Suggestion: Make sure you make a reservation before you go. After 7, This place really fills up. Great intimate restaurant with wonderful Italian comfort food. In the center of smith street you get service.

Our order was sour, off or expired (burrata). We have had this dish in many restaurants and have never returned food but in this case we returned it. No big deal...

Then the chef came out to argue with us, telling us we are “wrong” and that it’s imported from Italy. We said no problem but there are many opportunities for dairy imported from Italy to go bad. He made it a much bigger deal than it needed to be.

The rest of the food was ok (nothing amazing) and we waited over 20 minutes to get the bill. They tried to charge us for the dish we returned. No apology, no humility.

I wouldn’t come back.

We weren't sure what to expect from a restaurant that aspires to evoke a feel of the Amalfi Coast--ambitious, to say the least. They delivered. The food was excellent! We loved the risotto, the spaghetti with zucchini and the baby octopus. It was BYOB but a liquor license was forthcoming. I look forward to going back.
