There were 9 of us for brunch so that sat us upstairs and it was perfect. I made the reservation and the other 8 people couldn’t stop raving and said it is our new place for brunch get together s. Great brunch menu, the waitress couldn’t have been nicer and attentive . All round a wonderful experience.

Very disappointed in overall experience. Staff was wonderful--but food was terrible. Ordered a glass of chianti and they didn't have ANY?? An italian wine bar and they were out of chianti?????
The ceasar salad lettuce was limp and old. Bread on table also tasted stale. Entree---pasta, chicken parm and steak were all SUB-PAR. Would not return.

My family was in town for a wedding, and we were worried about finding a restaurant that could fit 11 people on a Friday night without being super expensive. Even though we arrived almost 15 minutes early, the table was ready for us. Service was great and the food was delicious. They were also able to accommodate the people in our party who are gluten-free.

Great food and service! Playlist is fantastic as well but a patron did get up and change the music... probably not a good idea to allow access like that 🤷‍♀️

Great meatballs and parm Sunday is a good special. Good wines and spirits. Neighbors place. Tagliatelle bolognese was a disappointment. Too few noodles and they were mushy. Not cool!

Our table was not ready when we arrived. Service was slow and because the front is a bar more attention placed there.
Food was good but not up to my expectations as it was recommended by our hotel.

Somehow they just missed the mark this evening. Squid ink linguine was pastey. I asked if the chef could tone down the heat (spice) a bit, and it came out mild as in NO heat. But the bread was delish as was the flatbread pizza. Waited a long to get the check, finally just asked.

I've been to many neighbor restaurants in NY; this one is near the top of the list. I rated it 5 stars from service to quality of food and choices on the menu along with the specials. The only small negative was that it was somewhat noisy. The place is small, which I like, but the busy bar and lack of noise absorbing decor created that. I would definitely go back; in fact I can't wait to return.
