Italian Classics Off South

It’s David Snyder’s second week on the job as a City Paper food critic and he gets some wine suggestions into his review of Hostaria da Elio, a small BYOB on 3rd Street off of South.

Hostaria da Elio is a sure bet for Italian classics. But If Sgambati has a signature dish, it’s his handmade gnocchi. The sweet potato variety in a basic spinach cream sauce is a must-have — the tender, ethereal morsels practically float from your fork to your tongue, where they melt into a warm, lasting memory.
