It was cold, really cold! But the food was great and the service stupendous. Big plates are always tough on small tables but they helped us make everything fit. Great fun but I may bring blankets next time!

I took my two boys there and ate outside—was lovely and the food was delicious! The boys devoured their pizza, and our waitress was lovely. They are already asking to go again. Very happy for this neighborhood gem.

Why are you always rushing customers to finish their dinner and leave?! It happened for the second time. I do not feel like having dinner again at your restaurant though I enjoy the food there.

We have limited outdoor seating due to pandemic related regulations, which is nowhere near our pre-pandemic operations. As a small business in this time, we have implemented time limits on tables as many other restaurants have and provide notice of such when you book on Open Table. This is why it is imperative for the entire party to arrive on time. Trust us, we do not enjoy having to limit the guest experience and hope this will no longer be necessary once the pandemic ends.

The food was an excellent value and the wait staff was very attentive. It was probably the coldest night we could have chosen, and were comfortable with our coats under the heater after a glass or two of wine!

Wonderful heated patio! I felt so warm and comfortable. I started with the salad with apples and corn - which was fresh and delicious. I then had the vegan mozzarella pizza with eggplant - amazing! And the chocolate mousse cake was terrific. The prices were very reasonable and the service was great. A total knockout - or gnoccout. Will be going back for more dining there this winter!

This is a diamond in the ruff! I came here and was so impressed with the food, service and ambiance!
This place packs a punch and I was so pleasantly surprised. The owner himself made sure to seat us and treat us as family as soon as we walked through the door.
Highly recommend! We came as a party of 3 and sitting outside in December the heaters moved and made it quite comfortable outside.
Will definitely come back! Please have a little of everything on the menu!

Outdoor dining experience was great. Very safe with partitions between tables and the side on sidewalk open for ventilation. Service was attentive and server was very pleasant and accommodating. Food was excellent. My friend’s salad was a little too salty and they took it away without charge. A great neighborhood restaurant. I have been here before and it’s always good and I will return!

Worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. I’ve actually never been told I am “out of my mind” or “shameful” by a proprietor for telling him we did not enjoy our drinks and would like for them to be taken off the menu. The food was abysmal at best and I am genuinely confused how he is in business. The “fusilli picante” consisted of raw chopped jalapenos tossed on top of costco shredded mozzarella that was simply cold and thrown on top of overcooked pasta. The gnocchi tasted like chef boyardee and was sticking to the roof of my mouth. Canned tomatoes were used in every dish and the chef couldn’t be bothered to season the sauce or take out the lumpy tomatoes from the can mixture. Probably the worst italian food in nyc and for their prices??? I could go to vapiano for a fraction of the price and at least have an edible meal. The owners behavior was actually attrocious and I have never experienced anything of the sort in my entire life! Cannot understand how the owner can scream at customers for complaining about their meal. This is new york... if you can’t handle complaining customers go back to italy where I’m sure they would put you in jail for the things you serve to people that you pretend to call food.

it was just a shame you waited until 10pm, the closing time due to pandemic restrictions, to make a complaint about every single item you ordered. You then refused to pay the bill twice with the waiter, who asked you several times if everything was good during the duration of your meal. We offered you a discount, which you refused but accepted at the end because we called the police. At 10:15pm you were still seated, laughing and making jokes to the staff and owner. Shame on you, scammers!!!
