Great restaurant for a date, or to catch up with friends/family. Cozy atmosphere, without being cramped. Good spacing between tables and quiet so perfect to have a conversation. Food is alright, typical Italian, but it's the ambiance and value that will keep me coming back. Good service as well. Nice neighborhood spot

The ambiance is great, feels warm, small and romantic. The food did not match the ambiance and was just “ok” not great. Both my wife and I did not finish our entrees.

The staff is very friendly and let us enjoy our time together. They were very attentive when we needed them, though! Delicious pasta, and great dessert. This is a great hidden spot on the Upper East Side!

We had a very enjoyable dinner in celebration of our anniversary. The food was very good, and well presented. My only criticisms--it was a bit slow placing our order, and bread was just average. When waiting for a meal, it's always nice to have bread that's been warmed, that's light with a crunchy crust! The tiny butter cookies at the end of the meal was a very good touch.

We have been dining here for several years and it really is a family favorite. Everything we order is excellent. The waiters are attentive, but not intrusive. Favorite meals include the spaghetti carbonara, the cold antipasto and the chicken Romano. All the desserts are great, but when we have the impulse for something special we order the zabaglione or the bananas flambé. So good. We went tonight after going to the Met museum and it topped off a lovely afternoon. A wonderful neighborhood place. We will be back.

They advertise an early bird special with no limitation other than time. We were there at the appropriate time, 5:50, and were told that it was not available on weekends. This was not mentioned on their web site nor the menu which was handed to us.
This is false advertising

I worry about a restaurant that has typos on their website and their business cards. It's called attention to detail. What goes on in the kitchen? I ordered eggplant rollatine as a dinner and it was drowning in tomato sauce and tasted old. Service was a bit strained b/c they had 2 large parties for such a small place. Also, I think $16.95 is a little excessive for a dessert, although tasty. Very pricey for what we had. Won't be back.

How have I lived in this neighborhood and not known this restaurant was here? What a wonderful gem - great food, lovely atmosphere, and we were treated like special guests. It's a small, intimate restaurant on the bustling upper east side. I will be back again and again!
