Malatesta Trattoria

649 Washington St. New York, NY 10014 | West Village | 212-741-1207

Location Description:

Plastered with pulp fiction covers, and located at the creepy end of Christopher, Malatesta enjoys the perfect location for its raffish food, which hails from the poorer southward part of Emilia-Romagna. Enjoy the stuffed flatbread piadina, or the predictably great bolognese sauce, here called by its proper name of tagliatelle al ragu.
