Don Angie Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant & décor: Husband and wife team Scott Tacinelli and Angie Rito bring an eye for colors that pop to Italian-American red sauce favorites at Don Angie, their 60-seat restaurant in the West Village. It is a cheerful, modern space decorated in bright blues, dark wood and gold accents, with low lighting. The curved bar is a fun spot for a pre-dinner cocktail.

Likes: Striped caramelle pasta; The Pinky Ring cocktail; stuffed garlic flatbread.
Dislikes: Food can be heavy; space can get noisy and loud.

Food & Drinks: Tacinelli and Rito have a way with pasta. Their two-toned wrappers --- half of the dough is made with sesame paste, which turns the pasta jet black --- is both Instagram friendly and unquestionably tasty. It’s filled with Italian buffalo milk ricotta, tossed in brown butter sauce, sweet-tart persimmon and black sesame purée, then showered in fresh basil. Cheesy, garlicky stuffed flatbread makes for serious comfort food. Chrysanthemum salad arrives under a mountain of grated Parmesan. Sea bass crudo is a refreshing start before all those carbs, and a hefty prime rib braciole for two is served with roasted tomatoes and broccoli rabe. The wine list focuses on Italian wines and American bottles made using traditional Italian grapes. Cocktails like The Pinky Ring, a tart concoction of Carpano Antica Formula, Campari, rye, Galliano, cherries and grapefruit peel stay true to the Italian theme. For dessert, vanilla olive oil mochi is surprisingly light.
