They seated us very quickly so we didn’t have to wait long to eat. The service was amazing and our waiter was very nice and friendly. The food was also amazing and I would definitely go there again

Been to NY several times but hadn’t tried this place until now. The cheese wheel cooked pasta was delicious but I wish they offered a couple more options for it. My GF’s chicken parm was stupendous. Highly recommend this place. It was a little on the empty side when we went so the ambience was perfect for my liking.

First time there. Best pasta I ever had in my life. That being said, I'm from the rural south and just moved to NYC.

The ambiance and service were wonderful. The prices were reasonable for the area but I don't think the food was worth the price. The entrees were good, chicken parm and shrimp special but the apps were underwhelming. The calamari was tough and just seemed not fresh and the rice balls were just okay. Overall it was a nice night out but I'm not sure I would go back

The pizza was very good but the Eggplant Foccacia was cold and not very tasty. Should have chosen something else.

Excellent food and service. I made reservations for myself and my husband for 7:30pm. But due to a very busy day, we changed our time to 10pm without any problems. We were seated within 30 seconds and everything was on point, from appetizers to main course to desert. We will be definately visiting again. My husband ordered the Chicken Alfredo Fettuccine and I got the baked cheesy Ziti.

We went to have a nice family dinner before watching a Broadway show. The food was very tasty and portion sizes were generous. Service was good, our waitress wasn’t the friendliest, but she was efficient. The prices were good, considering the location. Overall, we had a good experience.

One of the poorest dining experiences I’ve ever had. The whole thing is kinda tacky and the pasta in the cheese wheel with brandy was downright inedible. I’ve never left this much food in the plate— literally could not swallow another bite.

We have had dinner here before when we have come to the theater. Food is excellent and service is outstanding. I had the rigatoni Bolognese, it was great not overloaded sauce.
