Handmade pasta is the name of the game here, as brought to you by a chef who’s done time at Spago, Rustic Canyon, and Bucato. Chef Evan Funke’s mission to bring incredible Italian fare to Venice has been a smash hit so far, with diners raving about everything Felix has to offer. The oxtail ragu is mandatory and pairs nicely with a Haitian Divorce (mezcal and aged rum, cherry and Pedro Ximenez). Make a reservation before heading over—the place is a hotspot already.

The Felix frenzy has reached such heights that you'll have to book your table a month out, but never fear—the no-reservations-required bar offers the full menu. It also gets you closer to that impressive amari collection, and away from the buzzing and decibel-climbing dining room. Evan Funke's temple to handmade pasta serves perfect al dente handiwork, plus pizzas and small plates; just be sure to get there early enough for the pappardelle, a dish so popular it has a tendency to disappear by night's end.

I recently had to quit carbs for health reasons, and Felix was my last carb-heavy meal for a while. I definitely made the right choice. You can taste the dedication to perfection in each bite. I had the Rigatoni All 'Amatriciana' and the Pappardelle (yes, I ate two entire pasta dishes by myself) and wish I could have tried the whole menu. The drinks are handcrafted with the same attention to detail as the food. Reservations may be hard to come by, but the bar is usually pretty accessible for walk ins.
