The restaurant’s mood was exactly as their customers, festive! We had a wonderful waiter, Amadeus, who was very attentive. He made sure our food was hot, our glasses full and we were smiling. My family and I felt fortunate to be there and we will go back.

It took 20 min to get a glass of wine. I asked for the bill so many times my husband had to get up and look for someone to get it from. And even though I understand there was a lot of people !! That’s NEVER the way to treat people!! NEVER GOING BACK AGAIN. If you want to enjoy your day donnot recommend.

It is NYC. Wines by the glass $14.00 so you may want to check out the menu before you visit. With so many of our regular Little Italy spots being pushed out; have to keep trying new places, this will be one.

I ordered the gnocchi, which melted in your mouth. Inside decor wasnt very fancy if you're looking for a romantic evening but if you're just having a night with friends or family, it's fine. Portions were much bigger than I've seen at upscale italian restaurants!

This restaurant, although listed as an opted in restaurant to the rewards program said they don’t accept the rewards. I ended up paying for the whole bill, when I should have only paid half. I wouldn’t have gone here if I would have known that. Why? When there’s a restaurant down the street offering free wine and sangria. Spoke to open table customer support who said that this restaurant is fully aware they are opted in and they lose no money from this since it is as good as any other master card gift card. The owner said they don’t type in credit card numbers. Bad Business. Little Italy is too competitive to have bad Business and all I could think about was how many other people this has happened to... DONT GO THERE IF YOU HAVE A REWARDS! In all fairness, service was great. Loved my server, so I made sure I gave him a good tip and the food was good. I wouldn’t go there again based on principal. But being a New Yorker, this just shows you why people are always wary of things, because these types of incidences happen.
