Fodor's Review

Squeeze into this postage-stamp-size eatery with its cream-colored lace curtains and true Italian soul—and come hungry, because chef Stuart Lane knows how to make pasta. It's made fresh daily and comes with such sauces and fillings as short rib ragu, eggplant and anchovies, or simply, as in their signature dish, dressed in butter and sage. Secondi options can range from braised pork belly with cabbage to stewed venison served over polenta. The dessert selections are lovely; a favorite is panna cotta with cardoon flower honey. With the friendly service and dynamite grappa, amaro, and an Italian-focused wine selection, you likely won't mind paying the price, even if the restaurant is loud and small. Reservations are recommended. For a well-crafted aperitif, start out next door at companion bar-eatery, Artusi (1535 14th Avenue).
