    Chef Chris Cosentino is a high priest of guts. Once a year he sets aside two nights to do a special 5-course, all-gut menu. – Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations

    One of Incanto's more popular dishes is the bone marrow and beef tongue plate. You will not be disappointed with this order! As seen on Travel Channel’s Food Paradise: Manliest Restaurants 2.

    The “snout-to-tail” menu is not for the faint of heart! Are you as brave as a Borgia?

    You'll think you're back home in Italy with the comfy-casual decor and cooking that satisfies every craving. Pair your carbonara with a selection from the amazingly diverse selection of Italian wines.

    Adventurous dishes - tuna heart, pork shoulder, lamb neck... Everything was amazing and enjoyed one of the best pasta dishes I've had in the city (and it's not even Italian...)

    Invite some friends to share the Leg of Beast dinner. You'll scoop marrow from the beef shank's bones, partake in the tendon, and gnaw on the bone-in beef of the shank itself.

    The tuna bones (roasted tuna spine) were incredible. Also loved the roasted pig face with pappardelle.

    Lamb heart with burnt onions and fried mint was AMAZING. Loved every dish except crispy trotters. Wasn't the filling - that was great - it was the crusty dry coating. Nothing ventured nothing gained!

  • Brian G.

    Order halves of some of their dishes to get the full experience. Incredible place.

    Amazing food!!! Just make sure the waiter doesn't trick you into ordering more than you should... Otherwise, order the tuna heart spaghettini

    Try the "Hot Mess": pig trotters, foie gras, strawberries. Amazingly delicious! (but try it before July 1/foiemageddon). The foie ice cream with pistachios and cherries was also amazing.
