A new Italian restaurant, Pasta Franco, recently opened at 508 Columbus Avenue, between 84th and 85th Streets. They’re currently only serving dinner, but plan to start serving a weekend brunch in the coming weeks.
The Northern Italian restaurant specializes in pastas and wines. For fans of fall foods, they’ve got a gnocci with honeynut squash, brown butter and sage for $21. Their “Tagliatelle Funghi” with three types of mushrooms also sounds interesting ($20).
Here’s their Rigatoni Pomodoro ($19) with basil and parmesan:
Their Pappardelle Bolognese ($20) with beef, pork, red wine, sage and rosemary ragu:
And their Tortellini e Piselli ($22) stuffed with mortadella and parmesan with fresh peas:
Pasta Franco also has some non-pasta items worth checking out. They serve steak as a “permanent off the menu” item. It’s $44 for one (bone-in loin) or $100 for two (porterhouse).
Ricotta fritters with raspberry rauce. Other desserts include budino and tiramisu (all $9).
And a meatballs antipasta ($14):
Here’s Pasta Franco’s delivery menu (almost identical to their dine-in menu):
