Is there a better place in town for pasta right now? From his house-made spinach lasagna stuffed with chicken meatballs to his butternut squash pansoti and classic pappardelle bolognese, chef Bobby Matos is rockin' the kitchen with delicious Italian food. And it's not just the things he makes, but the quality of the ingredients he sources. The burrata caprese is dreamy, the cream-centered mozzarella and plump garden-fresh beefsteak tomatoes a joy to savor. Meat and seafood dishes are stellar as well: Chianti-braised beef cheeks are meltingly tender, the flounder amatraciana tomato sauce is buttery and rich, and the linguine alle vongole is a thing of beauty. To top it all off, his pastiera di mare came in at No.1 on Press critic Kaitlin Steinberg's list of her 100 favorite dishes, just another testament to the impressive Italian fare from Ciao Bello's kitchen.
