Ornella Extends $10 Pasta Special, Monday - Thursday

Fun news Astorians - the much loved, pasta haven Ornella is starting off the new year by extending their $10 pasta special throughout the week.  What that means is that every Monday - Thursday, you can virtually get any pasta or risotto dish during lunch and dinner for just $10.  How spectacular, especially if you're on a budget.

If you haven't yet been to Ornella and experienced their pasta goodies, here are some of my personal recommendations.

Imbustata (pictured above) - By far the most popular dish on the menu, it consists of a pasta envelope stuffed with roasted veal, chicken, wild mushrooms, mozzarella, spinach, mascarpone cheese and tomato sauce.  Mamma mia!

Pasta Gone Nuts - An innovative chestnut pasta, dressed with a fragrant pistachio sauce that's also topped with truffle oil.

Pappardelle with Oxtail - For something meatier, which is just perfect during winter, Ornella's homemade pappardelle is tossed with tender oxtail in a rich broth that not only has meat but mushrooms too.

Vegetarian Risotto
- Not your typical rice, cheese and meat combo, this one contains sophisticated sweet and savory ingredients such as sharp gorgonzola cheese, sweet pears, and peppery radicchio. Yum!

Enjoy these delicacies and the incredible savings.
