New York's Pasta al Forno is a restaurant opened by Emanuele Bugiani that specializes in artisan, baked pasta dishes. The owner is the creative force behind other renowned Italian eateries in the city's East and West Village neighborhoods and pays homage to legendary pasta maker Marino Pollacci with his latest venture.
The pasta maker's original Pasta al Forno eatery was open in Florence from the 1960s and closed its doors in 2000. His legacy lives on in Emanuele Bugiani's New York's restaurant of the same name. The elegant venue centers each of its dishes around tradition and elevates homestyle recipes with its stunning presentation.
Some of its most popular menu items include baked pasta casseroles, Bolognese lasagna and vegetarian-friendly yet rich favorites like Eggplant Parmigiana that is served alongside potatoes with truffles.
