Review By: Thomas Rafael
House of Lasagna in Murray Hill has a BIG, BOLD signs urging people to come in and taste it. So we did. Take three steps down and you are in this quaint Italian restaurant with its wooden floors and white tableclothes. The kind of place were you can feel comfortable sipping a nice glass of wine or one of their "all night" martinis and cosmopolitans with cost six bucks. The menu prices are just as reasonable.
There are about a half dozen varieties to choose from; Lasagna Nolognese (the house favorite) with fresh pasta layers with Bolognese Sauce, parmiggiano & béchamel; Lasagna Napoletana with slices of sausage, meatball and ricotta; and Lasagna di Spinaci with spinach, parmiggiano & a light béchamel. They also make a "Lasagna of the Day," made with seasonal market ingredients. Most are in the $14- to $15 range.
We tried the Lasagna Piemontese. It's about two inches wide covering the length of the plate and about two inches high. The pasta, which was not over-cooked, is layered with wild mushrooms and caramelized onions, ground short ribs of beef, asiago cheese and béchamel surrounded by a puddle of marinara sauce. It was piping hot and flavorful, especially when you got a taste of the marinated mushrooms, meat and cheese all i one bite. A sprinkle of parmesan took it over the top.
