Expert Recommendations

"Unfortunately for me, La Ciccia and Lazy Bear are closed on the same days. But if some reason I'm ever off on a random day this is the first place I want to go. Everything on their menu is incredible, but this is my favorite. Fresh pasta with rich and squiddy (totally a word) sauce and the perfect amount of lemon zest. This is some last meal type of shit."
"Massimo likes to change up the pasta in this dish—fregola one year, linguine the next—but it's always delicious. The seafood sugo and squid ink are amazing. He is really true to his cooking and does a great job with making Sardinian soul food."
