We at Petrarca Cucina e Vino restaurant are very proud of our authentic Italian cuisine as well as our extensive wine list which features hundreds of Italian wines, but also includes several other options to meet your desires. We feature homemade pastas such as Lasagna della Mamma and gnocchi, meat and fish specialties, and desserts. Some of our daily specials include items such as burrata with speck, daily risottos, pan- seared duck breast, and grilled Branzino (European striped bass). Our owner, Chef Leonardo, prepares all of our specialties with the knowledge and traditions he brings from his native country Italy.

"We've been coming here since it opened and the food is consistently excellent. Amazing Lasanga, Nocci, and Eggplant Parm. Warm and inviting neighborhood gem."

Just a few blocks from Astor Place, Porsena is a trattoria in the convivial Italian tradition where friends and neighbors gather along with tourists and passers-by. Chef Sara Jenkins has drawn on memories of her Tuscan and Roman childhood to create a pasta-centric menu featuring Italy’s finest artisanal pastas, served with traditional and imaginative sauces, as well as a series of tasty antipasti and hearty main courses. Modeled after the simple restaurants in Italy that serve as neighborhood dining rooms, the menu focuses on a timeless list of classic Italian dishes such as maccheroncini al ragu and spaghetti con le vongole. Porsena is just the kind of colorful neighborhood restaurant you might be thrilled to find in the narrow back streets of Rome or Florence.

"Since it's mainly a pasta place, we were expecting more. It was not special enough to come back. A lot better options for Italian/pasta in the near vicinity."
