Excellent as always. Don't be afraid to leave some food to take home as it tastes just as great the next day. Very happy they had our table for 7 waiting for us right on time. We bypassed a lot of people waiting for a table.

Service was wonderful! No manicotti on the menu but I happened to ask the waiter and they made it for me anyway. Best homemade marinara in little Italy!! Can’t wait to go back!
