First time here and almost walked out. I saw prices online and took one look at the place and figured it can't be worth it. Small room, dim lighting, bare black tables - no table cloths, just unimpressive. Service was good but pretty casual. No...More

The food is amazing. I've been here several times and ordered different meals on the menu and they have not disappointed so far. The ambiance is very relaxed and sophisticated. Perfect for a dinner date with your significant other or for a drink with friends...More

Some of the best Italian food I've had in NYC. The food we tried ranged from simple (grilled fish), to traditional (meatballs, chicken parm), to creative (spicy shrimp alla vodka). All great and delivered with stellar service. My only bit of constructive criticism is that...More

First try. Appetizers, such as the burratta and the grilled octopus were superb. The chicken parm and veal capriciosa, OK but uninspired. The rigatoni with the Sunday sauce and Zuppa de Pesce were absolutely superb ! Long wait for the main offset by complimentary dessert...More

The service was excellent and the food was even better. I was pleased from the apps to the dessert. The grandma's meatballs and the octopus apps were amazing. The grilled branzino was incredible and that's coming from someone who doesn't always love seafood dishes. The...More

This is my brother's favorite local restaurant, which they frequent for special occasions. We had a large group and they spoiled us with impeccable service and wonderful Italian cuisine. We met the chef, who I understand won on the "Chopped" TV show. The place had...More

We enjoy dinners here, but the new "brunch" needs tweaking. Normally, brunch means all-inclusive. Here, it's all ala carte, from the syrupy Mimosas to the pre-meal basket of muffins or whatever. Aside from the FANTASTIC pancakes, the food was mediocre. The omelet was typical diner...More
