The options here are food, service, decor, noise level, use of interior space, parking. The food is excellent. The service is terrible. There are so many rules. Arrive only at the appointed time and make sure to depart when we tell you to. The server...More

This place reminds me of the small restaurants in Little Italy in New York City. It's authentic and the operators obviously have taken great care in creating an outstanding dining experience for their customers. Atmosphere is intimate and romantic. The menu is nicely diverse, although...More

The homemade ricotta app is something you should come for. And the butterscotch dessert is something you should stay for. The wait staff are very knowledgeable about wine. Great for family and dates.

Many good items on the menu for dinner, but my favorite is the pork chop. its huge so go hungry or expect to bring some back. For lunch on Frida, the porchetta sandwich is tasty, moist, and with burnt ends, is unbelievably good.

This has been one of our go-to's for Italian in the city for years. With limited seating and an intimate setting, you get a sense of true and authentic tastes of Italy combined with a wonderful wine menu. I am a pizza BRAT, and this...More
