Diner Reviews
  • "Way over priced for what you get in terms of food, service, ambience and location. If you were going to spend the amount of money a dinner for two costs here you might as well go to a more known restaurant. Definitely not worth it and will not go again...ever."

  • "I'm not sure I'd call 62nd & Madison a neighborhood, but this restaurant is a gem, a very expensive one. But the pastas are TOP quality, the service professional & the scene very vibrant."

  • "The restaurant is medium, hi prices, NYC has much better opcions for this price. Maitre has offered a burrata(very nice italian muzzarela),and don´t say us the price. US$ 50,00 plus tax for a individual burrata. If you choose any suggestion, ask for the price, we don´t ask and pay more than a double for a single menu´s opcions. O restaurante é medio, preços caros pelo que oferece.Tem muito restaurante melhor em NYC, Não siga nenhuma sugestão do atendente sem perguntar o preço antes, não é um restaurante honesto. Pedimos 2 burratas por sugestão dele e gastamos US$ 50,00 cada, US$ 100,00 só por duas burratas, pedimos mais 1 sugestão fora do cardápio e ele cobrou o dobro de um prato normal, italiano malandro pensa q somos otários, fuja."

  • "This restaurant came recommended but my group of 5 were all disappointed. We had a reservation but were not seated for 20-30 minutes after. The noise level was deafening and the wait staff rude-or maybe they were as stressed out as we were in that atmosphere. They were obviously trying to move the table as quickly as possible - we were barely seated when the waiter asked to take our food order. We were in the middle of the room with waiters reaching and carrying trays all around our heads - we constantly had to duck out of the way. The food was OK, but the prices ridiculously high. It was so hot, loud and cramped we couldn't wait to get out. With all the great restaurants in NY, I'm surprised this place had a crowd!"

  • "A nice looking place on the upper east side. Knew it would be expensive, however, outrageous is more like it. My husband and I each ordered appetizers and shared one of their special pastas of the day, and shared a large bottle of pellegrino, bill was $200. Appetizers were fine, nothing special. The mushroom pasta (which we later found out was $65), was gritty. Would not go back."
