Went there today for dinner, I had seen the restaurant on TV before and wanted to try their lasagna. The food was great and lasagna is baked fresh while you have your salad and or appetizers. Garlic bread was so good, I wish I had a whole loaf :) The quantity was huge and it could be enough for two.... More

Had brunch there around 11:30/12 which was the perfect time to come! Be prepared to wait or book a table! As a solo traveller I had to eat at the bar because the rest of the restaurant was booked. The place gets fairly crowded and the atmosphere is really enjoyable. I recommend the egg benedict, great plate of food and... More

A friend brought a group of us here because he loved their lasagna, but I have a love/hate relationship with dairy - so I was a little worried about selection. But after the server recommended the spaghetti I took a chance and am so glad I did. Sure you're thinking it's noodles, sauce and a ball of meat - how... More

We spent a month living 2 blocks from this restaurant and enjoyed it so much we ate here at least 4 times. The buratta was a real hit with us, as was each of the various pastas and meats we tried. Great, friendly service, long opening hours, a modest priced wine list and good ambience all added to it. Well... More

I had dinner here after a performance at the nearby Joyce Theater. The place was empty when I arrived but soon filled up with tables too close to each other. In fact, the diners at my adjacent table spilled their drink and it splashed on my back. The waitstaff cleaned up my floor but did nothing else. I had to... More

Was looking for another restaurant but was closed due to Thanksgiving Day. So walk around and find this. It was an unexpected find. Was sceptical when we entered the restaurant at 1:30pm when there is no guest in the restaurant. But the experience was great. The food was really good. We had set lunches that is really value for money.... More

We stopped for a quick dinner on our way to Atlantic theatre. Looked like a nice place for a romantic dinner - dimly lit, candles, white tablecloth. Everything was just right except for the blaring loud pop music. We asked twice to turn down the volume and eventually they did but not by much. Other than that, a cordial server,... More
