Can anyone recommend a restaurant in Manhattan (Midtown to Downtown) that does exceptional gnocchi? Nice and fluffy, not hard and gluggy. I really need some good comfort food.

      That discussion doesn't mention Lupa, which serves excellent gnocchi. They're ricotta gnocchi, though, not potato gnocchi.

    2. Only had it once about a month ago but what I had was excellent: gnocchi all'amatriciana at Bar Stuzzichini, 20th and Broadway.

      1. I really like the gnocchi from Pelligrino's in Little Italy

        1. The gnocchi at Hearth are superb.

            I'm partial to the gnocchi at Marseille - yes, I know it's a French restaurant, but even so, I find their gnocchi rich and wonderful.

              Interestingly enough, the best gnoochi I've ever had was also from a (long defunct) French place.

          2. Love the gnocchi alla gorgonzola at Malatesta in the West Village, and I hate gorgonzola cheese! It's more of an alfredo sauce, and the gnocchi are light and pillowy and they melt in your mouth!
