At arrival, there was a sign on the door that they were closed due to a plumbing issue. No warning at all for those with reservations. We booked through Open Table, so they could have at least cancelled reservation. App would not allow us to book anywhere else due to the ‘double booking’. I understand things happen, but the way it was handled was super poor and a major issue for us trying to get dinner before our show.

The atmosphere & service were amazing but the food was a 6/10. Portions are small for the price. I had the chicken fettuccine Alfredo and it was not very good. My daughters ordered margarita pizza and there were only 2 pieces of basil. It was more like having a cheese pizza. I will not be visiting again.

The food was good. The waiter was terrible. He took forever to come over to our table and take our order. He explained that they don’t split checks and then continued to say he would do it for us anyway. Which was great. But then put the wrong stuff on the wrong check…twice and then proceeded to roll his eyes at us every time he looked at us. So my cousin had to go to the manager to get him to put the right stuff on the right check.

Entrées were phenomenal—truly excellent. And the portions were enormous. I wasn’t expecting so large a meal in New York. Fried mozzarella was underwhelming. The sauce was good, but the breading didn’t have much flavor. Service wasn’t great, but not awful.

I’d absolutely go back.

Took my wife and my kids here after we visited Rockefeller Center and saw the Rockettes perform. I made a reservation just in case but when we arrived a little bit early around 12:30 there was available seating and they sat us right away. The ambulance was really nice, it was decorated well for Christmas, and overall the experience was very good. For something so conveniently located, it was well worth the money. That is not to say it is the best Italian food I’ve ever had in my life, or that it was cheap by any means. But considering you’re in midtown Manhattan it wasn’t too bad. Great selection of appetizers, entrées, wine menu was excellent too. Would come again next time I visited over the holidays.

I’m from Los Angeles and wanted to treat my sister the night before I was leaving to head home. and after the Radio City Christmas show to a nice dinner at a nice restaurant. I asked the waiter for a wine recommendation and he gave me a snide response. We used our bread plates as salad plates because no one came by to offer clean, salad plates and we didn’t want to wait to eat our salad. We had to ask the server for cheese because he didn’t bring the food and didn’t come by to check on us. The food we was ok. We found the entire experience underwhelming. It was 4pm so being busy was not the issue. Disappointed in the experience.

Food and wine excellent. Service issues because I think and hope she was new. A lot of Mix-Ups misunderstandings. The holiday music with just the right volume and they was very good about spacing people so we were not sitting on top of each other. Definitely will return
