L’Artusi                  228 West 10th Street, New York, NY 10014

L’Artusi is owned by the same people who run Dell’ Anima  in West Village and L’Apicio in East Village. I blogged about those two places in the past and they are both fantastic Italian restaurants but I must say L’Artusi is all time my favorite. This place got a  great foods and sleek atmosphere. I always choose random entree and pasta dishes but my favorite apettizers are Scallop Crudo and Roasted wild mushrooms with fried egg. I don’t have any favorite pasta but they are known for fresh pasta dish so you should  order at least one pasta dish.

Ps – The place is two story restaurant so you should let them know which room you prefer when you make reservation. I like both upstair and downstair (^_^)

 Super Pink Lipstick Sunday at L’Apicio


I had great Sunday dinner at this modern Italian restaurant in the East Village. This large restaurant has sleek and minimalist deco. L’Apicio is run by same peoples who run Dell’ Anima and L’Artusi in West Village. L’Apicio is known for their pasta dishes as is Dell’Anima yet I didn’t order any pasta dishes this time ……I wasn’t in the mood for it. Guess what!!! When I blogged about Dell’ Anima in the past the polenta dish was the only dish that disappointed and I gave one heart rating but this time at L’Apicio I have to take it back!!! They serve four different kind of polenta Alla Spianatora and I had roasted mushroom and it was so yummy ~ Next time I will try their famous pasta dishes so stay tuned…… xoxo
