Nicandras is a casual Italian place in Bushwick that makes all of their own pasta and has reasonable prices for food you’d see at a fancier looking restaurant. There’s not much signage outside and the space itself is pretty simple, but this place fills up. So it might be a good idea to make a reservation for a date night with someone you want to impress, without having to spend the kind of money you would at other places in Bushwick like Maite or Faro.
