 (Greensboro)·Dined 4 days ago

Our waitress was very professional and maintained contact with us throughout the meal. At the end of our meal my wife mentioned that her snapper entree was missing caper berries and the waitress said she would mention it to the chef. Moments later she returned and said we were correct and left small glasses of prosecco with us as an apology.

Always wonderful pasta and entrees. Appetizer bar -- can't resist the eggplant caponata! And the surprise hot out of the oven cookies are a treat!

 (Los Angeles)·Dined 5 days ago

We originally scheduled it as a dinner before attending the opera later that night. But 2 out of 4 in our party got sick and could not attend but the restaurant kindly reschedule it earlier to accommodate just the 2 of us so we do not have to rush out before the opera. We chose this place because of its location close to the Lincoln center and its diverse menu including many vegetable antipasto plates. The place is lively (especially for us older folks) and the wait staff are accommodating and nice. However, the food is really quite average. We picked 6 different kinds of vegetables and they tasted very similar (drenched in olive oil.) The braised squid dish was overcooked but the beef ribs entrée was tasty. We picked deliberately and wanted a wine from an obscure Italian region (which I do not remember the name now) and it turned out to be an awful selection which is essentially our fault. Did not try any pasta/pizza dish so cannot comment on it.

We had lunch here before going to the Downton Abbey exhibit around the corner. Four of us had the prix fix lunch and it was good. We didn’t have the pizza but it looked amazing. Meatballs were nothing special. Vegetable soup with poached egg was also very good. At end of meal, they come around with fresh baked cookies, that’s a lovely touch.

Not up to standards set in several prior visits. Service was almost nonexistent even tho maitre’d had said it was our guest’s birthday. Food was only so-so and over priced. We were not offered the customary prosecco nor the chocolates at dessert. We were actually embarrassed that we had taken our friend there for her birthday. The restaurant’s only saving grace is it’s close proximity to Carnegie Hall.

Have only eaten there for lunch, but the pizza was the best thin crust I have ever had. The chopped salad was fabulous. The wait staff was very friendly, just a bit slow, although we were not rushing so it was fine. I look forward to returning for dinner!

We attended the Downton Abbey exhibit, this was a perfect spot as it is around the corner. Lunch special is a good deal, my friends were more than satisfied with the branzino and burrata ravioli. I ordered the fennel sausage and roaster pepper pizza, it came out cold but was huge. I've had better pizza, The shock came when we ordered dessert and received the bill. The dessert tray was brought to us with no mention of prices. $11/single canoli that was not that large and $16 for a Tartufo. RIDICULOUS costs even for NYC!

The food was average. Bread with some plain olive oil on the side was boring. Dinner was fine but nothing spectacular. Spaghetti with White Clam Sauce and the clams were small and only two in shell. Sauce was a little bland. Even some fresh chopped parsley would help. Lasagna that was very heavy although the sauce had good flavor. No garnishes to make the plates look good and you do eat with your eyes first. The best part was the old school energy of the place....busy, bustling fun italian and chatty staff. It just would have been better if the food matched that. The coat check person, hosts and waiters all had great energy.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on January 14, 2018

We dine here frequently, but last night was so bad, I cannot imagine returning anytime soon or ever for that matter. Warning, NEVER sit upstairs. Wait for a table on the main floor. You are forgotten on the 2nd floor and not only the servers their b group, but they have a long hike to the Kitchen. Waited for bread for 20 minutes, no knives when the food came. By the time the knives came, the Food had become room temperature. This is not an inexpensive restaurant and it is unacceptable to have such poor service. I am aware there are a lot of favorable reviews, but, what an awful night. If you are 6’ or over, if you sit upstairs, it is like a dollhouse and not a good one. Sorry, but we took the time to write because it was that bad.

Food was excellent although we would have appreciated being advised that the size of the portions was beyond generous. Service was very friendly but not first tier. The waitress offered a muffin and then started to place it directly on the table; had to stop her and ask for a plate for it. Tea cooled before we could get the requested cream. Prior experiences have been much better.

The moment my wife and I walked in we were greeted by a friendly waiter who gave us a glass of Proseco! We sat in a very nice and cozy area of the restaurant. The appetizers were delicious as was the entree. For desert we ordered the Trimasu and chocolate mouse, both were made in the restaurant and were out of this world. The wines that we ordered were very nice and good paring with our food. The entire staff was very friendly and professional. We would certainly recommend this restaurant .

Server was personable and took the time to have a short conversation with us. Little things like this make a huge difference. No one makes better cannoli!

Loved this establishment! Greeted by the maitre d with a BUONASERA and an offer of coat check. Packed house but never felt neglected. Joey D aka young Tony DeVito was our waiter and he was the best. Ordered the Pesto Ravioli and it was delicious. Joey highly recommended the canoli ("best in the city") and it did not disappoint. Only complaint is that the tables are a bit too close together but other than that I would highly recommend

Excellent Italian food, rapid attentive service but the crowd was really the overwhelming component, and while service handled it well despite SRO numbers, it detracted somewhat from overall pleasure of the experience. So, less than perfect but still very good and I'd go back - just not during the Holidays.
