Spina is a fresh Italian pasta house located in the East Village. Matthew Harrell's wine list is sure to please the most discerning palate.
Gluten free pasta. Great wine specifics
The price definitely does not meet the quality for the food. The wine was pricier and excellent. One and done for me at this place though. Low on my list for the neighborhood.
Really delicious pastas (summer ravioli is bomb) and half off bottles of wine over $60 on Sundays and Mondays! Hello, two bottle Mondays. 🍷
Dinner is great but try brunch too. When there for brunch get the egg yolk ravioli. No matter when you go the pastas are fresh and handmade.
This place is fucking fantastic. Seriously, delicious and quality food, knowledgeable staff, decent prices and an amazing menu. Go.
Home made pasta worth the trip to ave b
Looking for amazing homemade pasta, and don't want to spend a lot? Then this is your place! Order the Malloreddus Bolognese. Added bonus: your gluten-free friends can still enjoy the pasta too.
Veg trumps non-veg. Desserts are amazing.
This is the most underrated brunch in town. Good for groups.
The pear ravioli is one of the most interesting / most delicious pastas I've found in NYC. Strongly recommended.
I know the go-to is supposed the pasta & bruschetta, but the real hidden gem is the mussels that come in this chive/olive oil broth. Aannnndddd half-priced on Tuesdays thur Fri till 7:30pm!
Amazing homemade pasta, try the lamb orecchiette. Friendly staff and very knowledgeable about their great wines.
Incredible pastas and wine. Extremely friendly staff. Highly recommend.
The pasta is great here, and they run a "how to make your own pasta" class every Sunday afternoon (and I think you eat the pasta afterwards - sounds great!)
The entire wine list is 50% off (!!) on Sunday nights (even the fancy stuff)
Every bite better than the last. HIGHLY recommended!
Delicious homemade pasta. Great atmosphere. Half off bottles of wine on Sundays. And the homemade focaccia with truffle ricotta is perfect.
Highly recommended brunch in the East Village
The mussels were so good! Splurge the extra 2$ for the bread to dip in it
$12 bottles of Persecco at brunch!
Really small portions if you're hungry, so keep that in mind when ordering. Also not shy about letting you know they are ready to end their shift.
They can order all the homemade pastas as gluten-free if that's your jam.
Mussels and homemade pastas are delicious! Quaint little restaurant with awesome brunch deals.
Fresh pasta with some really authentic ingredients. Will come back soon.
Decent pasta and cheap prosecco :-)
They have a great wine list (50% off sun/mon). Their hanger steak (med/rare) melted in my mouth!
The Lamb Orichette will not even make you feel bad for our old pal Lamb Chop. You had me at truffle oil, not hello. Make sure you ask for a second helping of bread (otherwise you won't get one).
recommend the meatballs and the hanger steak or try the lamb orecchiette if you want to catch the fresh made pasta. They took great care of us on a friday night
It's nearly impossible to get a C health rating: your restaurant has to be filthy. But these guys managed to do it... and hide the rating behind a picture. Food was good, but kinda gross nonetheless.
The fried shrimp and calamari appetizer is awesome. As an entree, the saffron infused gnocchetti with a veal, beef and pork tomato ragú is the way to go. And, for dessert, do *not* miss the tiramisu.
Perfect spot for a low-key date or great night out with friends. Order the orecchiette with lamb and kale - you won't want to share.
5:30-8 PM, Tuesday-Friday; $3 draft beers, $6 wines by the glass; $5 meatballs, $5 mussels
Great wine list
Valpolicella is deliciously light
Was impressed by the food. The wait staff is also very kind. Cheesy decor, though.
Handmade pasta — you can watch them making it. Recos = polpettine di carne, fagottino, arugula insalate, malloreddus, orechiette, and agnolotti.
The muscles for happy hour are the best deal in town for $5
A great list overall. Two very nice white wines from tasty low production Piedmontese grapes: erbaluce & arneis (Ferrando and Vietti are great producers, resp.). Can't go wrong with either. Salute!
Two words-parsley oil. Yum.
Main courses are better than apps, service can be a bit more attentive
Vibrant East Village venue dedicated to the art of fresh pasta making. Enjoy any of the fresh pasta dishes and watch them come to life before their eyes at a pasta station in the center of the dining
Weekend brunch gets you unlimited $10 bottles of prossecco with food orders!
Handmade pasta is fine and all but the tiramisu is INSANE. Trust.
Yell at Sal
The hand-made pasta? To die for. But we also love this Avenue B gem because its walls showcase the works of a different local artist each month.
ask Matthew for wine recs. 1/2 off bottles on sun and Mon and great happy hour during the week. a great spot to dine!
