Pasta & wood-fired Italian cooking
Italian · Williamsburg · $$$
The Zagat Review
Missy Robbins’ “mind-blowing” housemade pastas and wood-fired entrees are declared “exactly what Italian food should be” at this “outstanding” arrival to the Williamsburg dining scene; the “spare-but-warm” space – complete with “lovely open kitchen” , “sweeping bar” and plenty of “buzz” – is overseen by an “excellent” staff, so the only real problem is “getting a reservation.”

I've had a lot of meals at Italian restaurants, in America and in Italy, and thought this was the best. The chef did to this cuisine what Nobu did to Japanese food, elevating it above what it had been, making it original yet the service and setting are casual and professional. It all came together perfectly. The pastas and everything else we had were terrific. The menu is large, contains things you see elsewhere and others you don't. I can't wait to go back.

This is a really cool spot. My table tried many of the items on the menu and we had no complaints. All of the food was delicious and plated well. The Chef was kind enough to let a Chef at my table discuss culinary things with her. Really enjoyed the drink selection!! I tried a Pink IPA from my family’s region in Italy which made me happy! Looking forward to going back to dine alfresco when the weather is warmer!!

Bartenders are excellent to detail. Will examine each wine glass and clean if needed before serving. Full of recommendations and friendly. Food is amazing not over priced. I got the scallops and are 2 big size for $15 but serve as a good appetizer. The muscles are amazing. And the gnocchi is delicious. Only thing I was not impressed about was the front door Host. Did not smile or was not friendly, seemed bothered to seat me. Might have been because I was dressed super casual (no clue) but besides that this place is great.
