Tips

  • Clams Casino pasta = it's like Jesus himself dreamed up this dish just for me. (pastas are perfect size to split 3 with 2 people btw)
  • Carciofi. Enough said. It's mouthwatering, creamy, and the perfect balance of artichoke and a light, creamy sauce. Another must- have is the eggplant bruschetta. Trendy yet homey ambiance-- loved it
  • Ryan Sutton's 2 star review: "Fiore di carciofi are what lasagna would taste like if it were shaped like a pinwheel and prepared by a chef with a Michelin-star."
  • Step 1: Sit at the downstairs bar (get there early to avoid a crowd). Step 2: Order a cocktail & pasta. Step 3: Repeat step 2.
  • This restaurant is my new favorite in NoHo and they are innovative. This is Italian Benedict made of special tomato sauce unlike tradition egg Benedict made of hollandaise sauce.
  • The breakfast spaghetti will change your life.
  • I'm probably going to be having dreams about the clam spaghetti and lamb bucatini. So good.
  • Tough to snag a table but super easy to sit at the bar. I recommend: burrata bruschetta, stuffed meatballs, tagliolini. The pastas+apps are much bigger than you'd expect so no need to order entrees!
  • Order plates to share - don't miss the sweet pea salad and the ravioli! Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check.
  • Affogato. It's not on the dessert menu, but if you ask nicely...
  • The menu has rustic house-made pastas and daily specials, like veal tails with polenta, and hanger steak with salsa verde. Make sure to get the affogato for dessert.
  • Excellent pastas! Service was a little off but I'll give them a pass since they just opened
  • Squid Ink Campanelle is to die for
  • Love this place for great apps/pasta. Don't miss apps: ricotta bruschetta, rice balls, stuffed meatballs. Skip the calamari. Don't miss pastas: garganelli, tagliatelle, fiore de carciofi. Panna cotta.
  • Bloody for brunch.. Do it
  • Lively atmosphere, great spot to catch up with a friend over small plates. Get the squid ink campanelle and short rib raviolini. The burrata is fresh and creamy. Split a bottle of wine and enjoy!
  • vegetarians: macaroni and rigatoni
  • Clams spaghetti is amazing. Get it.
  • campanelle pasta is crustiness heaven + fiore di carciofi is tangy and yummy, the antipasti and desserts are super good too! the negatives: such a loud place + the pestering waiters are a bit too much
  • Seafood antipasto were delicious and the spaghettu very well cooked. Ask for a limoncello with lemon ice cream for dessert!
