    This is my new favorite. This evening I began with ripe seasoned cherry tomatoes and burrata. It was my first time sampling Cacio e Pepe and believe I’ve been spoiled for the dish served anywhere else. I am always treated with warmth and respect.

    Very good food and good choice, maybe should have more options of mains which are not pasta but that’s individual opinion. As a world traveler the service on this occasion was not great. The waitress seemed not interested of her table at all. I must say that the commi waiter we had was great and he was making the most effort and was chatting to us.

    The food, both in quality and quantity, was quite variable. The veal chop Milanese was excellent and huge--easily big enough for two people, as was a swordfish appetizer special. On the other hand, a pasta dish was mediocre and normal sized.

    The one and only Siciliano restaurant in NYC! There can’t be anything better than listening to Italian being spoken, while eating a Sicilian fest. The complete experience Buona Fortuna!!

    We really like this place. It's our go-to when on the Upper East Side. Love the Cacio e Pepe, and tiramisu presentation (though the tiramisu espresso is a little bitter). Great wine selection. Great specials - had an amazing ribeye last night. Great simple and well-done food - we get the Penne Pomodoro and burrata every time.

    Lively, authentic trattoria-style spot. Very friendly hosts and servers. The service ranged from attentive to disappeared. Great menu, loved the caponata, but the pastas we tried (lasagna and pappardelle) were a bit on the heavy side. Would have enjoyed some lighter options. Overall, would return and try some other menu items.
