Named for the humble Roman pasta dressed simply but satisfyingly with pecorino and pepper, this East Village trattoria puts its own spin on the genre with a dish like monkfish saltimbocca. But it's the exceptional pastas that make the strongest impression, along with the abundantly friendly service and homey vibe. There's a garden out back, and inside, an even rarer find: plenty of space between tables.
