Worst experience I had in New York!! Disrespectful & unorganized staff.
The restaurant was packed and didn’t have a table for us even if we had a reservation. They asked us to wait outside in the cold for 5 then 15min to get our table. After waiting for almost 40min when asked when we can get a table they told us that they need 15 other minutes. At some point we saw them giving tables to new guests that arrived after us, once we said that wasn’t normal (since we had a reservation and were there for a long time). The manager was extremely rude and told us that this wasn’t McDonald and we need to wait… he was really disrespectful and after waiting for an hour we just left! Worst experience I had in New York and I would NOT recommend this restaurant at all!

I was incredibly underwhelmed by the food. The ambience was nice, but service was slow and my dinner essentially was a salted chicken cutlet with arugula. Not worth the price.

Food was quite poor and below the levels of what we would cook at home. The lasagna was unrecognizable and the pasta had a unpleasant smell to it. I usually don't write any reviews but this one I had to point out.

My husband and I really liked this place. My husband knows Italian food, and this is the real deal. The ambiance on a Tuesday night was laid back. We ate inside and were pleased that the restaurant did a mandatory vaccination check. Service was excellent.

Much more than a wine bar... They serve excellent Italian food, from the island of Sardinia. Enjoyed the Vermentino, and the panne carasau, vitello tonnato, and fregola. Outdoor seating was pleasant thought adjacent to a busy street.

We enjoyed ourselves here a lot. We reserved inside, but when we got there the outside looked very inviting and they offered us a choice so we chose outside. It was very pleasant and the parade of Williamsburg was in full force. We had a few different wines by the glass and decided on a favorite, so then we got a bottle. The food was good--I had crostone with pistacchio pesto and DH had the meatballs as appetizers, then we had a couple of pasta dishes that went well with the red we had selected. No decaf coffee, definitely a sad thing, but desert was good. The whole place was vibrant and the service was charming.

AWFUL MUSIC PLEASE CHANGE IT!! Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Will return if they change the music to be more appropriate for Italian dining. They played top 40 house music. I think Cardi B was also played during our romantic dinner. Please save this music for the after party. Williamsburg is a younger crowd (we are a young couple) but that doesn’t mean we want club music while we’re on a date.
