      I don't mean to be pedantic, but I think you're referring to the Spaghetti Carbonara available at Crispo's.

        any others?

        gotta throw eggplant @ babbo out there

    2. Lobster ravioli at il Cortile

      1. spaghetti w/ tomato and basil at L'Impero
        penne alla vodka at Destino
        humboldt fog and english pea risotto at Brasserie 8 1/2
        roman gnocchi at il Bagatto
        rigatoni bolognese at Per Lei

          i'd like to officially add that the best lasagna that i have ever had.....including my own is.................Za Za. simply outrageous!

            a new add...the carbonara at Crispo

        2. the gnocci at lil frankies and the ravioli at eatery

          1. Have yet to be so lucky as to try Batali's Babbo, which I heard is spectacular...but for the time being, I'd say the spaghetti in uni sauce at Basta Pasta--really quite a wonderful Japanese spin on pasta!

            Iike to eats.

              I was very disappointed with the uni pasta. I didn't feel the uni added anything to the boring pink sauce.
