I'm particularly interested in places with great pasta.

    Sfoglia - gets mixed reports here, but I've enjoyed most of my meals there. Had an interesting pasta with figs, ricotta, hazelnuts and brown butter recently.

    Paola's - around for years, moved recently to 92nd & Madison - I've had a couple of excellent meals there - wish I could remember off hand which pastas I had!

        If you can bear the din, especially near the bar at the front, Elio's has very good food including superb pasta with clams.
