The restaurant itself is quite small. Similar to KazuNori (which makes sense since it is part of the Sugarfish/KazuNori family), there sits a massive bar countertop with an open kitchen. Around the bar are tables that house larger parties. Uovo lacks décor and the wine list is quite small, but in all honesty, who cares? It's all about the food, specifically the pasta, and well, the fact that it's pretty darn affordable helps too.Overall, Uovo is a great place if you're feeling like you want pasta without putting a dent in your wallet. It's a great place to bring a friend or two so you can try all the different pastas available. I've been to Uovo again since this visit and ordered the Bolognese, which I think is now my favorite dish. The place can be quite busy and the wait time isn't too bad; they usually do a good job with turning the tables. It's a simple place with simple dishes. They also have a few vegetable dishes, but I don't think it's worth wasting stomach space. Stick with the pasta.
|TAGLIATELLE AI CARCIOFI ($15.00): Tagliatelle with Fresh Artichoke. This was a good dish. It's very light and the tagliatelle was cooked perfectly. There is butter in this dish, which I love. If you like a lot of sauce, this isn't the dish for you.
