Sandro Fioriti has been cooking authentic, delicious Roman trattoria food in and around New York for over 30 years.

The lowdown

That master of the pasta pot, Sandro Fioriti, has been flitting around New York, the Hamptons, and the occasional Caribbean island for over 30 years. Everything that passes through his swinging kitchen door is cooked with restraint and oblivious to fads, which only adds to its appeal. Get the fried artichokes, the puntarelle when it’s in season, and the fantastic bucatini all’amatriciana — and try not to overdo it with the addictive housemade grissini.
