    We were there early, in advance of a show at the nearby 92d Street Y. There were only 4-5 parties in the restaurant. It’s a pretty place, the menu looked good, but the food was mediocre, and so was service. Bus boys kept our bottled water glasses filled, but the waiter paid no attention to us whatsoever, beyond taking our order. He couldn’t be bothered—never asked if we liked our food, needed anything, or wanted desert or coffee. Prices are sky-high. The tuna tartare with avocado was a weird kind of mash with a few chips ($24 or $28), and the Caesar salad was a plateful of unappetizing looking pale green Romaine lettuce (hearts only) with croutons ($28) was just okay. The special pasta—pappardelle with a bit of overcooked, chewy lobster, spinach, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes($34?)—was not good. I’ll never go back.

    Would have rated higher if they had lunch menu prices. $33 for a simple mushroom pasta bowl is a lot to pay for lunch. Food was very good, portion size decent and service excellent in a lovely setting. It was surprisingly noisy given how few tables were occupied and the ceiling seemed to have noise panels.

    Pleasant dinner but not memorable. Food was tasty, but a bit pricey for pasta. The burrata appetizer was a bit watery and too small a portion to share. They ran out of veal chop before 8:00 pm, a bit disappointing. Atmosphere was pleasant, drinks were good, enjoyed the dessert.

    I liked the food and service very much.: Very good, relaxed service. Fantastic fried zucchini and pasta. We shared a nice bottle of white wine. The only problem: I think the place is a little over priced compared with other local restaurants.

    We were 4 people seated at a table barely big enough for 2. Eventually, I asked for a larger table and they did move us, but anyone paying attention to our table would have seen there was not enough room to accommodate dinner plates. The bottle of wine we wanted was out of stock, we had to make a second choice. The noise level was too high until diners started to leave. Our guest asked for butter. It was not brought over. He had to ask again. The servers did not know who had ordered what entry. The food was mediocre, and expensive. For the cost, diners should expect experienced servers, attention to diners comfort, higher quality of food and an all around elevated dining experience.

    Went there for a dinner with my boyfriend. We had the best time. We sat at a quiet corner table all the way in the back of the restaurant. Food was spectacular!!! Fusilli Vicolina and Veal Milanese were unbelievable. When it comes to the dessert they’re homemade Tiramisu just melts in the mouth-that’s how good it was. They also have beautiful Speak Easy next doors, it is a MUST to check! We had an amazing time. Definitely coming back 😊
