    I always get the ceasar salad with chicken. The chicken is very flavorful and tender and the salad is fresh.

    This is my near Grand Central go to restaurant for meeting friend for lunch in the city. I’ve been going there for years for personal and business lunches. Food is good and pricing average for midtown Manhattan. Generally not too overcrowded. It can be noisy do get a table nearer the window or back wall if you can

    I was surprised that I was not accommodated with the following easy requests: 1. Can I have gluten free pasta - waiter said "it will take at least 25 minutes to prepare" What? cooking times are same for regular pasta. 2. can we have half meatball appetizer with cheese, and other half without? waiter said " the chef will not like that, no it's not possible." again, horrible service and when we got 4 separate bread pieces of apps, my request could have easily been accommodated. This is unacceptable in NY let alone anywhere else.

    The eggplant mozzarella was good but the shrimp asparagus risotto was as bland, closer to paella style rice than risotto - not at all creamy.

    As always, the service was terrific, and I love that the kitchen is always very accommodating for special requests. The Chicken Marsala was the biggest hit on the table with chicken tender enough to cut with a fork.

    Possibly the worst Italian food I've ever eaten. Saffron in a mushroom risotto? What?
