    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.

    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.

    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]

    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.

    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
