If the sounds, energy and spectacle of dining out give you a thrill like it does us, few places get it right the way Osteria Mozza does. Shining on the menu is the corzetti stampati ($25) with eggplant, olives and bufala ricotta. Each piece of pasta is folded with slightly drier ricotto (for a subtle taste) enhanced by herbs and olives; hand stamped with a wooden carved seal. The unique texture of this stamped noodle gives a different intensity and bite each time you sink your teeth into the pasta. We reckon you won’t have tasted any handmade pasta quite like this.
