The pasta was incredible and very reasonably priced. If you are looking for delicious Italian food near Penn Station then this is the place for you!

Great restaurant , food was superb, Ivan & Patricio our servers were very attentive and polite. Parking is difficult, but the parking lot across the street only charged $15.00 as we told him we were going to dinner here. Restaurant needs to put a larger sign or lit sign up for difficult to spot where it is. Noise is moderate, people friendly, food again was great. Prime rib eye and branzino were both perfect. Highly recommended.

I was a little concerned when I first arrived because there were not many other customers (Granted we had a late lunch reservation). However, the service was attentive and the food was very yummy. I would go back.

Pasta was delicious. Pizza could have been cooked longer as the dough wasn’t browned enough. All in all delicious.

I like this restaurant a lot. Everyone who works here is friendly. The waiter I had this last time was exceptional! Plus, the hostess is so nice and welcoming it makes the evening extra special. This is my go to place for a quick meal after work.

My wife and I took our two children (11 + 15 y.o.) here for a nice “new year” dinner. The food was excellent. Something for everybody. Everything was prepared beautifully, especially the fresh pasta, so good. Our server was super nice and warm without being too “on” or “off”. Just the right amount of friendliness and attention. And the rest of the staff that we encountered were the same. The atmosphere is perhaps a bit informal in comparison to the food and prices. It felt slightly cafeteria-ish. The kids thought it was cool. So nothing came even close to keeping us from going again, and we will, and soon! We had a very good dinner and time.

Booked for myself and my daughter early on New Year’s Eve. Service was good and friendly. Food was freshly prepared, and very tasty. My daughter did say that the tomato base on the pizza was a bit rich for her, but that’s not necessarily a criticism! The bill was reasonable too

日本からの旅行で利用しました。すぐそばのホテルに泊まっていたので立地は抜群でしたが内容はあまり期待していなかったんですが、めっちゃ良かったです。チーズの盛り合わせとタコが絶品でした!こちらがあまり英語が上手くないことを知ると、ゆっくり丁寧に料理について教えてくださり、とてもありがたかったです。次回訪米時も必ず伺います!

We went there for dinner and interior was lovely, service was pretty good. The only thing is that pasta dish was too salty- my friend had the one with cured fish roe and mine was with ragu- neither of us were able to finish the dish.

The lunch portion was very small. I had ravioli's and there were three with two cut in half. They were very good, but I was hungry when I left the restaurant. Our server was not very attentive or friendly. I am used to better service. The food was very good and the restaurant ambiance was nice.

We had a late lunch on Xmas day. Fabulous and authentic Italian cuisine. LOts of specials. It was crowded, but predictably so because of the holiday. I'll go back, next trip to NYC.

This was a great restaurant with excellent food! Our waiter was very patient with us since we were not ready to order right away. We met our daughter's fiancé's parents for the first time so there was a lot of talking and our waiter was very nice about it!

One of us has actually been to Sardinia. He told us the their pasta with botarga was exactly like the one he had in Sardinia. Very simple dishes executed to perfection. If you are looking for an authentic Sardinian food (feel nostalgic or curious) you will be satisfied. Also, they have good wine selection and very nice atmosphere. Honestly, this was my fifth visit (third for dinner) and this place doesn’t disappoint. Good service too, but you’re here for food!

Called for last minute reservations on a cold snowy night. It was a warm cozy atmosphere and the pastas were very good as was the wine. Prices were very reasonable for Manhattan. The only complaint was a lack of attention from the wait staff, although they did have a large party they were serving as well. The manager did step in and help out which made things much smoother. We would definitely go back again.

We had a pretty poor experience with service, I'm hoping this was just a fluke. Our server seemingly did not want to provide very simple clarifying questions about the menu, i.e. what is sea urchin like, or is the fried octopus similar to fried calamari? She was completely missing for the entirety of our meal and at the time of paying our bill so another server brought it to us when asked. When we were leaving the building, we pass her running in from outside - so she LITERALLY left our table. I honestly wish I had elevated my concerns more than we did because it was pretty off putting. I appreciated the homemade noodles, but there was little flavor to my linguine dish. Even bites of the roasted garlic slices on their own barely had any flavor. Good wine and ambiance. I'd try one more time if the opportunity presented itself.

The food is pretty yummy here, but as they get busy during the dinner rush service can get slow. Reasonable value for meal and portions. Very tasty food.

This restaurant was a tremendous disappointment considering the excellent alternatives in this restaurant packed area. Our table wasn’t ready at 915 and the hostess admitted this at first - then very rudely tried to blame us for a couple of stragglers in our party not being present. It was clear that even if they arrived - we didn’t have a place to sit. The food was simple in a boring way. And sadly, my pasta tasted like chef boyardee. I forgot the leftovers but am fine with that. After seating us about 45 minutes after our reservation, the staff rushed us out. Won’t be coming back!
