Where to Satisfy Your Pasta Cravings in NYC if You’re a Starving Artist
Calling New York City a home since 1997, Pepegiallo is one of the most underrated Italian places in Manhattan. Tucked between the 900 square feet galleries in Chelsea, Pepegiallo is a true Italian home kitchen.Hearty Italian food in the city is usually terrible for your wallet, but everything on this menu is under $20. Most appetizers and pastas range from $9 to $15.

No wonder their unofficial tagline is “Feeding the Starving Artists since 1997.”
When visiting, be sure to try their house made burrata ($12) served with cherry tomatoes, arugula, and balsamic vinaigrette. Their tomato-basil eggplant mozzarella pasta ($14) is also an all time favorite. If you are looking for something creamier, order the rigatoni with salmon and mushroom ($15).
Last tip before you go: the line is 30 minutes long when dinner time comes around. Be sure to get there early!
