For more than 15 years, owner and executive chef William Mattiello has provided the Flatiron neighborhood with simple cuisine from his hometown Modena, Italy. Specialties include borlengo, a type of crepe filled with pancetta, rosemary, and Parmesan; Arrosto di Cingliale, roasted wild boar; and black-ink spaghetti with squid. The interior design is anything but Italian, however, with bright, multi-colored tiling on the wall reminiscent of 80’s video games. The back wall is all wine from the Emilia Romagna region. Make sure to stop by an ATM first, as it’s cash only.
