The fish was not fresh, the pasta tasted like a frozen lean cuisine meal and the pasta sauce tasted supermarket bought.

We loved it! We had a lovely outdoor dinner with excellent service- even in the rain. Staff went above to make our daughter’s birthday special. Food was excellent! We would return when in NYC again. Excellent location for theater district.

Great little casual Italian restaurant. We sat in the outside space so I’m not exactly sure what the indoor space was like but it seemed quiet. Staff was EXCELLENT. Better than many high end restaurants I have been too. Extremely attentive. Menu consists of basic Italian staples. Knew that when I booked and it was exactly what I was looking for New York is coming back! Definitely check these guys out. Would go 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.

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
