    Impromptu dinner with my sons and some friends after a wet Saturday in Manhattan. Greeted at the door by Antonio who had taken our reservation. Immediately seated at corner table with white linen tablecloths. Antonio served us drinks and reviews the specials including their famous gelato salad. We ordered that, plus 3 other salads and 4 pastas to share (6 men, 2 women and we were hungry) then entrees. Every dish we tasted was outstanding! I had veal while my wife had the cioppino—outstanding! We even shared their dessert specials as well! Great restaurant, great food, close to Times Square (easy walk), great wines and outstanding service! Highly recommend!!!!

    The staff was Very Attentive and kind. Often filling water glasses, allowed our nephew to join us for a short while, and to do his work afterwards on the outdoor porch, while we were still eating. Above and Beyond. Food was fantastic and reasonable, delicious wine, great salads, and wonderful Pappardelle with meat sauce, and chicken parm. We will be back again!

    My wife and I dine frequently in and around the city and this restaurant is a very strong contender for “I’d like to eat there again and try something else”. This isn’t any great “value find”, nor is it some eye catching interior beauty. However the service was solid and attentive, the decor acceptable, the location “ok”. The food portions were “moderate” but the food quality was excellent. If portions were larger then this review could be 4.5 stars easily. My wife’s chicken pounded paper thin and sautéed to perfection. My black squid with seafood had just the right “bite” with the sauce and was devoured by myself. The pricing is “ok” but it is Manhattan and wasn’t truly “out of line”. If you’re looking for a quiet, quality Italian meal in NYC, I’d recommend giving this restaurant a try.

    The food is DELICIOUSSSS!! I had the ravioli with pink vodka sauce and lobster meat and it was incredibly good. I was eating just the sauce after finishing all the ravioli. For dessert we had chocolate cake with a melting center with ice cream, genuinely one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. The staff was kind and warm. I ate here with my mom and we loved it and vowed to come back every time she visits nyc!

    Very nice staff. The arancini was delicious. Burrata special meh. We ordered ravioli in pink sauce - minus the lobster meat and they still charged the same price. I find that odd. Chicken Milanese was not crispy at all. I wouldn’t recommend or go back unfortunately. Cannolis we’re delicious though

    The device was excellent but the food was mediocre. The bread was basic and dry, the salad had almost no dressing and the cavatelli with eggplant was bitter. The chicken parm was ok but seemed like it wasn’t properly seasoned before cooking.

    We dined at 5pm before going to a show so it was quiet. Wonderful food, persuaded to try the red onion ice cream salad with grilled shrimp as a starter which was awesome then Frito di Mare as main which similarly excellent - fresh pasta makes a huge difference. My wife meanwhile went for egg plant starter then a pasta with sweet sausage which also got good review. Thoroughly recommend - great and attentive staff too. Very understated from the outside but don’t judge the book by it’s cover. Loved it. PS - we are in New York for an Anniversary Break and at the end of the meal we were very kindly given a dessert sharer on the house - also fantastic!

    The restaurant is amazing. The Food, service, atmosphere are excellent. Antonio is a fantastic owner/manager. He cares about his customers and ensures that everyone is extremely satisfied with their food. I have been there 3 times already and plan to return every time that I am in the city to see a Broadway show or want an excellent meal. PS .. the gelato salad and the beet fettuccine are absolutely delicious as are all of the dishes served at this restaurant. It is not to be missed.
