Savor a variety of Eataly's regional Italian pastas, from the slow-roasted veal-filled agnolotti del plin of Piemonte to the saffron-enriched malloreddus of Sardegna, paired with a unique selection of Italian wine and beer by the glass.

FEATURED PASTA: GNUDI

In celebration of Il Pastaio's first anniversary, we're going even deeper into the art of pasta, from ingredients to technique and beyond. Throughout the next year, Il Pastaio will be exploring a different pasta style, technique, and history every season. This fall, we've started with gnocchi: our November menu features fresh, pillowy Gnudi di Ricotta served with Brown Butter and Sage or Salvatore Smoked Ricotta, Hazelnut Cream, Parmigiano Reggiano® DOP. Stop by to try these limited-time dishes, and watch as our pastai prepare them right in front of you!

TAVOLO TAKEOVERS

To celebrate one year of pasta tradition, technique, and regional dishes at Il Pastaio, we're bringing back Tavolo Takeovers! During our special Tales from the Pasta Maker series, you can meet and eat with renowned guest pasta makers, who come from all around the world, as they prepare a specialty pasta at our tavolo, or "table," in the middle of the restaurant. All autumn, we’ll uncover what the restaurant stands for – modernity, empowerment, tradition, and authenticity – through exciting demonstrations, dishes, and more from our famous guest chefs.

OUR INGREDIENTS


FLOUR
Our semolina flour is certified organic and is produced by Molino Grassi, an Italian mill founded in Emilia-Romagna in 1934. Our soft grano tenero flour comes from Molino Pasini, a third-generation miller located in Lombardia.

FARM FRESH EGGS
In order to achieve a rich flavor and golden color in our fresh pasta, we use naturally-fertilized eggs from Chino Valley Ranchers, a third-generation egg farm located in California. After testing out different eggs, we found that Chino Valley eggs offer a brighter, redder yolk more akin to the eggs used to make fresh pasta in Italy.

FRESH SAUCES
For every shape, there is the perfect sauce! All of our sauces are created in-house, with recipes developed by Eataly's chefs together with our head pastaio, Luca Donofrio. We use both high-quality ingredients imported from small producers in Italy and fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from U.S. based farms and producers.

ARTISANAL TECHNIQUE

The secret to Eataly's pasta-making technique? Small hands and big hearts! Trained by Eataly NYC Flatiron's head pasta maker, Luca Donofrio, our team of pasta makers mix, knead, roll, cut and form each pasta shape from scratch following artisanal Italian methods. We also use pasta machines with bronze die attachments to extrude certain shapes. Each bronze die offers a perforated filter giving each pasta shape a rough, porous texture. The result? Pasta that absorbs the sauce more easily and unique mouthfeel.
