The Resy Guide to Italian Pasta in New York


If there’s one thing we know how to do (and enjoy) in New York City, it’s Italian food — especially pasta, not to mention pizza. The city is overflowing with excellent options, from old-school red-sauce joints to new-order pasta tasting menus — and we know better than anyone that all those choices can start to get a bit overwhelming. So, for your convenience, we’ve collected some of our favorite Italian-style pasta specialists in the city, some of which are well-known standbys and other under-the-radar gems that might just surprise you.

Side note: If you’re looking for exemplary noodles of the non-Italian variety, check out our guide to “new guard” pasta here.
