    Mario Batali's take on Italian classics with surprisingly good prices and excellent service. Go on Tuesday and get the duck special. Amazing! You'll come back for more.

    so many excellent pastas, perhaps the best course of action is the pasta tasting menu (only $49!). pictured are the bucatini all'amatriciana and pork belly tortelloni; delicious

    Everything is delicious and well prepared but the sweet potato angolotti is a truffle lover's dream. The service for private parties is excellent. They were highly attentive.

    Batali-Bastianich's Italian trattoria is always busy, so make reservations in advance. The well-executed pastas, such as the spaghetti pomodoro, and plates (the pork belly!) are well worth the hassle.
  • Destination: Anywhere &.
    For antipasti-Carciofi Alla Giudia or lingua and teste from the meat tray. Ricotta gnocchi was amazing as was the bucatini all'americana. Sunday braciola was very soft and tender. For dessert tartufo

    Cozy Italian restaurant with homemade pastas and full body vinos. The orecchiette was some of the best I've had yet and the calamari was light and fresh with cucumbers and cantaloupe! 👌🏼

    Finally tried this place on a Thurs 10pm. A candle lit/dim ambiance was good. Warm prosciutto salad/ cacio e pepe/ carbonara were all very simple but flavorful. Tartufo was very rich/ hazelnut-y!!

    All about the pasta here. Skip the entrees. Go with the garganelli, and have a glass of Barolo. Get the tripe if they have it. Lots of wines from Bastianch. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Another Mario Batali restaurant, Lupa is a nice casual place with classic Italian dishes and a nice atmosphere. Try one of their pastas, we recommend the Ricotta Gnocchi.
  • Teresa E.
    Delicious Italian food, pasta was truly cooked al dente. The $25 menu is worth it and the staff are very friendly.

    If you' re looking for good italian food, this is the place. Cozy environment, excellent food! But make sure you book a table, the place gets crowded.

    The only thing you'll want after this delicious Italian food is its most popular desert. Lupa's tartufo is a baseball sized chocolate orb that comes beautifully decorated with nuts and chocate sauce. Read more

    They have a great white wine selection which we recommend pairing with their bavette cacao and pepe entrée. The formaggi cheese is just potent enough and not at all overwhelming

    This is one of Mario Batali's restaurants in NYC. The Spaghetti All'Amatriciana is delicious & so is the Ricotta Gnochi with Sausage and Fennel.

    The salad and pastas are amazing but the manager is the rudest person ever. Cacio e Pepe is fantastic.

    Do the Roman tasting menu and split a bottle of wine. Each pasta was delicious. The ravioli randomly stood out. You will leave stuffed!!

    The gnocchi is made here with ricotta rather than typical potato so makes for a creamier dreamier version!!
  • fluffy_passport 🎀
    Had the spinach salad with apple and crispy speck: tasty. Nice service, however, had to ask for seasoning like salt and balsamic because they weren't on the table, and then waited for 5 more minutes
  • Michael F.
    Absolutely phenomenal pasta, if you are really really hungry get the 5 pasta sampler, delicious, and lemon sorbet to end.

    Looking for a tasty red? Opt for little known teroldego grape (Trentino-Alto Adige); both are from the highly-regarded Rotaliano DOC. It offers gentle tannins and blackberry fruit. Salute!

    Our concierge William at Smyth says that the Braised Oxtail with Gnocchi alla Romana is sublime. Also the Spaghetti alla Carbonara is the best in the city.

    I don't love this place. always packed and service is rushed and sort of disinterested. food is tasty though, so if the other parts don't bother you, you may enjoy.

    Late night Roman menu (3 course prix fixe menu offered after 10pm--you have to ask for it) is a total steal after a long day exploring New York. Busy place, so just reserve online.
