Giovanni Rana

Giovonni Rana is a fifty year old pasta maker from Verona, Italy. It first appears somewhat like Eataly with pasta for sale, a restaurant and some packaged Italian goods. It is not, in that pasta is elevated to a fine art here. The pasta for sale is magnificent showcasing hard to find styles like beet tagliatelle- normally found only in restaurants. Raviolis with paper thin exteriors look great. The beet tagliatelle only $2 for a quarter pound(serving for one) is quite a bargain. You can also dine in and the chef is reputed to be quite good. A great addition to Chelsea Market. GO! GO!
