Claudio is a magician . He transforms what appears to be ordinary Italian food into delicious culinary masterpieces . His Eggplant Parmesan the best I have ever tasted -- even in Italy ! He and his team take tremendous pride in every meal that goes out the door .
For a little hole- in -the -wall store the quality food rivals any 5 Star Italian restaurant in the city -- (I also live in Manhattan . ) Give the place a try -- you will not be disappointed !
