    Italian restaurant run by Albanians, very nice guys. The penne bolognese was perfectly al dente and the sauce was delicious. A chicken special was swimming in cream sauce and cheese - tasted good, but too rich for me. However, others may enjoy it like that. The desserts were ok. The coffee was terrible - burned. The wines were reasonably priced.

    Our lunch was basically a total disaster. Virtually everything went wrong. One would think that if one made a reservation for lunch that the staff would be prepared to serve customers, but it was clear that no one looked at the reservation list. We had the prix-fixe lunch, and my wife did not enjoy her red snapper, which was supposed to be served with spinach and pizzaiola sauce, but was served with neither. Also, my chocolate cake dessert was supposed to be served with ice cream, and this was also missing. Also, my white wine came out warm - I'm sure they had neglected to chill it, and had probably just opened the bottle. The person who allegedly was our server seemed to have no experience at all; when she came out for the first time she asked us if we had any questions on the menu. This was difficult to answer since we had no menus! There were other screw-ups also. I think service might be better at other times, but I don't think we want to test out this theory!

    Probably the worst dining experience I’ve had in nyc. Service was terrible from the beginning, there’s absolutely no sound dampening so it’s super loud, and it feels as though you are dining in a hallway and made to feel as though YOU are in the way. Cherry on top was finding a large piece of plastic in my mediocre rigatoni. At that point I just started laughing. Couldn’t wait to get out of there except they forcibly gave us a trio of desserts that we didn’t ask for that was not good.

    I would not go here again. Staff was kind, but they were all family and arguing/talking loudly through out the restaurant with each other. Literally they were in the middle of taking our order and stopped mid-sentence to yell across the restaurant. It was very unprofessional. Also when we were greeted we were sat at a table that was half set/missing glasses/silverware. They also did not have any music playing or any type of background noise so it was awkward (other than their yelling at each other). Nobody seemed to be enjoying themselves in the restaurant in my opinion. We had lobster bisque which was actually the only part of the experience that we enjoyed, it was delicious. We both had seared scallops special for our entrees and were not impressed. No flavor at all and definitely undercooked. They gave me a glass of wine on the house after dinner, which was nice, but it did not make up for the scene we witnessed through out dinner. I caution you to not go here, it was $170 for everything and we instantly regretted giving this establishment our business. I suggest the staff lowers their voices significantly, adds some background music and work on their professionalism.

    I had read a great review of the restaurant in The NY Times so made a reservation for our first dinner here in the city this visit. We didn’t get a great feel when we checked in. Felt like we were a bother to them. We noticed a very large group in the back room that must have been too much for them to handle. We were seated but it took 20 minutes for someone to talk to us or give us a menu. The servers seemed overwhelmed and no one was focused on us. The food was very good when we finally got served. I had the linguini and clams and my husband had the lobster ravioli. Both were excellent. The vibe was not what we expected. Too bad.

    This place provides a New-York-quality experience that includes impeccable service, authentic Italian food, often served table-side, and a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ that draws us to it. This was our second time back, and there will be a third.

    Das Essen hat eine 4-5 Sterne verdient, es war sehr hervorragend. Leider muss ich hier 2 Sterne abziehen, der der Service und die Überheblichkeit des Kellners einen ein Gefühl verspüren lässt, das man hier nicht willkommen ist. Wir hatten eigentlich die Nudeln zum Teilen bestellt und das dieser Bestellung wurde eine doppelte Portion, das war nicht so das Problem, aber das die Pasta vom Teller auf unsere Teller runter geschoben wird ist nicht die feine Art von Service. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall nicht wieder, in unmittelbarer Nähe sind weit aus netter Italiener mit herzlichen Service.

    Great atmosphere. However the up selling was aggressive and they tried to pass on much more expensive wine than we ordered and charged us for a bottle of wine they said was complimentary. $705 for 4 people before any tip.

It’s one of the best Authentic Italian places with some of the best ambiance, food, and people around. I always find a way to get here when I’m in town and they’re great for just a part of 2 up to a party of 50+. Love this place and love the people that work here.

    Nice spot for business lunch. Wait staff excellent. On the pricey side, however, if the food is excellent, not a problem. To be honest, I've never had chicken Scarpariello without either hot or sweet peppers or at least mixed peppers. This dish left much to be desired. My colleague had the Risotto which was excellent, so maybe a wrong choice for me. I would definitely go back and give it another try.

    Caesar salad was “meh” and not prepared table side as indicated. Wait staff did not warn us a pasta special was $45 and enough for 2-3 servings. Three of our party got it and they were traveling so did not get to keep the leftovers. I was also dismayed that for a party of 5 the restaurant added an automatic 21% tip.

    The pictures are not accurate. It is a small restaurant next to a hotel, so the pictures are actually of the hotel. The food was average, definitely not worth the price. Even though there is a variant the waiters who may or may not be vaccinated were unmasked indoors. I wish I could say this was a better experience but I know that there are more worthy restaurants out there who don’t need to put fake pictures up.

    This was the most overpriced dining experience I have had in a long time. We were charged for everything including the items that we didn't order and that were place on our table when we arrived. The wait staff did not make us feel welcome or appreciated in any way. You would think the way they padded our bill, they would be nicer. I will say the Linguine with Clams was outstanding. My Veal Marsala was bland in taste and appearance. So was my friend's Cheese Ravioli. There is nothing special here. I have no idea why their Yelp review is so high. It is undeserving. I couldn't wait to leave.
