I’ve been here a few times, COVID hasn’t changed the atmosphere, service, or food quality at all. Still one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the city.

The spaghetti with sea urchin was sub par. Clearly frozen sea urchin splattered with butter to hide. Service and ambiance excellent

The food was amazing as usual but definitely reconsider if you are going for outdoor dining. the heaters aren’t that strong especially if you are sitting at a table far from it.

This place is very cute and the outdoor seating is well-decorated with heaters and pillows. It is definitely a must try Italian place in the NYC area, probably one of the best pasta I had in the States. Customer service was on point as well.

I had the Paccheri Gamberi (tube-like pasta with red shrimp and zucchini flowers). The pasta is chewy and fresh with a light tomato sauce topped with zucchini flower to finish it off. Perfect place for date night or friends gathering. “Aldente is key.”

The food was wonderful! The Cacio e Pepe was the best I ever had! The ragu tagliatelle was missing something, maybe an acidic element but I think it was just overshadowed by how amazing the cacio was. The server was fantastic, very knowledgeable and attentive and the food came out very fast and steaming hot! Would definitely recommend for a night out.

Best Sicilian food outside Sicily! The arancini was crispy on the outside and full of delight. The seafood was fresh and prepared just right. The cannolis are the real thing. Great Sicilian wine choices, some great vinyards I just do not see elsewhere. The staff are very customer-focused and don't leave you wanting for anything...great buzz to the place!

We went here for lunch. In this age of pandemic, this restaurant is providing excellent food and excellent service. The tables were well spaced from each other, and the staff was attentive to all aspects of service, including their masks at all time. I will not to hesitate to return here very soon for another delicious luncheon experience.

Overall pretty disappointed in how they are handling social distancing. The tables outside were not far enough away. There was a rowdy birthday party seated next to us and we felt very uncomfortable the entire time as those patrons were really drunk and getting up unmasked way too close to our table. Food was great, our server was great, but they need to tighten up on social distancing. They need to cut down on tables to ensure that each table can be at least 6 feet apart.

Although, inside did look perfectly distanced.
