This tiny Italian spot in the West Village feels like someone’s studio, but with about seven tables (and an open kitchen) instead of an Xbox and a stained couch. The food is all excellent, from small plates like prosciutto with egg and black truffle to housemade pastas like cacio e pepe and pappardelle with beef ragu. As for the wines, there are only a few options, and we recommend going with a liter carafe of the house montepulciano for $30.

A little Italian cafe and sandwich shop on the Upper East Side near Central Park. We love the sandwiches, but hate how much they cost.
