It was good. Not great. You're not going to get a bad meal.
Service was excellent.
Portions were OK. My chicken parmigiana was kind of small for the price... wifes meal was a good size.
Excellent sauce. (Vodka and red)
Typical NYC prices.
Not as pretty as the pics on the gram make it seem. I'd come back but wouldn't go out of my way

Would give food 3.5 stars

Delicious food. My pasta - i wanna say farfalle california something- was cooked perfect and loved the goat cheese. My daughters pasta was just as delicious, angel hair with veggies in a garlic and oil. Service was great.

Waiters were rude as hell, didn’t want us to order the special cheese wheel pasta noodles because they were too lazy to actually make it. Kept giving excuses of why I shouldn’t order blah, blah. No kids menu food was ok but it worth the backlash of waiters who hate their jobs.

Very good restaurant. The only thing that was strange was that even though I made reservations, we still waited on the same line as people who didn't have reservations. So it ended up being first come, first serve. I questioned that, but the staff told me that I was there early for my reservation (20 minutes early??) Not a good enough excuse when you make a reservation. Overall, as mentioned above it was very good.

Met for dinner here before a show at radio city - great food, excellent service and reasonable prices in a very pricey area. Decent wine selection, too. Very good every-day Italian food.Great choice if you’re in the area.

Excellent service and friendly waitstaff. Food is wonderful no matter what you order. We had the lobster bisque which was rich and creamy.. absolutely divine!! We both ordered off the special of the day menu and the scallops over risotto with peas and bacon was delicious. My granddaughter ordered the pasta special prepared at the table.. pasta with 3 types of mushrooms and a bourbon sauce. Absolutely wonderful. Would suggest this place to anyone looking for a great meal at reasonable prices!!

I chose this restaurant because it was close to one of the theaters we were going to. I am really glad that I found this place. The service was really outstanding. The host and servers were really friendly and made sure that our food and time was tasty and pleasant. The food did not disappoint and was very reasonably priced for the city. The restaurant had room to move around, I did not feel cramped in any way. My parents were very happy and saved the business card to visit in the future. Overall, a wonderful experience.

We have regularly dined here and my previous reviews were all excellent. This experience; however, was the opposite. Food and value are good; however, my three colleagues all asked for their leftovers to go-- Two were provided "doggie bags" and the third was not. When we questioned the waiter, his response was I thought only the 2 ladies wanted their leftovers to go. When we collectively informed him that this was not the case and that we said all 3 are to be packed, he apologized and said he would talk to the manager. We then had desserts and when the check was brought to the table , we again asked what the resolution of the matter was. Given that we frequently patron this place, we thought a 1/2 order was being made to go. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Eventually, the manager/owner said we did not inform the waiter that the leftovers should be wrapped up and upon saying that his waiter was not telling the truth, the manager/owner said he was willing to make a 1/2 of pasta to go-- My colleague had the veal dish and we said that was unacceptable and we questioned why it took so long to get a response, especially since the lunch crowd was sparse. Rather than get into an argument, we simply left and said we would never come back. Interestingly, no response was given except that the waiter apologized again. In all my years of dining out, this was the worst case of management that I have ever encountered. We were not tourists, they knew us that twe worked in the area and have had many lunches in their restauarant. Clearly, they will never see me and my colleagues again!!

There are very few places in the area that are NOT tourist traps and very noisy. This place has good food and is quiet enough for a conversation to be heard!
