  • Great for Groups!

    I dined solo but I noticed there were 3 large groups in the restaurant that all seemed to be having a great time. I will go back with a group very soon. Great food.

    I wonder what the family portions look like. I went in here at off-peak time and stuffed myself with stuffed mushroom caps, seafood salad & spaghetti & meatballs. Delicious!

    We spent the afternoon at the Guggenheim and came here for dinner afterwards. We found the food, wine & service to be exceptional and the prices to be reasonable.

    Dined on 1/18/2014
    The pasta was perfectly al dente and tastey. Salad was yummy and parchment wrapped fish special delicious - but not outstanding. The "family style" portions were really not fit for more than 2 persons. We were 6 people and ordered 4 family portion selections. We left a little less than sated - and we are your typical not big eaters!

    This restaurant is a gem on the Upper East Side. We shared appetizers, tricolor salad, and lemon chicken. I thought everything was prepared very well. Food was excellent and the family portions are generous. Why the 3 TVs in the front room were playing is a mystery but there are other rooms and the noise was not overwhelming. We will be going back soon.

    This really works out to be a very reasonably priced restaurant. It's a bit up there in the Upper East Side but there isn't much car traffic so the taxi got us there quickly. Definitely locals place, no tourists.

    Dined on 11/28/2013
    We had three in our group and all ordered different selections of prix fixe which was a good value (37.50) for the scale of service and remarkable quality. One had turkey meatball spaghetti with calmer appetizer, another had the TG turkey dinner special with caesar salad, and I had the chicken with spinach Osso Bucco style along with Osso Bucco salad,,,,all were very expertly created and presented and flavored to perfection. We also had the Merlot selection of wine as part of the prix fixe and all had pie deserts, apple and pumpkin, in addition to a bottle of wine All were presented expertly...we especially appreciated the not just warm, but also crisp (!) pie crust.....really made our TG 2013 outing one to remember.

    usually stay in Soho area, was in town and took a friend's daughter out for dinner, and this place was in the area.- a happy selection! Particularly like the way most items can be ordered family style. We all agreed on a pasta side and salad, and had generous, delicious servings.

    Portions are generous and food is an excellent example of what an old fashioned neighborhod Italian restaurant use to be. One of the few places you can still get a chicken on the bone dish. Nice choices of wines by the glass.

    Came for a family dinner while my parents were in town. The servers were very attentive and it had a nice ambiance and a good bar area. It was an older crowd while we were there, but we were also fairly early. Food was very good!

    Would never have discovered this gem if it weren't for one of our college grandchildren residing in a nearby college dormitory building. Even the on-street parking was easy on an early Saturday evening. Martinis were great too. Don't tell anyone. Harold G

    When arriving, we were told the computer was broken, so our reservation couldn't be confirmed. However, our party of 4 was seated without a problem. I felt some of the items were overpriced, based on the quality. Caesar salads were $10.50 each - but they arrived with the Romaine lettuce wilted and warm! Not worth that amount of money. My Chicken Paesana was oversalted, but fair. The vegetables served with my entree - green beans and broccoli - were, however, properly cooked and al dente.

    We went here to celebrate my mom's b'day. The service was outstanding. The waiters were super attentive and knew their stuff. Our main waiter recommended just the right amount of food for our party of seven. The place is large, on two floors, and feels like it's been there for a while. I'm used to dining in more intimate spaces, but this was great for a group. The food was really tasty, especially the calamari and antipasto. Not inventive, but solid, filling dishes.

    Food was too salted!! For an italian restaurant, the pasta tasted like ie out if an old package left over from a bodega. soup and apps were unimpressive. dessert was average. Decent service given the manager seemed like he didn't want to be there. Nice effort from the staff to be attentive. definitely had better food from local pizzeria.. Just being honest. Good luck guys.

    excellent Italian food at a fair price. good, but not great, wine list. Service was superb. If you are in this neighborhood, Osso Buco should be your first choice for a nice meal. Also, they serve family style and we had a wonderful, semi-private dinner for 14 upstairs a while back

    The waiters do not know the basics of serving in a courteous way. Their hands are all over your face and the table as you have a conversation with your friends. They are aggressive and in your face. The wine list is weak and even then they don't have many of the wines on the list.
