Good but not great. A bit underseasoned for my taste. Very noisy crowd near by was annoying. Somewhat over priced for what it was but hey, this is upscale Manhattan. Not many bargains around here.

It was crowded and loud, but it seemed authentically NYC and Italian. I'd count it as an experience in and of the city. The food was ok, too.

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 service is horrible. The food was OK, but costly. I would suggest eating elsewhere.

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.

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.
