Monday night. Did not have a lot on the memo. No mozzarella so many dishes not available. Ran out of veggie ravioli and even creme brûlée. More than that the eye roll fit waiter and hand wave from manager when I said not a lot of left on menu for vegetarians was the reason I would never go back and suggest others do the same. Much better Italian restaurants with better people skills. Don’t waste your time.

Went there in a Saturday night to celebrate an anniversary. Place was packed and but was seated 5 min earlier than my reservation. Food and service were superb. Place has music in background but still able to carry on a conversation. I highly recommend this place.

We were staying across the river for a dance convention at the Meadowlands and so wanted a fun evening with teens in NYC. This place fit the bill. Easy to get to coming right from Lincoln tunnel. Food was delicious, our waiter and his support team were fabulous, super nice and incredibly attentive. Everyone was friendly. The restaurant was busy but with a very fun happy vibe. Lots of wine to choose from with a focus of Italian wines. We would definitely go again and again.

I had a nice grilled Branzino served with spinach. Crowd was lively and food on other plates looked good. We had a time factor so didn't get to have an appetizer or linger over dessert. Service was swift.

A very good restaurant in all respects. The wine was delicious (don’t take the most expensive!), the appetizers are quite nice and served more than generously. The pasta was also perfectly al dente.

Spaghetti Carbinara was way too greasy - stayed with me for a day.....Very loud sound system - not necessary - it was 1 pm, not 10:30 p. Servers were very friendly - the service bailed out the rest of the experience.

The food is good, except they didn’t have the squid ink pasta. The server said they will substitute with white pasta and it will taste the same. I was apprehensive, but I agreed to it. Big mistake! No comparison. The mushroom bruschetta, while still good, also didn’t taste as excellent as it used to taste.

Excellent family meal prior to a show. Food and service outstanding. A number of large tables were seated while we were there and that led to the noise level. Overall very good and we will go back.

The braised beef short ribs were fantastic they literally melted in your mouth. Our waiter was great, the service was efficient and friendly but not over bearing. The wine list had some great selections at reasonable NYC prices. We also enjoyed our desserts, a warm chocolate cake and an apple tart of some sort. Nice atmosphere, we come here often and they do not disappoint!

The food was good for some of orders. The specials were amazing and the intricate dishes were tasty but the basic dishes like the gnocchi were subpar. Also I did feel we were skimped from the fried calamari and fried zucchini appetizer order because they put more fried zucchini chips on the platter than the fried calamari.

Was visiting NY for the weekend and decided on this location based on reviews. My date really enjoyed her pasta dish (bolognese) and the sea bass was just average. I wished it was a bit more flavorful but still good nonetheless.

When we first sat down, the AC was dripping on me but I didn’t bother saying anything. The wait staff happened to notice me looking at the unit and offered to switch tables without having to ask, which I really appreciated.

Great wine options.

The food was delicious!!! Branzino melted in my mouth! Disappointed that lava cake was not available but the profiteroles were very good. My friend had a butter-sage sauce tortellini dish that was also excellent. Appreciated the Moet champagne by the glass at an ok price. Don't know why New York restaurants have to overcharge for an ice tea beverage - one of the cheapest beverages on the planet to make??? But the price here was better that the price charged earlier in the day at the Russian Tea Room!!!
