Our server never asked us if we wanted anything to drink, so all we had was water. The food was delicious, but again, our server never asked if we wanted more bread... we never had the opportunity to ask because our server only came to take our order , deliver food, and give our Check. Overall, it was enjoyable, but poor service.

Service was very accommodating! It’s a small restaurant but they made our party of 6 plus baby very comfortable.

Ordered lasagna, veal saltimbucca, chicken & veal parmigiana, all enjoyable.

This is my third or fourth time at this restaurant. The food is so flavorful and made in the traditional style. The decor is simply beautiful and makes it feel very warm and cozy the second you walk in.

The best scampi shrimp pasta I ever had. Also had rigatoni a la vodka. Good portions and nice ambience. Always crowded so should book a table before you come here.

This is exactly what I envisioned an Italian restaurant with old country roots would be like in Little Italy. Food was outstanding and prices reasonable for NYC. The service was a good balance of polite and prompt. Didn’t feel rushed at all but we got through in good time.

Made a reservation and still had to wait an hour.. they messed up my mothers order and didn’t even apologize. They have her veal instead of chicken. I understand it was Saturday and busy but it was just overall a disappointing experience.

We were a party of three with a midweek reservation. Restaurant was steady but they did not set aside a table for us and.sat us at a busy isle. The atmosphere was cozy and overall service was attentive. The menu is tradition items with generous portions that are nicely prepared. Overall good experience even with the isle seats. If a special occasional hold out for a non-isle seat.

I was not happy with the seating in the restaurant. way too crowded. we were put in an isle table where people were constantly walking by. The entire meal was served way too fast we were only halfway through our appetizer when the main course was put on the small table. They were obviously trying to push us out quickly. My husband and I each ordered a veal meal which was over cooked and very chewy. With all of the choices of restaurants in New York I would definitely not recommend or go there again.

Little Italy not what it once was. I had the rigatoni amatriciana. It was spicy and more like fra diavolo and the pancetta was thick and not good. My husband had the gnocchi which was soft and melted in your mouth which indicated it was fresh but bolognese not very tasty. Our kids ordered chicken cutlet. Not good. My 8 year old can make a tastier cutlet.

From the start it was packed, I spoke with someone in front telling him I had a reservation at 815.
He snapped back everyone has a reservation, then walked away. We were not seated until 845. Overbooking a restaurant like that is awful. When ordering the waiter gave a lecture of how we couldn't mix sauces (if I'm paying for it why did he care?). The food came out extremely quick, which I was a little weary about, but it tasted good, nothing extraordinary. Also had to ask for lemon a few times before we got it and our water was never refilled.

Food was good, atmosphere classic, service so so as had to ask for simple things like oil for bread (twice) and requested lemon for fish (twice). Service was thus not very attentive. Overall would still recommend.

We were visiting NYC and wanted a great Italian dinner, so we headed to Little Italy. We saw a show so our reservation was late (10:30pm) and the restaurant was a bit quieter as a result. It was exactly what we wanted. The waiter was surprisingly standoffish. We couldn't figure out why. Halfway thru our meal, another waiter took over who was great. I had the seafood and pasta (can't remember the exact name), and it was amazing. Normally there's a modest amount of seafood, but I could barely finish the lobster, mussels, calamari, etc. It was a huge helping and I loved it. My wife had a smaller pasta/mussels dish which she liked a lot. We'd definitely go again.
