True Bolognese

Does anyone where I can go to find a truly authentic, and great Bolognese sauce. Not just red sauce with ground beef. I hear babbo does a great one, any others, maybe at a spot a little easier to get into.

  1. Tarry Lodge in Port Chester is Mario's place. Bolognese is fantastic and if you are willing to eat early, much easier to get in to.

        She posted an alternate Batali restaurant in the event the OP cannot get a res at Babbo. Port Chester is in Westchester county just short of the Fairfield border. Easily accessible by Metro North if you're not driving.

    1. Felidia and del posto make a nice one too....

      1. Po (which Batali used to own) does a really great one with spinach tagliatelle. And cheap(er) too!

          Cipriani Downtown makes an excellent and authentic Bolognese sauce, but it's like a million dollars.

        2. Try Via Emilia, 47 E. 21st Street.

          1. Bianca has a bolognese with fresh tagliatele that is very good.
