There’s no way you haven’t walked by Olio e Piú, which stands out with its green facade covered in vines on the corner of Sixth and Greenwich Avenues. The authentic trattoria features the cooking of corporate executive chef Dominick Pepe and new executive chef Pedro Cruz and focuses on vibrant Italian flavors. Another great reason to visit is the recently introduced breakfast service that includes eggs Benedict with prosciutto and an omelette with Parma ham.

On a menu filled with pizza, pasta, and beautifully cooked proteins, it’s hard to pick something that isn’t indulgent (okay, they have salad, too). The Fettuccine con Astice Diavolo pairs half of a perfectly cooked lobster with homemade pasta, a spicy tomato sauce, and tons of fresh basil. There’s nothing like a lobster coming to the table in its shell, and pairing that with fresh pasta elevates it even more. The spicy tomato sauce features whole cherry tomatoes bursting with brightness to keep the dish from being too heavy. Be sure to add Olio e Piú to your list for the next time you’re craving pasta!
