Foursquare Tips

  • The pappardelle with whey braised lamb was incredible
  • Dont miss the pasta. Cicalas sweet porcini-and-mascarpone-stuffed chestnut quadrucci are the equal of anything at Le Virt, and so is his savory pappardelle.
  • Favorite place on the avenue..great pizza great apps great desert
  • This turned out to be quite a find! The pasta and pizza choices are excellent! I'd recommend getting a seat at the bar downstairs. Service is very good!
  • all the anti-pasti was too salty.
  • If you cant get enough of a simple classic, stop in at Brigantessa for its Margherita Pizza with house made mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes and basil.

  • On the weekend of the papal visit, this pizzeria will offer Pope Hat Pasta a pasta dish with beet and sheeps milk ricotta plus specials on artisanal draft Italian beer and Peroni Nastro Azzurro.
  • Pizza and pasta were both delicious. The Regina is a pizza margherita on 'roids. They do some other crazy pizzas as well.
  • Secret clam pizza.
  • Knowledgeable staff, great service, delicious food. Try the rustichella black spaghetti with octopus or the chickpea pappardelle with lamb.
  • What a treat! Everything here is absolutely delicious. Gnocchi with oxtail ragu is unlike anything I've ever eaten before. Can't go wrong with the small veggie dishes like grilled ramps & burrata.
