Outstanding food and service. Best experience to date on Arthur Ave. Great advice on food and wine! Lamb chops out of this world. So popular they ran out:-( But while having our mains, our waiter came with 2 baby lamb chops as a comp dish and apologized that there weren't enough left for a full entree!!! Nice touch. Will definitely be back.

Went for an early Christmas Eve dinner after the NYBG train show. We were earlier than our reservation but were still seated promptly. We chose to sit in the brighter front room at the window. Vax proof was checked and all staff were wearing masks. Yay! We ordered 3 apps-calamari, arancini and prosciutto mozzarella. All delish! Mains ordered were Lasagna (special), scarpariello and lamb chops with broccoli rabe. Oh my, so good! Desserts were cheesecake, tiramisu and a vanilla ice cream with espresso. We also had 3 drinks each. Since it was before 4pm we were still on the “lunch menu”. Total bill was $234! Bargain for such a great meal. Definitely will be back! Thanks Fiasco!

Great restaurant stop before our trip to the Bronx Zoo holiday light show. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Our server even put on the Giants game on his iPad so that our 8 year old could watch the game while we very much enjoyed our meal with friends! We will definitley be back!

We liked our appetizers: fresh mozzarella, crispy calamari, tasty octopus. Caesar's salad dressing was not made from scratch, veal scaloppini was on the tough side, though chicken parmigiana and prosciutto panini were good.
Service was efficient and attentive. So altogether it was a decent meal with affordable price tag. We dined from 3:30 till 5pm and it was quite noisy at first, then it got much quieter by 5pm.

Food was outstanding and great value. Ambiance was perfect for a dinner to catch up with friends by not being too hectic or loud inside. They were also very polite with checking vaccine cards at the door.

Great service, good food! The restaurant was able to accommodate my mother in law’s gluten free pasta request and delivered on my online request (via open table) for a gluten free cake for her birthday, I didn’t need to remind them. We will definitely be back!

Overall - nice experience. We sat outside with our 3 young kids and they were accommodating. I had the Mafalde Cavolfiore and it was amazing. My wife had the linguini clams and she was underwhelmed to be honest. Kids were all happy :)

Nice quiet dinner outdoors late Saturday evening. Food was excellent, even if the menu was somewhat limited. Tasty, fresh fried calamari, chicken and veal were both well done. Very friendly service, and after 8:00 Arthur Ave. is fairly quiet, even on a Saturday.

The food was good, but a little underwhelming. Nice atmosphere. Friends and I shared the fried calamari, baked clams (which were whole, not chopped), penne vodka, burrata, side of broccoli rabe, and then cheesecake for dessert. At the end of our meal, we received a limoncello shot "on the house." I would give the staff and atmosphere 4 stars, but the food overall a 3.5.

The Albanian waiter, Klajdi, was wonderful and he split the meals at the table for myself and two friends. He was friendly and attentive, pouring our wine as soon as our glass needed it. However, this restaurant did not give an authentic Italian feel that I expected other than the outside seating area, which was nice.

Fried Calamari: 8/10 - Crunchy, small, fresh, and delicious
Baked Clams Oreganata: 7/10- A little dry, but surprisingly an actual whole clam rather than chopped
Penne Ala Vodka: 7/10- Very heavy, filling, al dente, and WAY too heavy on the scallions
Burrata: 7/10- semi-melted over chopped eggplant-not that flavorful
Broccoli Rabe: 8/10 nice portion for a side
Cheesecake: 7/10- not that fresh
House Cabernet Sauvignon Wine: 9/10 - full-bodied, smooth red wine
