The kitchen at Cesarina’s centerpiece is a pastificio, with an enormous mixer and extruder where a dozen or so varieties are made, including ruffled, twisted, and stuffed shapes that you mix and match with different sauces and toppings like octopus meatballs, guanciale, and earthy porcini. An array of antipasti, several specialty pasta dishes, and chicken, beef, and seafood entrees round out the bill of fare, and there’s a full vegan menu as well. Their deconstructed tiramisu is worth saving room for—homemade ladyfingers are doused with fresh espresso from a tiny Bialetti pot, then topped with mounds of crema al mascarpone and a dusting of cocoa—it’s also available gluten-free and/or vegan. Worth mentioning: the service at Cesarina is always as warm and enthusiastic as a nonna’s hug.
