Another tasty West Village Restaurant. This place is small, always packed, and has an open kitchen which adds to the buzz. I love the open kitchen’s because it adds to the fun of the dining experience.
They pride themselves on their pasta’s, so that’s what we got. I had the Pappardelle Integrale with duck ragu, pancetta, onion, carrots, rutabaga, asiago; very good. We also had the Tagliatelle alla bolognese, which hit the spot. Another solid gem to put in the rotation.
Same owners of L’Artusi…how can you go wrong?
