips from foursquare
This West Village gem run by Florence-born Rita Sodi features a seasonal menu that always has a few excellent pastas. If you're lucky, one option will be the lasagna with carciofi (artichokes).
This tiny, beautifully-designed West Village restaurant serves some of the city's best pastas & a small list of rustic Tuscan-style meat dishes. Make reservations well ahead of time. [Eater 38 Member]
Our favorite place to come for solid Cacio e Pepe. It's a simple dish, but they really know how to do it right here.
Amazing food. Get the lasagna, peas and tiramisu. Love Dumante (pistachio liquor) for dessert
