Pastificio Flora Coming to Eighth Avenue

A pasta-focuced Italian restaurant called Pastificio Flora is coming to the corner of Eighth Avenue and 11th Street. Many thanks to tipster Jeremy for sending the above photo of their logo in the window. Pastificio translates to "pasta factory."

While the owners have set up a website, a Facebook page, and a Twitter page, there's an oddly small amount of information actually published on those sites. The best I could find was the Twitter description: "Italian designer & his partners, leaving hometown in south Italy for make their dream come true: A real Fresh Pasta Restaurant in Brooklyn, NY."

That's honestly all the information I need to be intrigued.

Its a small space and theres several Italian places close by on both 8th and 7th aves-but they sound promising. Hope they pull it off, thats been a struggling storefront for some time.

going to hurt Provini, which is too bad

Provini has good food but their service is terrible and their prices too high. Hugo and Sons offers better service and more for your money but it can be a pain to get in at peak times.

This place will have to distinguish itself from both.

Hugo and Sons is deafeningly loud, with poor service and undistinguished food. It is also expensive, considering what you get for your money.

There are so many places to get pasta in the neighborhood, several of them quite good. Will the fact that this is an Italian import mean that the pasta will be outstanding? I sure hope so.

Ugh. What that corner needs is something like S'Nice or a Dosa place. Something that is lacking.

Hugo has this one creepy waiter.....

Hugo is a HUGE disappointment - weird staff, mediocre over-priced food, outrageously over-priced wine and bad pizza. Provini runs hot and cold. I have high hopes for this new place; maybe they are paying attention! In any case, as with the Hugo space, I am happy that there will be new life and, again, hoping for the best on my corner.

Unbelievable - have these people ever heard of market research? There are literally 10 Italian restaurants all within a 10 minute walk of the neighborhood. The LAST thing needed is another freaking Italian restaurant.

Unbelievably disappointing news...

There are lots of Italian restaurants in the area this is true. Lots more in the greater Park Slope area, but I stay in the general South Slope area when I eat out, Provini is close by but it seems this will have different vibe, not so much a bar but more food. Provini is hit or miss on food and service.

On 7th Av. we have Scalino and Hugos. Hugo's has been a big disappointment, the space could be perfect for the area. The food is uneven, the service is odd, the portions are small and the prices are high for the portions. The wines are overpriced for very small pours. I have been here a few times since it opened and have been underwhelmed and hungry after each visit.

Scalino's is another waste of time. Since the owners opened up their new place in Williamsburgh the food and service went downhill rapidly.

Giovanni's is packed all the time, with people waiting to get in. He pared down his Sette menu and kept what worked to make a successful place.

I am very happy to see a new place opening up and wish them luck.

Pastificio flora coming to eigth avenue is mind blowing article for me. Awesome article. Dear if you are using Whatsapp then you should visit these Relationship Whatsapp Status. Thanks again for sharing it.

If they do amazing, fresh gnocchi, I'll be happy to have it up the block. Otherwise, as above - we already have a surplus of Italian. When Hugo & Sons opened, my heart went out to Toto on 6th and 11th, which has a comparable menu, but wonderful staff that remembers you and has been a community spot for years. Hopefully Flora will bring great pasta and true Italian hospitality - otherwise I'm keeping my support with Toto.
