Village Voice's Description
The reclining statue of Saint Cono-who waves at diners from the top of the china cupboard-is your tip-off that the proprietors hail from the hilltop town of Teggiano, Italy. Amid a flock of predictable dishes, there are a few amazing ones. Penne all'Arrabiat, which smothers the pasta, is a hearty tomato sauce spiked with arugula and thick slices of the long green chile prized in the region. Stewed with sausage and white beans, a side of escarole makes a great shared appetizer. The restaurant is sometimes mobbed in the early evenings-so eat fashionably late.
Tips from foursquare
This place is out of business!
Looks like its just pizza. But the back room has some of the best most authentic pasta and Italian dishes around. And the prices are great!
The food here is great
Pizza is sort of weak. Pastas are delicious though!
