Best Pasta Bolognese?

Ron Gallen Sep 4, 2007 04:51 PM

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

    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

        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)

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

            Il Cortile is awesome.

              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.

              Oh, good question! I love it.

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

                Don't know if I have a BEST, but Vespa has some great pasta dishes.

                  UES, you can't go wrong with Il Forno, they make a great one.
