Really busy at 2p today, very few open tables... Almost to busy in these times. Ordered the truffle omelette and added the pancetta bacon and then the king crab hash. The hash looked more like an app sized dish but delicious. Food was great overall and service excellent.

the food was absolutely amazing. We were a group of four and we all ordered different kinds of pasta and they were all phenomenal in their own right. I think we all were still dreaming about the dessert the next day. HANDS DOWN BEST ITALIAN IN THE STATES!

They did a great job of socially distancing the restaurant. Christian was a phenomenal server and I would recommend him to anyone! Food was amazing as always, get the gnocchi, you won’t be disappointed.

At first I questioned the price, but everything I had was completely worth it. Our server patiently and kindly answered my abundance of questions and requests for suggestions. They know food. I’m convinced.

My absolute favorite Italian in the city. Add to it the lovely staff and patio heaters and I would dine here everyday!! Also great for special occasions. Indoors is kind of loud so stay outside!

The food was good, -octopus- but the service was mediocre from start to finish. He even gave us the wrong check and we waited another 10 minutes to get the correct one!

In this day of COVID, this felt like a real restaurant experience, despite ample spacing and plenty of plexiglass. Food is excellent, and it was a fun night out.

Meh.. picked this place because their menu was somewhat unusual and interesting. Had truffle garlic pizza and squid ink pasta, pasta was very overcooked and was very blend. It was really bad.. Mushroom pizza was ok but nothing special. Place looked nice but if you can’t make flavorful dishes, why bother.

Everything was great except that we had to wait almost an hour even with a reservation. People sitting outside would not leave and we had to wait for a long time to be seated.

We just had a wonderful dinner here this evening. My squid linguine was amazing!!!! Our friends short ribs were so tender, they were able to cut them with a fork. Although my husband's crab spaghetti was also good, he was quite disappointed when he saw & tasted their short ribs! Our socialite & hot toddy drinks was the icing on the cake! I can't forget about my kale Caesar salad that I said I'll come back for anytime!!!

We sat outdoors and really enjoyed our cocktails (the black Manhattan was fantastic!) and dinner (gnocchi is highly recommended). Amy was our server and she was wonderful!

Always an excellent dining experience. Great service and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the burrata and carbonara in a jar. Our favorites were the sausage and brussels sprouts pizza and the brick chicken.

The food here is always great, but we sat outside and I asked our server to turn up the heaters 3x and he said he would. He didn't. I froze my *** off. It will not keep you from going here.

This review is based on food and experience decor and ambience are 4 stars after being seated our total wait time to be greeted by a server which I had to ask a manager for was a total of 19 minutes , waiter was mediocre The restaurant didn’t seem that Busy for the service to be that slow, the food did come out fast , Drinks were ok I had to hunt down server to take my order and get my check the food was ok I would not return ,,,,, we ended up going across the street to Harry Carey’s where we received better service and turned our night around.
