I was walking through Soho and decided to stop in for some pasta at Sessanta. Sessanta is another restaurant in the trend of regional Italian cuisine. Its focus is on Southern Italy, particularly the Neapolitan area. The menu has items that are similar to other regional Italian restaurants like burrata, fritto misto, meatball, malloreddus, branzino. Other dishes are standard Italian and Neapolitan like eggplant parmesan, spaghetti with tomato sauce and linguine with garlic and olive oil. My friend and I were walk-ins on a Saturday night, and it was crowded but not overwhelmingly so. Not too hungry, we didn’t order a full meal. Even though we ordered only entrees, we thought we would get bread with the meal, but we didn’t.
I got the malloreddus with sweet sausage ragu, whipped ricotta and pecorino sardo. It was good.
My friend got the busiate with Spanish octopus, cherry tomatoes, capers and oregano and thought it was good but not great.
