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 (^_^)
