Going to Tutti Matti in Long Island City is like finding a corner of Italy one stop from Grand Central. The Italian atmosphere is not just carried by the food, but also the Italian language you will hear abundantly, spoken by the staff or customers. Looking small from outside, this place is fairly big and when we came, they were finishing serving a baby shower.

I think my top dish was the pizza. I admit that I was not sure which one I should order, from the classic margherita to the tartufata that has a black truffle infusion on it. Well, I went for the four cheese pizza or quattro Formaggi, probably my French roots kicking in when it comes to cheese. The cheeses were: Gorgonzola cheese, caciocavallo, mozzarella Fior di latte and pecorino romano. And there was definitely a lot of cheese in that pizza that was cooked in their wood fire oven as you can see below. This was a fantastic pizza: between the generous amount of cheese to the succulent crust that had a nice char and had a nice crunch. I loved it with its puffed up edges and thin center: this is definitely not to miss when going to Tutti Matti.

We also tried their house made pasta that were also very good. The first one was tagliatelle alla bolognese, a meat and tomato sauce that was sublime and I have to say that they put a lot of it with the pasta.

The second was the ravioli al porcini, ravioli stuffed with mushrooms and parmigiano topped with a light gorgonzola sauce. It was also very good, although I would have liked more sauce on it.

Last was dessert. We decided to go with a classic Italian one: the tiramisu that is home made too. And it was very good, with the lady fingers moist and well soaked in coffee, as well as a nice mascarpone cream. Simply delicious.

I should mention that, to accompany our meal, we got some prosecco from the Treviso area.

We had a great meal at Tutti Matti: the food was fantastic and the atmosphere nice and relaxed. I loved their pasta, but if there is one dish that was even better, it is the pizza that is one of the best I had in New York. So I guess you know: I will surely go back. 

Enjoy (I did)!
