One of the most fun, lively Italian restaurants I’ve ever been to. The service, food and presentations were all
Spot on. Love the 3 dips served with the bread. If Gluten Free bread was available, my dinner would have been a 10, just like my dinner- mates who are not Gluten Free

We were so totally delighted with the service we received from the greeter to the busboys to the chef! Each person was warm and welcoming and as accommodating as he could be. The food was all delicious and fresh, but it was the warmth of the service that made SUCH a difference! What a pleasure! We will all go back again...and again.

A lovely dinner here for our first night in NYC. Service was attentive and the food was authentic and magnificent. We had the tuna tartare appetizer special and two pasta dishes. My husband had the black spaghetti mussels and clams special and I had the tagliatelle from the menu. Both were homemade pasta and magnificent. We had a beautiful bottle of Italian wine from a large and diverse wine list. Highly recommended. We spied two celebrities while we were there so we aren’t the only ones who think this is a great place!

Great food and even better service. House made pasta. Wide variety on the menu. Food arrives quickly (seems like 10 people in that modest kitchen). Indoor and outdoor dining options. Fair prices.

We went here for a birthday dinner and it was such a memorable experience. The salad was refreshing and delicious, as was the grilled calamari! The pasta was unique and incredibly tasty! Definitely a great spot for a little celebration :). 10/10 recommend!

i reserved a table outside and it was honored on email
however arriving at the restaurant, I was told first come first served for outside....
not a good start... but the staff and food made up for this hitch and I love the place
I will return often.

Beautiful place and great location. Feels like we're in a cafe in Italy right in the middle of Manhattan. We were greeted kindly and service was excellent. Food was excellent and beautifully presented, very fresh ingredients. Delicious and good value.

Our dinner was so good. From the antipasti of carpaccio and duets di bruschetta to the pasta of ravioli di ossobuco to the secondi of branzino, it was Italian bliss. Our wines of Bourgogne and brunello were the perfect pairing to make. We were complimented delicious cannolis to go along with our limoncello. Erica was the perfect hostess adding even more Italian authenticity to our fabulous Italian meal.

I made reservations in the morning for party of 3 at 2:15pm . Specific requested outdoor seating . When we arrived. The male Manager said there is nothing available outside. I said ok . But I made reservation for outside! And he’s said “ SO ? “ meaning. So what you made reservations! We got seated inside and the food is delicious! But that attitude is horrible! I probably won’t come back again ! If you don’t take requests. Don’t take reservations at all !
