They are a bit strick with the rules - no happy hour if you've booked on Open Table. That said, once seated the experience was nice and the food enjoyable. Appreciated the quite vibe.

We came here for my birthday
We came here for my birthday and they were able to accommodate 10 of us easily. We shared several small plates and dessert, as well as several bottles of wine. They did not rush us at all, and it was a really fantastic, low key way to celebrate on a weekday. The whole place is low lit, and has a great space for a larger party (maybe 20 people) in the back wine cellar room which looked like it could be a lot of fun. Just as a heads up, they did let me know that typically groups 10 and over must order from a pre-fixe menu. But I wouldn't let that turn you off... we really enjoyed ourselves!

Fantastic authentic Italian
Fantastic authentic Italian food. The staff mostly speaks Italian amongst themselves, which is always a good sign. Great value, great food. I will definitely go back!

Knowing very little about this place, i took a chance based on Open Table reviews. Great wine list and a charcuterie / cheese platter to match. Knowledgeable cheese and wine selections from the staff. You'll see me again...

Consistently good food at fair prices. Their chees and meat appetizer plates are amazing. They give Artisinal a good run for the money at half the price

Perfect EV find for a cozy dinner
Admittedly, my boyfriend and I were looking for a place within short walking distance to Bowery Ballroom and noticed this had good ratings, was near and had a 1,000 point reservation so we booked it. The food was fresh and perfectly cooked, the dishes and wine list were affordable, our waiter was knowledgable, thoughtful and great with suggestions. For the two of us who have lived here for over 20 years we thought it was a cute, delicious find in an area that can be a little loud and overpriced.

Great little spot in the neighborho
I went with my girlfriend on a Friday night and we had a delicious meal and a great bottle of wine sitting at the bar. The bartender was a nice young girl who wasn't too well informed on the wine list but was nice and friendly enough. We thought about sitting outside but it was a little warm and the noise from the traffic on 2nd ave is a little too much. Tasty menu and nice little room.

casual and stylish
The restaurant was a surprise. The service was excellent, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was perfect for a nice meal with your significant other. We ordered the cheese and meat platter, slecting 9 items from their savory menu of different cheese and cure meats, followed by homemade pasta in a light creamy sause with steamed vegetables. Both dishes were outstanding; The pasta was perfectly al dente, the sauce silky with perfectly balanced flavors, and the vegetables were nicely cooked and blended well in the dish. The service was also well timed and prompt. Definitely coming back for more.

LOVE this place
We love this little gem - we've been a few times. The 1000 pts on open table is the main reason, but now we'll be back regardless. A pleasure to dine here. We LOVE all the small plates. Try it out!
