Village Voice's Description

The wood-oven pies alone are worth the price of admission, and a festive occasion might demand that you splurge on the pie covered with gold leaf. Though the gold has no flavor, the cheeses heaped on top of the well-browned discus do. A salad of arugula with cheese-coated olives also deserves plaudits, as does the signature pasta paccheri alla genovese, a dish introduced to Naples by Genoese merchants in the 17th century. The sauce for the tube-shaped pasta is flavored with onions and white wine and, in a stroke of pure genius, lacks tomato sauce. The well-windowed room encourages lingering.

Tips from foursquare

    The menu hedges its bets with plenty of pasta and antipasto. Taste: Scialatelli Frutti di Mare hand-rolled pasta with mussels, clams , shrimp, & calamari in a fresh cherry tomato sauce

    why spend a fortune at Frannys when this pizza is just as good? and the servers are fantastico!

  • Alexandra C. on 12/08/13

    Attentive and helpful staff and great food. Try the Caesar salad and classic pizzas for a fresh and delicious meal.

  • Benn G. on 11/27/12

    Seems like this place is underrated. Worth a look. Fresh pastas were great.

  • Samantha L. on 07/06/11

    Tartare di Tonno Antipasti is outstanding
