If you wonder why anyone would venture out for what is inarguably the easiest thing to cook at home, here is your answer: a summer special of fresh whole-wheat spaghetti at this new pasta parlor, dressed with pistachio pesto and chunks of summery zucchini. Of the nine other long-noodle options, we like the bucatini all’ ­amatriciana, a worthy version of that porky Roman classic. Italian-expat restaurants always seem to get wacky with the salads, and the Incident is no exception; one night’s thatch of arugula tossed with hunks of mango and avocado and dappled with black and white sesame seeds was an unexpected delight. And should you wish to supplement your carbs with more carbs, arancini are priced per piece ($3-$4; two-ball minimum).


Reservations accepted only for parties of four or more.
