Giovanni Rana: A True Taste of Italy

By Anna Ryan

Italy, best known for its impeccable pasta dishes, has made its way to New York City.  With fresh, hand-made pasta, Giovanni Rana gives you a true taste of Italy. Not only does the menu capture the essence of Italy, the hand-picked artifacts transported from Italy enhance the Italian experience.  Among these artifacts are Giovanni’s first tools for making his hand-made pasta, 200 graters from Italian flea markets, and Giovanni’s red motorbike, on which he delivered his hand-made pastas, hangs next to an exposed brick wall by the bar.
