Classic Italian in comfortable environment with local neighborhood feel. Food was fresh and good. The for help sign on door accurately reflected their need for waitstaff but bartender/waiter was helpful. Pending grade so hope they do okay.

This restaurant has good and poor qualities. The location and atmosphere inside are very good. Thing is, nobody was in there on a friday night. After we had dinner, we understood why. We saw an open kitchen firing up pizzas and alot of delivery people going in and out so the pizza is probably very good. It took 2.5 hours from start to finish with our meal. We had to hail server over even though the place was empty. Veal piccata was tough, no flavor of lemon with a floury cream sauce. The veal marsala was apprently better. Bread should be warmed up in a place like this but wasn't. Then the bill came with a mandatory tip for four people? REALLY?

We were very pleased with the service and the low key ambiance.
However the food left much to be desired.
Dishes were drenched in spaghetti sauce and parts of the meat were not tender.

 (New York Area)·Dined on February 17, 2017

The food was very disappointing. I've never had bruschetta with a one inch thick pile of shaved mozzarella on top. This was a business lunch for 7 people on my team and the bill came with a generous 20 percent tip already included. I thought that was inappropriate for a business lunch and considering there were few people in the restaurant, I would have tipped 20+ percent. It was just distasteful considering the food was extremely mediocre at best. I was pretty embarrassed I chose this place for my team's lunch and would never go there again.

We found this restaurant had great reviews on Yelp so we decided to walk over and see for ourselves. We were in the city for our baby moon and I HAD to have some yummy Italian food. Well this fulfilled all of my cravings and then some. The chicken parm was DELICIOUS! At first I thought it would be too much but I ate every last bite. My husband got linguini with chicken, peppers and tomatoes. He devoured it as well. We were very satisfied with our meals. I wish we had room for dessert but alas.....we left without it. Maybe next time!

Meatballs were cold, but the sauce was so hot it burned my mouth. Service was very slow. Took 20 minutes to get and pay our check. The bread was good however, and the taste of the salmon was good.

Place we empty on a Friday night. I went with a group of people, and will not be going back. One ordered pasta with meatballs, which were frozen in the middle. Even after sending them back, they did not come out hot from the kitchen. We split a Caprese salad, and the tomato was probably the worst quality I have ever seen at a restaurant. The tomato sauce used for the pasta tasted underdone.

The best part of the meal was the pizza, which was over-cheesed but still had decent flavor.

The food was reasonably priced. We live in the neighborhood so it is easy to get to. The server seemed angry at the world . She poured our water and it was all cloudy. We said we wouldn't drink it and she just left it on the table anyway. It's really to bed because of her I'm not interested in rushing back. I had the grilled whole fish . It was so delicious.

We were looking for a nice Italian resturant without going to the typical NY place and this was a great choice. I would consider it a great find in a local neiborhood setting on the east side, staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was really outstanding.

Went here with my son and we were seated right away. No one asked us if we had a reservation. We ordered our food right away and our drinks but we waited for a coke and water for over 15 minutes. Our waitress wasn't
Very attentive so if you're in a rush definitely wouldn't
Recommend this place but in all fairness the food was delicious..,they just need to improve the service.

I think the food was good, but nothing spectacular. I took some out-of-town guests and though we had a nice time, I could tell this wasn't going to be the highlight of their New York culinary experience. All agreed that there were superior Italian restaurants in their home towns.

The wood-fired pizza was probably the best item our party had other than the bread basket. The pastas were pretty standard, but good. The two members of our party that ordered the eggplant parm were not overly enthusiastic about it.

The ambiance was good: fresh white tablecloths and the pizza oven in the back. I would go back, but probably not bring out-of-town guests looking for a "New York experience."

Went there for dinner , we were greeted by a lovely hostess and decided to start with pizza as an appetizer. Thin crust pizza margarita with a choice to add toppings, later we had a veal marsala and chicken parmigiana. Veal was just perfect , tender not hard but juicy and chicken par. was absolutely delicious with spaghetti on marinara sauce. The service was nice too, they didn't rush us out even though we were seated for quite long time. Their take out was extremely busy too ,no wonder because they have really good food and very reasonable prices for midtown east.

I came to this restaurant for lunch as it claimed to have thin crust pizza and was convenient to my next meeting. To start, the server informed us that the chef was too busy to make pizzas. I ended up with a flavor-free Caesar Salad and some adequate pasta. I won't be back.

The stone oven doubles as a fireplace in this white-table-clothed, reasonably priced Italian restaurant. I enjoyed a shrimp pasta dish while my companion enjoyed the lobster & cheese ravioli.
