The restaurant is located in Greenwich Village on Houston and MacDougal. Next time I'm craving old-school comforting Italian dishes, I'm definitely returning here. Prices are fair, with most of the pastas at around $10, and seafood and meat entrees running between $17 and $19.
Below are my favorites of everything we tasted:
Grilled marinated Spanish octopus, fresh caper berries, sundried tomatoes, rughetta
I am a huge fan of seafood, so I was happy to see this land on the table. Unbelievably tender and tasty, served with a light dressing.
Burrata, San Daniele proscuitto, truffle sauce, with crostini
The most silky and amazing burrata, it practically melts in your mouth. I didn't taste any truffle, but still found this appetizer to be very memorable even days later.
Braised Colorado lamb shank with creamy polenta
So I'm definitely not a lamb connoisseur, the gamey taste scares me, and I never order it when given a choice. This however, was so fantastic. The meat was cooked to perfection and fell off the bone with just a gentle nudge. The polenta was creamy and a delicious balance to the heavily (but superb!) sauced lamb.
Light, fluffy, wonderful.
