This was my first time back post-pandemic year. They are still excellent and have set up the space thoughtfully to give diners confidence. Food was great as always.

We met up with an old friend for the first time since covid. We were looking for outdoor dining but the outdoor venue here was uninviting so we decided to venture inside. That was a wise decision. The dining room is spacious and inviting. The staff were welcoming and efficient and the food was great. What else can I say? We had bronzino that was outstanding. The price was right , no one rushed us so we had lots of time to catch up with our old friend. We'll be back!

Our hostess/server was not very attentive and seemed annoyed we asked her questions about some dishes. The food was good, but not great. When she brought us the bill, she stood there AND WAITED FOR US TO take our money while the bus boy stood next to her. He then proceeded to clear off the table while we were still drinking our wine! He took my napkin while I was still seated finishing my wine. Very disappointed with the service. Will not be back.

After a day wandering around NYC, we found ourselves in SoHo on a warm day looking for an impromptu dinner. A quick check of OpenTable showed this highly rated and fortunately available restaurant ready for an early dinner. We were greeted warmly and seated quickly (it was only 4:30 so the restaurant was not busy yet). We ordered drinks. My wife's wine was very good and I had a well made Manhattan. We had the Prosciutto e Burrata antipasti and two pasta dishes. Our favorite was the Bucatini Cacio & Pepe. Attentive service and a nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Met some friends in the city for brunch. The first time since Covid started. They had the tables separated, took temperatures as we walked in. Everything was clean. I felt very comfortable. We had been looking forward to this for a while. We were not disappointed! Food was amazing as promised. There was 7 of us so we made a reservation. There was something for everyone. Delicious Balsamic Bloody Mary's too! We would definitely go again.

Nice and safe atmosphere. The waiter is nice. The food that I ordered was ok- too much Nutrella, not enough berries and yogurt. Mimosa is excellent!

Food was extremely horrible. Food was salty, they laughed as if It was done purposely. We didn’t like one of the full of oil appetizers, they were not courteous instead they said nothing , no apology. They also still charged us for something we didnt eat. Wine amount poured was served under what is typically served. The waiter was rude and insisted it was done correctly- meanwhile customer is always right. Wait staff was rude , dirty looks very shady. Food was not good at all. By far worse Italian in manhattan. FYI- bill was $258. Not worth it.

We had the Crab Benedict and the Waffle with a Duck Leg. Both were great.
We sat outside, there was a heat lamp and covering. Both kept us warm.
Service was really good too.
Overall, definitely recommend.
