The stars didn’t quite align for Astoria pizzeria VIA VAI, but it got pretty darn close.

“The kitchen spends every morning making fresh pastas and with the likes of gnocchi orecchiette and pappardelle among the choices, you can’t go wrong.” Owner and head chef Antonio Morichini was born in Rome and attended culinary school in Piedmont, in Northern Italy.
