How does one walk past a window, where a focused sfoglina may be found busy twirling strands of beautiful busiate? You don't. You walk right in—to a world where pasta is king. This team is not out to revolutionize Italian food; instead, they are trying to correct some of its misinterpretations. And the results, while simple, are always delicious. Dishes feature some exceptional products, as seen in smoked eggplant with roasted peppers and ricotta salata. Focaccia makes a fine match to the latter, not unlike the guanciale-infused all'arrabbiata that adorns twists of casarecce.
The long and narrow room houses a smattering of brightly covered seats, a striking black-and-white tiled floors, and shelves full of oils, salts, and vino. What more can one ask for?
