Food was ok or just good but nothing special. We got shrimp&mussels apps, lamb shank&veal for the main, and sorbet&bomba for dessert. The bread at the table was stale. A little expensive. You can do better for Italian food in nyc. Surprisingly crowded so I guess it's popular for some reason. Also it is rated a B for cleanliness which... More

I visited here for date night. I ordered the seafood special...Not good at all. I ended up taking it home and throwing it out the next day. The penne alla vodka was delicious though. I ended up eating my partner's food because mine was not good. The drinks were good, although the margarita tasted like something else. The service was... More

Whenever I am in the City this is my place to eat. It's intimate. The service is good. The food is excellent, perfect portions. The Location is good. If you are looking for piece and quiet this is not the place for you. Love the music and friendly atmosphere. You can always get the groupon to save a little. No... More

Excellent menu. Hard to decide. My friend and I shared a salad of Arugula, Pear, Bacon, Walnuts, and Gorgonzola Cheese. Followed this with two pasta dishes...one with eggplant and a delicate tomato sauce and the other was stuffed tortolini with a cream sauce. Very good choices..... Service was especially good. I was highly impressed and will return, next time in... More

My wife and I stopped in at the recommendation of a friend. The lunch portions on the Prix Fixe menu were more than substantial and the prices very good, especially for food of this quality. The service was attentive, the wine selection was very good, and the atmosphere was bright. Oh, the dessert was phenomenal also. We really enjoyed our... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
