    Homemade pasta plus homemade sauce equals ecstasy. I picked pappardelle with pomodoro (and a bottle of Pinot Noir, of course) but you can't make a mistake here.

    The penne alla vodka is surprisingly good (and cheaper than what you'd get at most Italian restaurants in NYC). If you're willing to shell out cash for an awesome drink, go for the Franklin Flower.

    Perfect place for brunch! There are cute outdoor tables in the back. The staff is ridiculously nice and very attentive. I got the spinach, goat cheese and roasted garlic frittata and it was perfect.

    Their homemade pasta is always delicious. Their panna cotta is better than their tiramisu. The sorbet serving size is gigantic. Nice wine selection. Good to take visiting family and out of town guests

    Cozy atmosphere, great food, perfect spot for a date. I got the penne a la vodka and our group split a bottle of red wine. This place is amazing, don't hesitate to go here if you can.

    Come for dinner, skip the brunch. Grandma's ragu or squid linguini. Start off with the Brooklyn seasonal on tap, sautéed calamari and some pate crostini. Sit at the front, it's much cooler.

    The Spaghetti al Limone is incredible! Add the veggies to it and it's even better. You won't be disappointed whether you get the homemade version pasta or the pre-packaged pasta version :)

    A cute neighborhood Italian joint that's a good—but by no means spectacular—option if you're craving pasta.

    Great food! The ravioli in vodka sauce is delicious. Best vodka sauce I've ever had. Food came out fast. Only downside is that the service is super crappy.

    Awesome happy hour, delicious drinks, and extremelyyyy friendly and considerate staff. Waiter even asked us at 5 mins to the end of happy hour if we wanted anything else before the deals ended.

    Absolutely incredible. Get the fresh buffalo mozzarella, tomato, basil antipasti. It's like NSA sexy-time. All pasta is fresh and the sauces slow-cooked. Tiramisu was delicious.

    Very fresh caprese salad. Spinach tagliatelle Alfredo with grilled chicken was awesome. Tiramisu is a perfect example of what it should be.

    Pasta over cooked...sauce was very flat.It was cheap but for similar price go over the road and have a great pizza at barbonchino. If you want great amazing italian for an even better price go 2 Otto

    The handmade pasta is so good that it has healing capabilities. It cured my limp and added two points to my IQ.

    The absolute best sautéed calamari I've ever had. Everything is delicious here - been for brunch and dinner. Very full, very happy :)

    Grab the wild mushroom frittatas to start out with. Then treat yourself to some thick stuffed and deep fried french toast. That's right it's deep fried! It's so delicious.

    Love brunch and dinner here. The wild boar and lamb ragu sauce over their handmade pastas are delicious!

    Grilled cheese was bomb. Tomato soup is just marinara sauce. Ravioli w burratta butter and sage was good to share

    The regular pasta is not vegan, but the gluten-free pasta (which is excellent) is. Also, surprisingly, the pesto is vegan!

    As a wise waiter told us "there's life before Grandma's Ragu, and then there's life after." I can probably say the same about the sautéed calamari and the fennel alla parmigiana. #impeccable

    Rotisserie Chicken is a win. Crisp skin, moist meat, great sauce and mashed potatoes. So good.

    Their bread was stale. Not much of a taste difference between the butternut squash and potato gnocchi. Black linguini with seafood is a winner, but if you want homemade pasta, order the pappardelle.

    The pastas are hefty portions so don't overdo it with the apps. (Or do. Life is short.)

    This place is awful. I for the first time sent a dish back-only to get a worse one! The ragu isn't a real ragu. It was more like Campbell's soup w a couple meat chunks. Butter sage was unrecognizable

    The apple tarte with vanilla gelato was the right amount of everything!
