On business trip for 24 hours in NYC, and was given this as a dinner choice. Got to say my Filet Mignon and Parmesan fries were fantastic. Service quick and swift and was getting very busy

The service was impeccable. The food was delicious. We tried various dishes, Pizza and Pasta and all was excellent. They have an extensive Wine list and a fantastic "Oreo" desert!

For what you're served, I believe this place is overpriced. The single meatball ricotta appetizer (though it was large) was $26. A glass of sangria was $18. A dish of FraDiavolo was $49. With all your NYC restaurant options, there are plenty where the food...More

We get Italian a lot in NYC and this is a solid but not outstanding option. Did not enjoy the Caesar salad much. The giant meatball and fried polenta apps were fantastic though and came highly recommended.

This is the place where you go for the after dinner party, don't expect much from the food, but be prepared to witness a great show from the dancers and be ready to be part of it. Would highly recommend if you're up to party!...More

What is the dress code for dinner? We're not looking forward to walking around the city in long pants during a heatwave and would like to know if we could get away with nice shorts and a dress shirt. Thanks for the help!
