Storico Fresco has a lot going for it, like the mini Italian grocery store inside and pasta-making classes, but we’d still come here regularly without all that, because they serve some of our favorite pasta in the city. Start with the fried squash blossoms and get a few different pastas to share - the lasagna and cacio e pepe are both excellent. Grab a table on the patio to people watch and drink too much wine, and make sure you finish with the burnt ricotta pie with raspberry jam.
