Pasta Franco, a new restaurant from the owners of pizzeria Motorino, opened on Thursday night at 508 Columbus Avenue between 84th and 85th Streets.
Pasta Franco is “a Northern Italian trattoria,” writes Alyssa Palombino. “We feature house-made fresh pasta, artisanal salumi boards, bistecca all griglia, and Italian wines. Weekend brunch coming soon!” For now, they’re only open for dinner hours, but lunch and brunch are coming soon. Most pastas and meat entrees are $20-$22.
