Pasta Prix-Fixe at Giano and Spina

What's better than a big bowl of pasta? A big bowl of pasta with wine and prix-fixe. See below for the Prix-Fixe Pasta roundup:

Giano 2 Giano:  This East Village restaurant combines both traditional and contemporary Italian dishes to give you the best of both worlds. Starting next week, they will be offering a prix-fixe Risotto Supper. For $19, you can get a bowl of their nightly Risotto (choice of two), and a glass of wine. This prix fixe dinner will kick off on Sunday, Nov 7th and continues throughout Winter.
