Village Voice's Description

In the knows-no-bounds sea of pasta peddlers in New York, how does yet another Italian restaurant stand out? Quite often it doesn't--but that doesn't mean it's a dud. The food at this traditional trattoria gone modern, while not mind-blowing, will happily feed you, and the space offers a quaint, unpretentious setting--rare in today's West Village. Start with an anchovy-spiked salad of shaved vegetables or the funky-in-a-good-way fried pig trotters before moving on to the excellent pea-and-prawn ravioli and the veal-plumped agnolotti--a good excuse to slaughter baby cows (besides your leather stilettos, that is).

    The menu includes house-cured meats & Italian cheeses, fish courses like charred octopus & cured sardines, fresh pastas with everything from pork ragout to braised duck.

  • Metromix on 02/28/11

    Owner Bobby Werhane serves up rustic Italian-inspired osteria dishes at this locale. Try the maccheroni w/pork ragu and goat cheese or a saltimbocca made w/trout.

    Try the Handmade Pasta w/ Lobster and spot it on Foodspotting!

  • Jen F. on 11/13/11

    Chocolate-cherry scones and pecan sticky buns baked in house every morning for brunch. Spasso bloody marys spicy as hell and made from scratch.
