Some of the perfectly chewy mezze rigatoni, slick with emulsified tomato and olive oil, concealed whole sweet, melty garlic cloves within their tubes. Mezze rigatoni, made with just semolina flour and water, is extruded in a glass-walled cube, visible from the dining room.

Reservations may be subject to cancellation by the restaurant or OpenTable to comply with such restrictions. Photograph by Eric Helgas for The New Yorker On a recent evening, the malloreddus with littlenecks, sea beans, and saffron lived up to the hype; Robbins treats the pasta—a vaguely conch-shaped Sardinian specialty—as though it, too, is shellfish, bathing everything in a delicate, salty, lemony broth that evokes a clambake on the beach. Linguine with breadcrumbs and colatura, or Italian fish sauce, tasted, jarringly, like it had been dunked into the ocean.

Familiarizing herself with Italian products, techniques, and traditions, Robbins fell in love with the simplicity, the regionality, and the focus on quality ingredients that characterize Italian cooking.

Lilia has earned Three Stars from The New York Times, and both critical and popular acclaim from across the country, and earned Missy a James Beard Award nomination. An externship at March Restaurant followed, where she worked for renowned Chef Wayne Nish before moving on to Arcadia, where she cooked under Chef Anne Rosenzweig. Robbins would soon travel to Northern Italy, where she worked in kitchens ranging from family-run rustic trattorias in Tuscany to the Michelin—rated Agli Amici in Friuli.

The tortelli, made with an egg dough, are cut by hand and filled with a purée of spinach and mascarpone. Jaunty little hat-shaped tortelli, finished with brown butter and snowflakes of ricotta salata, were just translucent enough to reveal their emerald-colored filling, a luscious purée of spinach and mascarpone.
