Foursquare Tips

  • Step 1: Get the cacio e pepe frittelle as a starter. Step 2: Celebrate your incredible life choices.
  • Definitely get the squash app and mafaldini which is an al dente lovers dream. Skip the cauliflower (undercooked). Fritelle cacio e Pepe a good fried treat no doubt but foursquare overloving it
  • Some of the best Italian food I've had in the city for an incredibly decent price. Ball out and get a bottle of wine without breaking the bank.
  • Delicious! Not to miss: scallops, cacio e pepe frittelle, & hazelnut chocolate soft served gelato
  • Everything on the menu !
  • Truly the best bang for your buck out there. This is going to sound pretentious, but the scallops were exceptional, and the Mafaldini was one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. A must try
  • You can get gelato to go from the back entrance.
  • The rigatoni is an absolute standout but everything else here is also
  • Still weeping after that amazing Malfadini. Get that and Cacio e Pepe fritelle as app with the olive oil cake to finish.
  • Must try chestnut pistachio crostini
  • Obama's favorite Chef, Missy Robbins, is opening a fresh Italian restaurant in Brooklyn focusing on handmade pastas, seafood and meat.
  • Chili basil veal and mafaldini are ridiculously good.
  • Everything was amazing-food, service, drinks, decor.
  • The pasta is the main show, other dishes good but not groundbreaking.
  • Great wine, good pasta. Wasn't super impressed by the other dishes, and not sure overall it lives up to the hype. Beautiful space and good service!
  • It's pretty incredible what simple ingredients like breadcrumbs and Parmesan can do. These people are food gods. Solid order: artichoke and little gem, malfadini and rigatoni (packs some spice).
  • Go early to snag a bar seat (but still plan to wait for said bar seat. Don't worry, they have a cafe bar in the back). Awesome atmosphere with an open kitchen, and amazing energy.
  • Pastas, ambiance, anything with cheese is incredible
  • Everything is excellent here.
