[Il Posto Accanto’s Cavatelli Di Ricotta Fatti In Casa]One of my favorite Italian restaurants on the Lower East Side has to be Il Posto Accanto. Not only can you sit outside and people watch on 2nd Street, but you can indulge in my all-time beloved pasta.  Homemade Cavatelli Di Ricotta Fatti In Casa. Hand crafted ricotta cavatelli, spicy Italian sausage, mushrooms, peas, and white truffle oil in a light cream sauce.  Good for those post NYFW who can now eat carbs. Not only does Il Posto Accanto have an extensive list of Italian wines to choose from, but they are also Eco-conscious, working with TerraCycle to recycle their cooking oil and corks.

Note: Il Posto Accanto has the same owners as Il Bagatto next door, at 192 East 2nd Street.
