If you’re looking for fresh and innovative Italian, Dia is your new go-to. Head to their East Village digs for dinner (served between 5pm and 12am) and delight in a menu that's as serious about pizza as it is wine. From simple marinara and margherita to pancetta and porcini, Dia’s selection of pies doesn’t disappoint. But choices don't stop there. Start with a traditional appetizer, like arancini (parmigiano risotto, nduja), tuna carpaccio (bottarga, pickled shallots, baby arugula) or Sicilian meatballs (pork, veal, lamb, golden raisin, pistachios, pecorino cheese). And if you’re feeling adventurous, try the roasted octopus (puttanesca sauce, crispy potatoes, parsley) or scallop crudo (charred lemon vinaigrette, Calabrian chili, basil).
Of course, we can’t talk about an Italian feast without mentioning the pasta at Dia. If you’re in the mood for a warm bowl of noodles, try the taglierini carbonara (egg, pancetta, parmigiano, cracked black pepper, heavy cream), spaghetti seafood (rock shrimp, heirloom cherry tomato, garlic, crushed pistachio, first press extra virgin olive oil) or the agnolotti (veal cheek, pork, truffle butter). Other noteworthy mains include the braised lamb shank (creamy polenta, rosemary) and the branzino Milanese for one or two (fried panko breadcrumb crust, herb salad).
Finish your meal with desserts like honey nut squash and apple crumble with vanilla bean ice cream, broken cannoli (ricotta, dark chocolate, orange compote, pistachios) and panna cotta (black cherry and raspberry sauce).
