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.
  • 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
  • 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'!
  • 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.
  • At this point, Bestia may be best known as the downtown restaurant you can't get into, so you should probably plan your next dinner there a month in advance.
  • 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.
