I looked around for an older thread to add on to, but couldn't really find anything dedicated solely to Bucato. Well … to be fair I didn't come close to over-exerting myself in the search, so apologies if there has been a recent report.

Went for the first time last night; will certainly not be the last. Between three of us we had:

Crispy Polenta
All 5 pastas (currently posted menu seems to be accurate), thus:

Strascinati w/Ragu Bianco
Cavatelli w/Duck Ragu
Stringozzi Cacio e Pepe
Pappardelle w/Lamb Shoulder
Orecchiette w/Sausage

And finished with Medjool Date cake

(Also had a bottle of the Verdicchio)

After being slightly underwhelmed with both Bestia and Factory Kitchen (just given all the hype), I was really prepared to be let down again. Though a chef friend at a local CH favorite assured me we would be happy.

Holy smokes! This place is fantastic. Not since Sotto have I been so impressed with a new Italian spot. We all loved it … everything.

Every. Single. Bite.

If you haven't been; go.

The Factory Kitchen,
