They make their own pasta! The staff dotes on you, but not in a pushy way, more maternal. Great focaccia bread with ricotta cheese magic stuff. We had the chicken, with potatoes and brussels sprouts. The skin was crispy, savory and is what dreams are...More

Delicious food and great service! We had the most amazing Italian bread appetizer, crisp yet soft and flavorful fillet mignon, and yummy meatballs (as another appetizer for my daughter). The food is beyond compare!

Known for its home-made pastas, Spina has that and more. The PEI mussels (appetizer for the table) were delightfully flavored and enjoyed by all. Our group enjoyed the lamb orrechiette (a house favorite) and goat cheese gnocchi, as well as the oven roasted chicken. Service...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the

shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
