Specials are not very large and a bit too expensive for what you get.
After all these years, I still like to stop by here every so often – no need to go fancy, just a rigatoni plate and a Pellegrino will do.
Amazing view. Good music.
Penne vodka, highly recommend!
Can't go wrong with authentic old school Italian... NomNom
Workers are a riot! The space is covered in jokes with their signage. Food is good for a rake out joint. Complimentary bread is tasty.
The penne vodka with pancetta is delicious, but so is every other pasta on the menu.
Great lunch special. $9.95 for a big soup and a whole panini
Great simple menu. Good prices. Just 3 tables!
Every time I come here I don't think I could fall in love with it any more... But I do.
"No diet coke, no skim milk, no decaf coffee. Only good food." I approve.
This is just about the best goddamn place in SoHo. The only Italian place this side of little Italy that Italian is spoken — by staff and customers — more than English.
“No diet coke — no skim milk — no decaf coffee — only good food”
Lunch special is great. Always good pasta. Very small though, so don't bet on a seat. And don't stick around longer than you need to!
Affordable & quick. Great pasta selections in the neighborhood. Dining area is tiny - definitely better to go.
really good pasta $9-12
So amazing that you would think to be in Italy... Except when you look at the window ! Just order, then sit, then taste the food !
Chicky chicky parm parm!
standard, good Italian takeout.
Truly a hidden gem. Huge menu of delicious al dente pasta for $10-$12. And seriously AMAZING bread
The delivery took over an hour- was not pleased. I got eggplant parm w penne. They sent me a box w eggplant & another box of plain boiled penne. Weird lol. Saving grace: eggplant was hot and cheesy!
One of my favorite italian restaurants in the city. The place is small, so take out is a good idea.
I mean it's fine but not deserving of the best of cheap eats. Cute seating situation
Bring your Italian/English dictionary and enjoy some fresh pasta served perfectly al dente. Check the chalkboard for the speciale del giorno
This place is the fucking shit. They know how to cook some muthafucking pasta.
get a classic pasta dish you like and you won't be disappointed. only thing that would make this cozy inexpensive restaurant better would be byob
It is located on a right hand side from the Church, not next to it, as map suggests. As of October '14 they have 'B' sanitary rating, though, the dishes are delicious and worth risking.
Small place, practical approach, good food.
Their paninis keep me coming back.
Meat lasagna is great!!!
the sausage pappardelle: Bland and blah
Don't walk past this hole in the wall. Skip the whole "restaurant" idea and just order a plate of anything here - you won't be disappointed. Penne vodka in particular is top-notch.
Great authentic Italian food
TimeOut recommends the spaghetti bolognese.
Great pasta specials.
The best Italian takeout in all of manhattan. Super flavorful food and great specials.
Definitely the best pasta for take-out/delivery in NYC. Always look at the specials board.
Pasta like your (Italian) mamma would cook.
Legit lunch specials. Get a prosciutto panini and salad to go. p.s. don't ask for diet coke unless you want to be yelled at.
authentic Italian place! get the penne al pomodoro, it's spectacular.
Simply the best pasta in NYC for the money you spend. Disclaimer: I'm Italian! ;)
The tagliolini porcini mushroom in tomato cream sauce is heartwarmingly rich and intensely flavorful.
Go-to pasta spot nearby. Try the Rigatoni Prosciutto Di Parma.
