    Level of service is lacking, however the pastas are amazing. Top recos: tagliatelle, cappelletti, and tortellini w/ duck mousse. The polenta dishes rock when in season and the charcuterie is a must.

    This is a great casual spot that won't break the bank. Grab a seat at the brunch bar for charcuterie that is hand sliced, cheese, salad, vino & a great view of the new kid on the block - Chef Stefan

    The Maple Mela may be my favorite cocktail in Soho right now. Order at the bar, watch them make it in a huuugggee wine glass thing. And order the Cappelletti pasta because you love delicious things.

    I think this is becoming my favorite Italian restaurant in the city! I love their pasta, and the porchetta roasted meat with roasted potatoes is to die for. Also don’t forget to get ice cream scoops!

    We squeezed in without reservation, and has a great time at the bar (witnessing the tapas guy do his magic). Amazing tortellini, though butter sauce a bit bland. Big pieces of parmesan as starter, wow

    The food is impeccable and the atmosphere is just right. With friendly staff and an informal air, the large wooden bar is the ideal place to grab a negroni, some antipasti, and saddle up for the night Read more

    We started off with the cheese and meat plate. For entree I had the pasta, tagliatelle, which is tossed in a bolognese sauce. All was good! Especially the bread that was paired with cheese plate.

    We started with the burrata (comes with butternut squash - so good) and the polipo, and shared the tagliatelle bolognese and the cappelletti with truffled ricotta. Would return to try everything else.

    Head chef Michael White has earned praise with his knack for taking home-style fare and providing a gourmet twist on classic Italian food. Osteria Morini's cocktails are also superb. Read more

    Michael White does it again! This spot isn't nearly as expensive as his other upscale restaurants, but the pasta is exceptional. Must order dishes: the lamb crostini, cappelletti, & any of the gelati.

    The pastas and everything classically Italian is teh shit. Mixed seafood grill is amazing, trout crostini is a sleeper hit. Say hi to the manager Nadine 💜. Pretty much can't go wrong here

    My best pro tip for dinner-for-two: skip the entres and order 3 pastas. Any three, no wait, make sure one of them is the Garganelli.

    ask for the pasta flight: you can pick any 3 pastas which is perfect because i am usually torn between the options. the garganelli with pancetta and peas is my favorite if i had to chose.

    Their erbazzone (spinach stuffed pastry with parmigiano mushroom sauce) was excellent! For pasta, get their tagliatelle (bolognese ragù & parmigiano). If you like truffles/tartufi, order cappelletti.

    A bit loud and crowded, and service was lacking. Food was good from bruschetta to halibut. Great to share dishes if not as hungry. Order wine and keep on the table or else you’ll never get a drink 😜

    It's hard to go wrong with a toothsome pasta filled with truffled mascarpone, in a silky rich butter sauce, but they do it best here. The cappelletti with a sprinkle of prosciutto is the way to go.

    The garganelli coated slightly w. truffle cream and prosciutto. Also try the tortilla stuffed with braised meats, and the gramigna w. crumbled pork sausage & creamy, black pepper-spiked tomato sauce.

    Get the garganelli - a steaming plate of rolled pasta quills gently doused with truffle butter and cream, made extra savory with bits of prosciutto and radicchio. Read more

    Gargellini is what brought this place to my attention. WOW! Was fantastic alongside the double raviolis. The meatballs are made from Proscuitto and mortadella!!!! Also, drink all the orange wine.

    The Cappelletti is incredible, absolutely my favorite dish. Try the tortellini brodo on a cold day. When they bring the spring menu back, you must try the spring onion pesto gnocchi!

    Pastas like the cappelletti stuffed with truffled mascarpone, the tagliatelle with ragu antica, and the stracci with braised wild mushrooms and rosemary oil, are the real showstoppers. Read more

    Great option if you need a soho brunch on short notice. The meat sides are a little too real for me, but eggs purgatorio is always good. Oh and the Parmesan gelato!

    All time favorite is the seafood salad and a close second is the stracci pasta with mushroom sauce. It's hard not to repeat them every time.

    Great atmosphere, attentive and knowledgeable staff, excellent food and decent prices. Crostini is a great way to start. Any ravioli or handmade, filled pasta are amazing. Rucola salad is nice too.

    Handmade pastas—frail ricotta gnocchi in light tomato cream, fat tortelli bundles oozing an absurdly rich mix of braised meats—are fantastic across the board. -TimeOut

    Grub Street off-menu dish: Brunch Sub. "Brunch diners at Michael White's Soho spot can get a sandwich of guanciale, a fried egg, and taleggio on a house-made bun. On the side: Pecorino potatoes."

    After living in Florence for 5 months, I have to say that this pasta comes the closest to what I had in Italy. Be sure to order the cappelletti.

    Two distinct packets of egg pasta fused together. One side houses a gamy mince of rabbit meat, the other the soft white cheese from Emilia-Romagna called squacquerone.

    Lots of bar-seating hate that I think is a bit unwarranted. The bar was cozier and less stuffy-family-style-dining than the main room. Cool, calm, attentive bartenders taboot! Two bar seats, please.
