    I don’t usually leave reviews — Was not very impressed by the food and the service was bad. Had to flag down our waitress multiple times. Had a rude interaction with a bathroom attendant. Bussers were very quick to take plates away even if we were still eating. At one point the busser took our plates but not our silverware, but manhandled our silverware in the process and set it down right on the table? Kinda gross IMO. This place has a lot of space and isn’t super loud. Vibe is cool. The service just really sucks.

    Gor together with the family for dinner. The food selection was limited for being an "Italian place". Same for the wine selection. The place is extremely noisy and even more when the DJ arrives later and it's more packed. Good place to gather with friends but not for a talking type of dinner. Service was slow. Food was ok nothing to rave for. One time visit for me.

    We had a lovely dinner in the bar area. We were able to catch the happy hour which was a bonus to try all the appetizers. We moved on to all enjoying our pasta dishes. The atmosphere is wonderful. Would be happy to have an event there if one arises as it is a big space.

    My husband had the pancakes at brunch and said they were hard and tough. He didn’t even finish them which is odd because he is a big big fan of his pancakes. I had a Caesar salad that was adequate. The service was attentive.

    The restaurant didn't indicate they had a special limited (and expensive!) menu for Valentine's day. You could not order off the regular menu. The food was good and our waiter was attentive but 70pp for 2 courses was not a great value proposition. The restaurant automatically added a 20% tip which (while normal for large groups) is odd for 2 people and left a bad taste in my mouth. The space itself was nice and I enjoyed the soft jazz music but overall while I spent $180, I certainly didn't feel like I got a $180 experience.

    Had my birthday dinner here for about 13 people. The group was a mix of older and younger adults. Atmosphere was amazing but it was very crowded so the noise of people enjoying themselves and music together. Did make it a little hard to hear. Totally not a dealbreaker though. The food we had was the family style menu, and the platters were so big! It was so much food that everyone took home two plates. definitely would recommend this for group dinners

    We went for happy hour and the drinks were strong, the food was okay, but our waiter, Jesse was amazing! The mini burger had too much of a salty aftertaste, the margherita pizza was okay not all that flavorful, the arancini was the winner the side sauce was more flavorful than the sauce used on the pizza. All in all 7/10.

    Our first server was a little short with us and we had a feeling he didn’t want to interact with us. This feeling was confirmed after he switched us over to another server and kept working on his other tables. Other than this encounter, we really enjoyed this restaurant!! The second server was AMAZING and so delightful whenever bringing the food and checking on us. The food was also delicious and I would really recommend the burger, pancakes (with caramel gelato), or the eggs Benedict. The place is beautiful and perfect for brunch.

    We enjoyed the food, which is best enjoyed tapas style sharing the small plates. The ambience is oriented toward a younger crowd and large groups, with most of the seating at long tables with benches and stools, as well as fairly loud music. If that’s the vibe you are looking for, this is one of the best options in Manhattan— especially if you enjoy bar games like shuffleboard and air hockey. If you are seeking quiet and conversation, there are better options nearby.

    we ordered the French toast, 2 eggs over medium and toast. The fresh toast was actually ice cold as if it was taken out of the refrigerator and then served to us. The medium eggs were not medium but yet super soft and running barely cooked and the toast was so hard and burnt as if it was yesterdays toast. We ordered a pizza that looked as if it was warmed up from the night before. Every thing was terrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Cavernous multi room space... it got very noisy as we left on a Friday night at 7 p.m. The food was good, and a good value for the price. I had a great$6.00 happy hour beer. The service was odd. The waiter couldn't be found so we asked a question of an employee walking around our area. He didn't really speak English so he asked another employee walking around the area to talk to us. He said he'd have to find our waiter. A number of young men were walking around, some asked if everything was OK. So it appeared that there lots of people working in our area. But, to what end? Running by and asking if everything was good, then saying "awesome" before we finished a sentence wasn't helpful. Service was slow. I'd give it another try, maybe at an off time.
