This sequel to the popular dell’anima strives to deliver more than its precursor, with buttoned-up Ralph Lauren–inspired decor and pristinely presented small plates like squid ink pasta and a raw spin on vitello tonnato (veal topped with tender cubes of tuna). The upscale trattoria's larger dishes offer a homey quality, including a comforting buckwheat tagliatelle with brussels sprouts and fontina. Sip from the pages-long wine list or snag a bottle of the fan-favorite house wine, which puts all other table reds to shame.

I have nothing to say but go and eat the raw scallop and the house spaghetti and drink your house red face off!

Oh, the hype is quite real.


You've heard of L'Artusi, I'm sure. Famous people eat here. It's probably the first thing that comes up when you type "Italian West Village" into Google (which is also an incredibly frequent search term I'm sure).


And each publication you read will tell you how amazing this place is. And they're all right. L'Artusi is simply one of the best Italian joints in town. The food, the drinks, and the space all come together to create a very pleasurable dining experience.


I would say order every item on the menu because I'm sure they're all equally delicious, but 1) that's not cost efficient, and 2) stomach pump surgery is expensive (or so I hear). So if you have to prioritize, there are a few menu items that are absolutely can't miss. The gnocchi is very decadent but worth it, and the squid ink pasta is one of the best I've had. And make sure you don't leave before trying the olive oil cake.
