Food is consistently very good; service decent and the noise level is low - which means it is nice for meeting friends you actually want to speak with!

Had an awesome dinner here. We had the pasta that was mixed in the big wheel of cheese. Might be a little salty for some people, but we loved it. The service was great too, the waiter was very attentive and loved his job. Highly recommend this place!

It was a good overall meal. The servings are good size, perhaps a little pricey. The atmosphere is nice but nothing special. It's convenient for theatre goers but probably not some place I would choose for a special occasion.

El sitio es amplio y muy bien ubicado, sobre todo en la segunda planta. Empezamos mal desde el pan que sirvieron, estaba duro y viejo. Los platos fuertes unos bien como las pastas otros malos como la pizza. Llegaron muchos comensales a la vez y eso distrajo mucho a los meseros, tuvimos que pedir varias veces las bebidas y la cuenta. La experiencia en general no fue buena.

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

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.

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.
