This charming Upper East Side café exudes comfort and conviviality, with parchment shades that soften light from sconces that warm the room. Eager to please, the kitchen uses high-quality ingredients for its mix-and-match philosophy. Patrons can choose their meats, their pastas (dried or, for a slight surcharge, the restaurant's own homemade), and their sauces (from a simple marinara to a more complex carbonara) as they create their own dishes. For dessert, you can't go wrong with a cappuccino or a chocolate tartufo all served up with a smile.

We visited 3 times, twice for dinner, once for lunch because the food was delicious and of good value.
Our first visit, we were seated near the door and we got cold whenever the door opened. It’s a small cozy place and on a Saturday evening there was a lot of people coming and going.
For lunch, we were seated in the back and were very comfortable. Our last time was on a weekday so we were seated away from the door and we had another wonderful meal.

It’s truly a great place for any meal or occasion. The food is fresh and so many homemade dishes to choose from. What a rare find! The food is always great.

Enjoy!

Dinner on a hectic New Year's Eve, which meant we had to wait for our table to free up, even though we had booked. While fellow diners commented on our patience, we were given a free drink while we waited and, once the crowd had quietened a little, the service was excellent.

My children loved the food; even pasta dishes with seemingly simple sauces that you find everywhere were declared to be delicious and the cafe pronounced to be a new favorite. Everything was served promptly, even the additional starter we belatedly ordered and everything was well executed.

The free drinks came again as we finished our desserts, encouraging us to stay on towards midnight. A very nice touch that kept the parents happy too.

Absolutely the worst “hospitality” ever. The manager is a rude, nasty, unwelcoming person. Horrible in every way and I’ve been there 3 times and his behavior is consistently unpleasant. So this the 3rd time was the last time. The most unpleasant restaurant experience ever.
