    Went for a business meeting and was very pleased. It was quiet enough to be able to hold a conversation without having to shout. The food was good and the ease of ordering and paying was pretty streamline.

    Service very poor. They didn’t bring any bread to start, they brought three of five entrees out 30 minutes after our salads, the another 20 minutes for the remaining two entrees. The whole time people are going up and dow the stairs to a downstairs nightclub that was playing loud obnoxious techno music. The food was good but everything else was not. Maybe it was a bad night for them but we probably won’t go back.

    We used a voucher from Pulsd ($59 for a bottle of wine, appetizer, 2 entrees, and dessert) so the value of our meal was fantastic. However, when we arrived to the restaurant and showed our pass the manager almost refused to sit us? I had mentioned that I called in two weeks prior (had phone receipts to prove it) and that all of his so called “stipulations” he came up with didn’t apply to the current situation. He kept saying 300+ people were coming in for a party and we wouldn’t be able to get a table (even though we were the first patrons there at 7:30pm) Food was decent for the value but would not eat here again.

    DO NOT EAT HERE. I like to give restaurants the benefit of the doubt but this was actually the worst experience I’ve ever had in my life. I would never recommend anyone to eat at this place. All you will do is sit for 1.5+ hours and leave without food. This isn’t just my one bad review. Please read the other reviews and don’t make the mistake that I did.

    Love this place so much, it’s become one of my favorite spots in the city. I’ve spent many dinners here and never had a bad experience, and the servers are always so kind and attentive. Most importantly the food is friggin AMAZING. I’m usually the type who always gets the same thing on the menu when I’ve found a place I like because I don’t like taking a risk and trying something I end up not liking, but I’m pretty sure I’ve tried something new every time I’ve come here and I’ve loved it all. You just can’t go wrong there.

    Food was incredible! The only complaint was how slow the service was. There was only 1 waiter for roughly 10 tables, so we were never able to order an additional drink or even dessert.

    food wasn’t great, but the servers were nice. definitely don’t go here if you’re looking for the gluten free pasta. the pasta was undercooked and the sauces could’ve used more seasoning.

    Definitely one of the better restaurants in Little Italy. The food was amazing, the music and ambience was exactly what I was looking for, and my waiter Caesar was one of the nicest waiters I've had in my entire dining experience. I Definitely recommend this place if you're in Little Italy

    We went on a day when there was an Italian soccer game going on so the idea of having a quiet dinner went out the window. Constant yelling and cheering. Service was terrible. Food wasn’t worth what you pay for.

    Waited 3 hours to get undercooked food. Also the drinks we got were incorrect and we had to go out of our way to place the drink order/get refills. Worst service I’ve ever had. Food was below average.

    There are so many reasons why we loved our experience at this gorgeous restaurant. First of all was the welcoming staff, from the gracious italian host/manager to the attentive waiter and friendly Busser that kept our water glasses and bread basket full trough the all dinner. The special linguine with lobster was the most delicious we ever had in our entire life! No kidding! The sauce was perfectly reduced and the portion was generous and satisfying! (My husband is a chef and an usually difficult customer when eating at restaurants and he was really impressed by the quality of work that they put on the dish!). We will be back every time we’re in the area and we will recommend to all our friends and family! Bravissimi!!!

    The food was very good, we enjoyed sitting at an outside table watching the activity on Mulberry Street but we had the worst waiter ever… He was very rude . He brought us a wrong cocktail and got angry when we pointed out the mistake. He took 3 out of 4 of our food orders but walked away before taking our fourth friend’s order. When we called him back to take her order , he snapped his fingers and said “Rapido” (in other words - hurry up & tell me your order). Luckily the owner was there and very attentive and when we explained the rudeness of our waiter, he said he is short handed & can’t get anyone else to work right now . We enjoyed our food so we would return as long as we have a different waiter …Hopefully they replace him soon (the table across from us had the same guy & were also treated poorly) We didn’t let it ruin our night since the other employees were very friendly and helpful and we asked them when we needed things knowing that our waiter was obviously having a very bad night.

    We went for a graduation dinner with a voucher from Pulsd, we made the reservation and the owner proceeded to literally curse us out when we mentioned we had it. The server also had the worst attitude. The food was mediocre at best. Will never return.

    the best dinner I ever had. the food it's impressive, awesome staff and beautiful ambience. the bruschetta Pomodoro was crunchy and full of flavor in full Italian style. the pizza oh my god the best in Little Italy. the Gnocchi was incredible, the sauce had so much flavor on it, reminds me my grandma. the staff was fun and very nice, very good service, they will take care of you with the gorgeous homemade focaccia they gave at the start of the dinner. I will definitely come back here ♥♥
