New Neighbor: Ulivo
Ulivo is the most-recent restaurant to open in NoMad, the northwest corner of the Flatiron Business Improvement District. Ulivo's main attractions are its homemade pasta dishes--pappardelle with oxtail ragu, squid ink tagliatelle, and linguine with white clam sauce. Executive Chef Emanuel Concas creates all of Ulivo's pasta dishes in its own pastificio (or “pasta factory” in Italian).
According to General Manager Fabio Camardi, the neighborhood’s beautiful architecture and unique ambiance were major factors when determining a location for the restaurant. Ulivo had been scouting retail opportunities in the neighborhood for several years until they finally found the perfect space on West 28th Street. Camardi hopes that Ulivo’s central location will attract a mix of tourists, local residents, and foodies from across the city.
In addition to homemade pasta, Ulivo offers Italian-imported salumi and formaggi, an extensive wine collection, and wood-fired oven pizzas and flatbreads. The restaurant boasts a refined and cozy interior with candlelit tables, wood ceiling beams, and an open kitchen. Ulivo also offers patio seating during warm-weather months.
Hours are 11:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily.
