Highly recommended. Ate here twice during my stay in New York. Had the lasagne and 22 oz steak. Both meals were delicious. Reasonably priced. The staff were very professional and polite. Booking in advance not required.

I had the shrimp and pasta pesto. The shrimp was nicely grilled but the pesto was just green stuff thrown in a blender. It is NY so wine by the glass is overpriced.

This restaurant offers consistently excellent Italian food. It can get quite noisy due to its popularity and poor acoustics. The wine list is good, but not exceptional. Attracts a professional crowd for lunch, especially from Pfizer, whose HQ is next door.

The service was very good and the restaurant was cozy. It allows pets to go inside. Nice place to go with kids and friends.

It can be crowded on Friday nites, better to make a reservation in advance. And do not forget to check the dessert menu.

I didn't notice a children's menu. They seem very nice and I noticed one couple had a baby with them. You could always share a pizza or other food.
