At least 15 new pasta spots have opened in Manhattan this year and most are hard pressed to distinguish among them. For example, there’s small-bites Italian (Centro Vinoteca, Bar Stuzzichini, Bacaro); imported-from-Brooklyn Italian (Aurora, Lunetta); tongue-twister Italian (Accademia di Vino); Italian posing as fancy French (Fiamma, Insieme); Italian no longer posing as fancy French (Alto); Italian crossed with French (Nizza, Bobo); and Italian crossed with Japanese (Natsumi, Dieci).
