Foursquare Tips

  • There's heavy emphasis on house-cured meats, pizzas, and pastas, with unexpected and inspired flavors. The beverage program here, from cocktails to wine, is a hit, too. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Tartufo black truffle pizza and Cavatelli alla Norcina pasta (ricotta dumplings, more black truffles!) are THE best! Start with chicken liver crostino. For dessert? Try the chocolate tart!
  • A restaurant that makes beef-heart tartare seem not only possible but desirable; that makes a craveable specialty of pork boiled with cabbage.
  • Really loved this meal. Fantastic pasta, delicious calamari, and perfect bone marrow. But it's definitely a meat place. The branzino we had was tasty, but mealy in texture.
  • Chicken liver crostini was delish. I never liked chicken liver until I tried this dish. Cavatelli alla Norcina, drool!
  • Bestia is the best! Black truffle pizza, oxtail cocoa pasta, and the chocolate budino tart are all must-haves! The pig is also phenomenal. Get goin'!
  • Started with an old fashioned, then tried the veal tartare crostini, bone marrow, cavatelli alla norcina, with coffee & donuts for dessert....so satisfied. a better tip may be what is not good here
  • Fantastic. My friend insisted we try the bone marrow which is not normally my thing. Delish! Also recommend the octopus salad and the grilled meatballs. Pizza was disappointing.
  • The smoked mackerel crostino is essential.
  • Bone marrow & gizzards are such a treat!!
  • Housemade salumi is a must try!!!
  • Try to get seats facing the open kitchen and watch the magic happen
  • Chicken liver pate is out of this world. You'll want to lick the plate
  • Incredible food. Be adventurous with your ordering!
  • Everything! Especially the bone marrow!
  • Branzino is my must choice these days. With vegetable on top, this is the perfect dish to appreciate great foods both from ocean and land.
  • Bestia offers a range of quality Italian fare that encompasses pizza. The Margherita is a beauty, all bubbly mozz and bright tomato sauce, with fragrant basil on top.
  • Hard to book but can walk in and wait by drinking at terrace. Everything taste great but follow the reco. Bone marrow is great with spinach pasta under that.
  • Even on a Tuesday night the bar is four deep by 6:30, and reservations are a practical impossibility. Its not hard to see why.
  • Husband and wife team of chef Ori Menashe and pastry chef Genevieve Gergis keep their highly popular restaurant open until midnight on Friday and Saturday and 11 p.m. the rest of the week.
