Fodor's Expert Review flour + water

$$ Mission District Italian Fodor's Choice

This handsome and boisterous hot spot with slate-gray walls, sturdy wooden tables, and a tiny bar is synonymous with pasta and also serves top-notch, blistery thin-crust Neapolitan pizzas, but the grand experience here is the seven-course pasta-tasting menu (extra charge for wine pairings). Pastas on both menus change constantly with the seasons, but the one standby is a meatless Taleggio scarpinocc with aged balsamic drizzled over the bow tie–shaped pasta.
