Trattoria Cantina- 8th Ave and Jane

Ate here last night. Unassuming storefront, maybe a dozen tables in the restaurant. You might easily walk by it without seeing it on your way to the Corner Bistro. Its worth a trip though. My only gripe was the amount of time it took to get menus. Beyond that, it was a great experience. The owner was very hands on, providing recommendations and general assistance. Its the kind of place that will make you whatever you want, even if its not on the menu. Everything I had was delicious. Stuffed artichokes, eggplant rollatini, broccoli rabe with homemade sausage, stuffed clams, bucatini all'amatriciana, sauteed softshell crabs, spaghetti alla vodka. I don't think this place is in Zagat. Relatively inexpensive- a real hidden gem.
