Great Italian restaurant on upper east side, near hospitals. Excellent carbonara and shrimp scampi. The service is outstanding and the owner Simone is very friendly and courteous. Cozy atmosphere, ample portions, fresh ingredients and nice menu. Definately try the desserts, excellent. Highly recommend this place.
