Very pleased with this restaurant! Service great and food was delicious
Great! Delicious food; great service. Nice ambience
Fresh delicious pasta with several options to please everyone. The wine was fantastic, the food was great. The service was exceptional.
Excellent Italian Food, lovely wait staff. Brought me the wrong cocktail and upcharged me but besides that, a truly beautiful place for a delicious meal.
Delicious food, excellent service and very nice outdoor space.
Felt like the waiter was doing us a favor y being our waiter. Saw a bug as it happens sitting outside, but we’re unaccommodating about it.
Excellent all around ! Food is amazing, Fusili with sausage and eggplant was off the charts !
Great food as usual !
Service and food were amazing! Will definitely go again
Sat outside in their very nicely appointed seating area. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Food was excellent. Perfect portion sizes
This restaurant ruined my whole night. Was absolute trash. Don’t waste your time or money
Started with fennel and blood orange salad which was crisp, light and zingy.
The spaghetti con guanciale e carciofi was densely rich and satisfying. My dinner mate was equally happy with her insalata d' spinaci and it's sweet tidbits of watermelon and her tonnarelli cacio e pepe. We drank a truly lovely bottle of Nebbiolo with it all. We will return.
Too pricey for an average food joint.
Excellent Italian food and service in NYC! Highly recommend.
The staff here was fantastic - very attentive, helpful, and funny! We didn't know it was restaurant week and ended up ordering from that menu. Zucchini blossoms to start, cacio e pepe for entree, and warm espresso chocolate cake. Zucchini blossoms and and the cake were very good, but the cacio e Pepe was one of the best I've ever had! We had a delicious red wine from Piedmont. Great service, great night, can't wait to come back here again.
A winner in every way - will definitely go back for more!
The owner/chef was extremely kind and accommodating when it turned out that I had misread the information about restaurant week.
The ambiance, food, and service were all outstanding.
I hope to visit again soon for a special occasion.
Came for my 30th birthday dinner and had a fabulous meal! Food was delicious, cocktails were fantastic, and service was excellent and fun.
Service was extremely slow and when the food came it had been under heat lamps long enough to dry out on top. Overpriced, only fair food. Had to ask 3x for a bottle of wine we ordered.
So... everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. We waited for 45 minutes after ordering (appetizers and entrees) and finally asked where our food was-- apparently they lost the ticket so they had to start from scratch. We ended up eating 1.25 hours into our meal. There was a huge group (15 people) next to us that was so loud we could barely hear each other talk. One guy at a neighboring table got so annoyed that he literally yelled across the restaurant "WOULD YOU SHUT THE F**K UP???" We had to ask for our check several times... it was just a disaster. The pasta on the cacio was also overcooked and there was so much pepper I had to drink water every few bites (has never been a problem for me before).
Amazing spot, authentic food, can't wait to come back!
Very overpriced for the quality of food. We all got stomach aches after dinner. I would never go back.
Love everything about this place. Food is incredible and the staff is really great!
Great food and service! My favorite restaurant!!
Great service and ambience but just average food - super average for what it costs.
The $39 restaurant week deal is worth it. Such a good deal and amazing pastas. I definitely was full when I was done.
This is only my second time being here and I’ve made it a priority to go here as a birthday tradition… I was very excited to have all my friends share this special day with me and unfortunately service was not as amazing as it was for my first visit… during my first visit the manager personally took care of us and was beyond polite since the party was only a 2 person party we only spent around $120. For my second visit which was just 2 days ago on 7/20, our waitress was decent, but seemed a bit snobby; this time around I reserved a table of 5 and we spent over $300, being a waitress you’d think she’d get excited about the tipping situation right? We told her she could keep the change, and she gave us our change back regardless. When my friend tried to give her the change and say “no this is your tip” she said “I don’t need it” as if our money isn’t good enough for her and we’re too poor to tip… i’ve never felt so disrespected in my life. Honestly this place is amazing, so if you go make sure you ask the host for a table that isn’t serviced by the one female waiter
Outstanding appetizers grilled octopus and caprese and pasta. But the entrees left much to be desired. Very salty salmon and not fresh branzino (fishy smell) left the dish hard to eat!
Hi there, thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that the two main dishes were not as outstanding as the rest of the meal. While the salty salmon could have been the chef mistake, we pride ourselves in ensuring that our ingredients are of the highest quality and freshness Please come back with your lovely family and let us make it right
The waiter showed exceptional knowledge about the wine list and food menu. Service was prompt and accurate. Food was cooked to perfection and the spices were perfect!
Incredibly helpful staff, we LOVED our dishes - the Caprese and the Mushroom Pasta w/ Truffle Oil. The only thing to consider isn't really their fault - the outdoor seating isn't completely in front of the restaurant, and you feel like you're sitting in the sidewalk, with people walking by, etc. This is, of course, exactly what you're doing, so there you go. There is a second row of outdoor tables that is a little more separated from passers-by. Overall a great experience, with the food being what will draw us back more than anything, and in second position being the staff.
Food here is always great! Friendly, lively, environment. Gracious hostess.
We had our usual terrific experience. Food and wine were great and the prices reasonable. Boca is a great neighborhood place. If you live in the Flatiron district or nearby do yourself a favor and check it out.
Great service, generous portions, and delicious food.
Amazing!!!! Delicious food, great atmosphere and super friendly stuff 💗
Cacio Pepe was excellent. Service was great. Good wine by the glass selection.
Great service & incredible, authentic Italian food! Will be coming back for sure!
My niece and her husband were in from out of town and I wanted to take them to a “non touristy “ Italian restaurant. This place was perfect! The experience was most enjoyable from the friendly host to the wait staff. The food was fantastic and I will definitely return.
Had a swell time and we will return. The food was amazing and so was the drinks.
The food was DELISH. Service was perfection. Loved everything about this cute place!
The food was SO SALTY we couldn’t eat either entree. Asked for a lemonade/ice tea mix and got cloudy tea with a lemon in it. Seating is awkward if you’re in the middle section, tables are small & both people sit on the same side to conserve space.
Would not go back.
