About the restaurant
Join us at Aunt Jake's Upper East Side for our Pasta Making Class & 3-course pasta menu! The cost is $60 per person for pasta instruction and the prefix meal. We require a $10 per person non-refundable deposit.
The entire experience is approximately 3 hours.

Please use the OpenTable mobile app for best results when booking the Pasta Experience.

Aunt Jake's was founded in 2015, as the company set out to replicate the idyllic, simplistic cuisine we grew up to enjoy. However, we wanted to create Italian food for the “next” generation. The idea was to develop an Italian concept around the customer’s choice of how to eat pasta compared to how the restaurant wanted you to eat it. With that in mind, Aunt Jake’s core mission is to bring high-quality fresh ingredients daily to craft our handmade pasta and sauces health-consciously. The customer can mix and match sauce with shape and create a custom dish of their own.

I was next to the assistant chef for the pasta making portion and he was fantastic! Went above and beyond making sure me and the surrounding people knew what we were doing.

About the restaurant
La Gioconda is an Italian restaurant with a rustic appeal. The dining room is cozy, with only about 12 tables filling its main seating area. The decor is quaint and charming, which leaves guests feeling that they could be in a small neighborhood diner somewhere in Italy. The food at La Gioconda is moderately priced with hearty portions, forgoing the smaller plates of fancier fine dining restaurants.

La Gioconda's menu is full of classic Italian dishes that guests will love. Each is made with the freshest local ingredients and careful adherence to the classic recipes that made the dishes iconic in the first place. One favorite is the slow-roasted short ribs ragout. La Gioconda also has a full range of Italian wines by glass to pair with its authentic cuisine!

About the restaurant
Mexico Lindo is one of the oldest Mexican restaurants in New York City. The family owned and operated establishment opened its doors in May of 1972. The dishes at Mexico Lindo are local, seasonal and inspired by the home-cooked meals one would eat growing up outside of Mexico City.

Try one of the restaurant’s signature house specials, which include mole poblano, shrimp enchiladas, grilled steak tacos. In the summer, Mexico Lindo celebrates the zucchini squash blossoms with a handmade corn masa quesadilla & bicolor corn esquites.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner there. Bruno, the owner, stopped by our table a few times. They gave us a tray of complimentary desserts. Would definitely go back.

About the restaurant
During this time we will not be open for dine-in service, but we will be offering take-out service. Please contact the restaurant for details.

The instant you walk into Italianissimo Ristorante, you are overcome with a feeling of romance. When you arrive, your hosts for the evening sits you at a table adorned with gorgeous fresh flowers that evoke a certain elegance and charm. The maitre d' presents to you the nightly specials that Chef Luigi Campoverde (who is no stranger to the Upper East Side, with stints at Il Nido, Il Monello and Portofino Grill) is about to prepare in the kitchen.

About the restaurant
Lavagna opened its doors on February 1st 1999.The restaurant offers casual Italian trattoria fare at moderate prices. The vibe is candlelit, cozy, with an old wood burning oven, exposed brick walls, a pressed tin ceiling and a small wine bar where one can dine also. A wall of French doors swing open in the warmer weather to a seasonal sidewalk cafe of 20 seats.
The kitchen concept is to create dishes traditionally Italian, emphasizing fresh, seasonal ingredients and product of the highest quality.
The menu highlights include homemade pastas, a wood oven roasted fish for two, roast pork chop, baby rack of lamb and of course the rigatoni with sweet and spicy sausage that has become a classic over the years.
The wine list has been a yearly recipient of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence since 2002 and it focuses on hard to find wines from regional Italy along with other international selections.
