Plenty of neighborhood Italian joints advertise fresh pasta these days, but Spina is one of the few spots that truly brings it center stage. Walk into this quaint trattoria and see pasta chef Blanca Rincon quietly hand-cranking sheets of freshly made dough at the “pasta bar.” Seasonal ingredients inspire dishes like fettuccini infused with asparagus, or envelopes of agnolotti stuffed with artichoke, ricotta, and lemon zest, tossed with creamy tomato butter. In the heartier Malloreddus, saffron-infused nuggets of gnocchi come topped with a veal and pork ragu. The sideshows stick to the comfort theme: light, fluffy pork and veal meatballs in chunky tomato sauce, Prince Edward Island mussels finished with earthy chive oil, and a crispy roasted chicken marinated in olive oil, basil, and garlic. Let these dishes round out a meal—with Blanca in the room, pasta takes the spotlight.
