    The fusilli with grilled octopus and bone marrow could be the best pasta dish I've ever had. This place is incredible. And if you can't get a table, the bar menu is solid and offers pasta dishes.

    Order the now-famous fusilli with octopus & bone marrow or the spaghetti with sea urchin and crab. For those that don't like fish, the aged sirloin steak with bone marrow panzanella. [Eater 38 Member]

    We enjoyed a most delicious evening at Marea. The food was amazing as well as the service. The place was jamming and the mood festive. We highly recommend. Try Bronzino for two.

    Best pasta in NYC. Expensive but has a 2 course lunch option for $45. Grilled octopus and lobster for appetizers are fantastic. For pasta, fusilli with bone marrow and octopus is a must.

    Amazing Italian seafood spot on the Southern end of Central Park. Amazing lunch prix fixe - the grilled octopus is a must! Marscapone panna cotta is also a unique treat.

    Ordered both the truffle garganellj and the (famous) fusilli, both delicious, service was very attentive. Oh and there’s a guy walking around serving bread... focaccia is all you need

    A full serving of the strozzapreti runs $33, but it comes with all the fixings: fresh lumps of jumbo crab and sea urchin, tossed in a delicate sauce and sprinkled with basil. Read more

    Excellent meal and experience! I'd highly recommend although you can probably skip the uni toast. I love uni toast but this one is good but can pass.

    The lobster burrata is one of my favourite appetizers ever - a perfect dish. Their famous fusilli with bone marrow and octopus is not overhyped either - it's definitely a must order!

    Get the ricci and astice to start (uni and lobster w/ burrata). The strozzapreti and the fusilli were both amazing pastas!

    They are wheelchair accessible and very kind towards my family, which is a huge plus. The food, though pricey, is excellent and was a great venue for my Dad's 70th bday. He ate everything. :-)

    Don't skip dessert. The budino al limone was as good as the pasta. (Plus it really looks like pasta!)

    It was the best decision to mix seafood and Italian when we ordered the Fusilli. The homemade pasta cooked al dente is perfectly accompanied by a rich bone marrow and braised octopus cooked tender.

    Get the polipo (braised octopus). That’s all you need to know. Probably the best octopus I have ever had!

    The fusilli with octopus was amazing. And they also have one of the best Bloody Mary's I've had in the city. I wasn't crazy about the primi piati choices, but eh.

    Marea highlights the best in seafood and Italian cuisine. The famed pastas, such as the Fusili with Octopus and Bone Marrow, and Garganelli with Crab, never disappoint.

    The house-made fusilli with bone marrow and baby octopus tentacles in an unctuous tomato ragout was a rich, rib-sticking contender. Sedanini swimming in a smoky cod-chowder sauce was another. -TimeOut

    The handmade pastas are their specialty - we tried the sea urchin one, the octopus bone marrow one, and the duck ragu and all of them were delicious. The service was also wonderful!

    Freshest seafood in the city! We had the crab and sea urchin pasta, the shrimp pancetta ravioli, and the branzino. Would recommend all three. Very expensive but worth the splurge ;)

    Their sea urchin dish is sooo delicious. I forgot the name of that dish but it's one of the most fresh uni that I ever had. It's a place worth trying.

    Sugarbush is a fantastic mix of bourbon and maple syrup. Combine with some foie gras and Hawaiian swordfish and leave happy, or have the lobster ravioli and leave euphoric.

    On any given visit, you’ll see famous faces (as well as “upper-generation” folks) at Michael White’s restaurant. Order fusilli with red wine-braised octopus and bone marrow.

    The Fusilli pasta dish lives up to the hype. In general it is hard to go wrong when you add fat to an already good tomato sauce to put it over the top.
