I had a really nice experience last evening at Lisca. It’s an Italian place on Amsterdam between w.92/w.93rd. Nice environment and friendly staff.
The food -
I had the pappardelle with wild mushrooms, caramelized onions, and goat cheese. Really nice balance of flavor - tasted substantial and not overly heavy at the same time. The pasta was cook just right, al dente so it still had some firmness but was not underdone either. A well executed dish.
My dinning companion had the lasagna with veal ragu. I only had a small taste – but enough to know that it certainly had interesting and rich flavor. In the end both plates were completely empty – including the sauce that we each used our bread to get the last drop.
Each pasta was $14 to give you a price range on the place.
I had a good experience and I’ll go back without hesitation.
