Best Pasta Bolognese?

I love good bolognese, but find it hard to find the straight-forward aromatic mixture of beef, veal, and pork I remember from Northern Italy. Any suggestions? Especially Upper East Side? Thx

  1. Had a wonderful Bolognese at Sfoglia.

      Not the very best, but always consistent and reliable, and I've been ordering it for 10 years... the Pasta Bolognese at Patsy's Pizzeria.

        Sfoglia is a wonderful dining experience and their Ragu is excellent. Please see photos

      2. Babbo serves my favorite bolognese sauce with pappardelle. But if you can't get down there, I'd try Paola's on E. 84th Street (I haven't had their bolognese, but I like everything else I've tried there)

        1. I was gonna say Sfoglia... incredible, the best I've ever had!

              Il Cortile, once great, now a tourist trap. This was our second worst meal this summer in NY.
              Swordfish arreganata was 1/4" thick. Shame on them.

              Worst: way under cooked Dover Sole (actually raw) at Del Posto.

            2. Oh, good question! I love it.

              If anyone has any ideas for downtown places that would be great too!
