An "Italian style" break in the heart of Nolita.

The Sosta

The Sosta, meaning “break” in Italian, plays on the idea of a well-deserved break, as well as breaking bread over a great meal. Open seven days a week featuring an all-day menu and weekend brunch, The Sosta offers guests the opportunity to enjoy fresh, authentic Italian dishes, including a focus on signature, house-made pastas and sauces, chef-crafted salads, fresh-baked focaccia sandwiches, antipasti boards, daily soups, specially-curated house wines and beers on tap, fresh-baked cookies and locally sourced gelato from Fresco Gelateria in the East Village.


Pazienza! More photos coming soon!

“It has been such a pleasure and learning experience working with Laureen and the whole Paperwhite team in creating the brand behind The Sosta. From development through to execution, their ability to interpret the ethos of our concept and then use their creative vision to translate that into a cohesive (and pretty!) brand identity, was not only impressive, but a lot of fun along the way."
