My first drink (Prosecco) did not come for over 20 minutes where there was no other customers. They explained me that they have a bar up on roof and it is closed so they didn’t have a cold bottle. Waited further, they told me to wait as they are chilling the bottle (unbelievable). When they finally served me a glass of Prosecco, it was not cold. It was very unprofessional not having cold drink ready and disappointing experience.

Nothing outstanding, quite a bit lacking, particularly service. There were 4 members of our serving team— lead was perfunctory, one was openly disdainful, one was very chipper and friendly (thankfully) and one handled the water and busing. Pasta dish (shrimp and spinach fettuccine) was over cooked with an overly thickened, paste-y sauce. Would’ve sent it back but no one checked to see how it was. Special squid ink ravioli was very good. Carpaccio was non descript. Decent selection of wines by the glass. Overall, a nice variety of menu selections. Desserts looked basic (visually presented). Going to out this experience right out of mind and not bother with them again

This is the second time I went to this place and I was double charged for some dishes. The first time I was there I thought it was an honest mistake but the second time I went there it happened again and I noticed the next door table complaining about the same thing. Watch out!

Atmosphere of true NYC Italian restaurant! Excellent food - 30' long pasta noodle and lobster ravioli with great appetizers! We came here because of location near our hotel on Memorial Day Weekend.

i felt there were intentionally misleading communication that lead to several charges on our bill. we were asked if we wanted still or sparkling. there was no mention of tap - we did say still assuming we were getting tap water - $30. Two of us each ordered the pasta special which was enormous and served family style and $46 - there was no mention of size or a suggestion that it could be shared. Lastly, the other 4 guests ordered the fish special which was 45, as well. Our server said “and for vegetables we have...” leading us to believe it was included and not al la carte. The tactics were dishonest and certainly misleading.

This place is a true gem in Midtown East. The owner who was also functioning as the maître d’ was just wonderful. Extraordinarily attentive service. Fabulous well-crafted food. Very reasonable as well. If you’re looking for great northern Italian this place is it!

Loved the service and atmosphere. Very romantic. We were provided with complementary small plates before we ordered. After eating, a dessert cart was rolled around and we were given moonshine on the house! A very nice surprise. Would definitely come here again.

Had dinner here with a friend. The space is relatively small and charming, with tables spaced well apart. Background music is "Sinatra" type jazz, low enough so you can converse easily. The Maitre D' is a delight. Big personality, warm and eager to ensure that all his diners are happy. Most of our dishes were excellent to outstanding. We loved the baby kale salad appetizer with raisins, walnuts, ricotta and raspberry dressing, and both mains were fabulous: Black Pappardele fra diavolo with zucchini skins, mushrooms and a perfectly spicy tomato sauce, and Chicken breast filets dipped in parmesan and sauted in lemon and white wine/butter sauce (one of the specials that evening). Our other appetizer was a special, as well, and the only mixed note: a scallop with a tomato based sauce was perfectly cooked and delicious. But the single whole calamari on the same plate was too tough, and what appeared to be a heart of palm with sauce was good but not memorable. Chocolate cake for dessert was delicious. Red wines start at $59 and escalate quickly from there. Our bill with tax, before wine, was $170. Feels a bit expensive for this level but not egregiously so. And we had a wonderful evening here. Recommended for a romantic dinner or when you're in the mood for great food and service with friends or family.

It was hectic which is understandable because it was Valentine’s Day however, our waiter forgot about us and when we tried talking to the manager about the service he brushed us off. When we got our waiters attention he remembered then our food to then informed us that there wasn’t anymore of what we ordered and It took us 3hrs to get our food. Our waiter even tried to make us a complimentary drink but it was horrible.

This place is not prepared for indoor dining. We showed up on-time for an 8:45p reservation and were not seated until almost 10:00. The entire place was chaotic and there was several arguments between patrons about who was "next in line" for a table (why was there a "line" to begin with -- they should have been seating people in order of reservation times).

Overbooked dozens of reservations on Valentine's Day, line around the block, people crammed into a 100% capacity restaurant. Watched the Maitre D pick up and immediately hang up my call (and others). Rude and irresponsible. Waited until 9PM for an 8:15 reservation before we finally gave up and went somewhere else.
