In a different neighborhood, Rossopomodoro might be noteworthy - but there’s a lot of Italian food in the West Village, and it’s hard to compete with places like I Sodi, L’Artusi, and Via Carota. Still, the pizzas here are perfectly fine and crispy, the pastas - such as the rigatoni with big pieces of short rib - are competent, and it isn’t tough to get a table here. So keep this place in mind as a back up to your back up plan. The space consists of several interconnected rooms tastefully decorated with framed mirrors and blown up pictures of produce, and there’s a little bar room up from where you can eat a quick dinner or have drink while you’re waiting for a table at Don Angie.
