The food here is excellent. We made reservations for our group of 7 about a week in advance and when we arrived we were quickly seated at a large round table. We loved the layout as it facilitates conversation and food sharing much better. We...More

Fantastic food in a light and friendly atmosphere, on a Tuesday at 6pm (got a table without a reservation.) Everything was excellent, including the burrata and heirloom tomatoes (special appetizer), the Bronzino, and a pasta dish with mushrooms. But the battered zucchini flowers with ricotta...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
