If you’re ready to indulge in a carbohydrate-heavy dinner, make sure your meal is made from the freshest and best ingredients. Assenti’s Pasta in Little Italy promises exactly that, while throwing one family’s dedication into the mix as well. Founded by mother Adriana Assenti, today her sons Luigi and Roberto continue the tradition. Local chefs load up on their fresh pastas and raviolis while savvy home chefs can choose from a rack laden with freshly rolled pastas, while oils and other ingredients fill surrounding shelves. A cooler case is packed with over a dozen sauces and sage butter, and a take-out menu waits at the counter where the staff happily answers questions and will patiently circle the cooking times for your selected pasta.
