Abuelo Picks: Homemade Pasta in Maspeth


For all you local Glendale/Middle Village/Ridgewood/Rego Park/Maspethers who were fans of La Tavernetta before it closed (formerly of 88th Street in Glendale), Abuelo has found them again!

Their new place, Osteria Italiana, is a no-frills spot on 61st street in Maspeth (between Flushing and Grand Aves). Β The place has no ambience yet, but the homemade pasta combinations make up for it.

We recommend ordering the homemade cavatelli (perfectly misshapen) with broccoli rabe and sausage. Β They also have a selection of risotto dishes, including a rich tartufo risotto (mushrooms and truffle oil).

I will definitely be adding it to our go-to list of places when I want a nice hearty dish of pasta.
