Food is very good including pasta and pizza. Great ambiance- a great neighborhood restaurant. Our server was clueless. Asked for our order without telling us the specials. Drink order was wrong and she struggled with English.

A great neighborhood go to.

The hostess staff and bussers are phenomenal, super attentive and hard working.

The pasta was cooked to a great consistency, the flavor of their red sauce was beautiful. My boyfriend's fuselli was wonderful and he enjoyed the main. I think the most exceptional part were the strawberries, the first salad on the menu is a perfect size to split and divine the goat cheese is a beautiful texture and plenty to enjoy with the salad and berries. The strawberries were perfectly ripe and I wish I knew where to find them this time of year!

The wait staff it was a little painful. Our server frequently disappeared and forgot things. My boyfriend ordered a red wine with dinner and he'd had a cocktail before. I had to ask a bussers when my bf was 50% finished with his meal for the wine. After 10+ minutes and as he ate his last couple bites the wine arrived. My boyfriend is not the quick eater out of the two of us. We had to ask a busser for the check etc and the server to my recollection did not check on us at all except for if we wanted dessert.

We will try again since we had a later reservation on Valentine's day for the above experience.

Delicious takes on Italian food from classic pasta dishes to branzino, chops, salads, seafood, etc. Yummy desserts too. 2 kinds of octopus appetizers—carpaccio & grilled, crab cakes over sautéed mushrooms, House, Caesar & beet salads. Just scrumptious flavor & texture combinations. Great for early prix fixe for Lincoln Center. Large room for group event. Have always enjoyed the wine selections And they deliver meals too!

Go for the prix fixe from noon until 6. Great appetizer and main course options and tira misu for desert. A terrific deal

We enjoyed a wonderful meal for a special occaison with great service. Our servers were totally on top of things.. Our food was yummy.. great grilled calamari and the skirt steak was excellent..The place had a nice vibe. Only slight criticism... The drinks were the only 'so-so' for $15 my Old Fashioned was a squished orange in a glass with a little bit of burboun with a big cube. we will be back for sure.

Average food — nothing special. Had the artichoke salad and the artichokes tasted like they were from a jar. Chicken parmigiana was ok — just average. Pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe was also decent. Large party of screaming children sat next to us.

I’ve noticed a big chance since the management change and I prefer the old management style better. I’ve been a regular here for years and since the changeover feel that “locals” are often disregarded and not appreciated. The hostess, if one can be found at the table, is hardly welcoming and service is below par. Will seriously consider stop coming here if this continues as there are equally good Italian restaurants in the area.
