I LOVE this place! Hands down my favorite pasta in the city. Located in Capitol Hill, Spinasse is such a charming restaurant that recently doubled in size. That being said though, it’s still tough to get a table on short notice so I highly recommend reservations, especially if there are more than two of you.
There are so many reasons I love this place but the food and overall atmosphere are the clear winners in my book. The space is so cozy and rustic feeling and having the kitchen open to customers is such a fun treat. With the new addition, you’re able to see the pasta maker at work and have an even bigger view into the busy yet calm kitchen. Personally, I love sitting at counters where you can have a casual conversation with the waiters.
Every time I get the chance to eat here I always order the Tajarin al Ragu. I can eat an entire bowl by myself, however if by chance I have leftovers, I have to say they are SO much better the next day like any pasta dish is. The Tajarin Burro e Saliva (butter and sage) is just as delicious with clean flavors and just as much as a taste bud impact. Drizzle some truffle oil on there and that’s what I call the perfect dish! *Truffle oil not included…I use it at home on my leftovers:)
GO GO GO…you won’t be disappointed!
