    A classy oasis tucked into a charmingly tiny space, I Sodi is a deeply under-hyped restaurant. The food is simple and perfect, from the tartar to the life-changing lasagna. Listen up for the specials.

    [Restaurant/Bar] Our favorite Italian, hands down - Tuscan trucker food the way it should be. Try the pepper spaghetti. Book well in advance or try to get a seat at the bar.

    This tiny, beautifully-designed West Village restaurant serves some of the city's best pastas & a small list of rustic Tuscan-style meat dishes. Make reservations well ahead of time. [Eater 38 Member]

    MICHAEL MINARIK: "Best Italian food I've had in the city. Their olive oil is shipped in from the owner’s farm in Tuscany & is a meal in and of itself. I especially love going here in the wintertime." Read more

    Amazing ingredient and no gimmicks approach makes this place a true NYC gem. Negroni, steak tartare and lasagna were both excellent. Cacio e Pepe next time!

    Simple & elegant but tiny. Come with a reservation or else you'll be waiting a bit. Great pastas (chestnut tortelli & paccheri with meat sauce. Lots of negroni cocktails & decent Brunellos

    Take either the Rigatoni strascicati or the cacio e Pepe; great selection of wines; fantastic service ... Great place to eat at the bar by yourself or in good company

    This West Village gem run by Florence-born Rita Sodi features a seasonal menu that always has a few excellent pastas. If you're lucky, one option will be the lasagna with carciofi (artichokes). Read more

    Simple, elegant Italian executed very well. Still daze about the creamy, punchy cacio e pepe and airy, show-stealing tiramisu. Perfect 3rd date.

    Dear Olvie Garden -- please send your food artists to this place instead of your Tuscan kitchen. This place is the real deal. #1 Italian joint in NYC

    Our favorite place to come for solid Cacio e Pepe. It's a simple dish, but they really know how to do it right here.

    Some of the best Italian food I've had in NYC. Do not miss the tartare, the artichoke salad, and the lasagna.

    Cacio e pepe!!!! this is my all time favorite place.. Small and cozy, nothing too fancy but the pasta tastes the best.

    Everything was on the salty side. This ruined the cacio e pepe a bit but would still recommend the lasagna and fried artichokes.

    This restaurant has gotten a lot of hype lately but I thought it was overrated. I was told to order the cacio e Pepe and the steak both were too salty and the fried artichokes too.

    I'm a fan of the sage martini. Their raw vegetables with olive oil is not a rip-off! Delicious. But the homemade pasta is what is worth a return.
