Good was sub par. Drinks and check ins from waiter took too long or we had to flag them down. Older man was very sweet at the door and made our experience stand out.

There was a bit of a wait but well worth it. The food was delicious, the staff apologized for the delay, and were so lovely to get us a table and make sure we were well taken care of. Will absolutely be returning! Great restaurant.

One of the worst dining experiences I’ve had in a long time. They didn’t seat us for more than 30 minutes while we waited in a crowd of people. The service was awful and our food took an hour to come out. They blasted techno making the entire experience feel like a fever dream. Will never go back.

Blendi was a great server. Mozzarella Sticks, best I've ever had, 2 Penne Vodka and Frutti Di Mare were fantastic and plentiful. A couple of Peronis and San Santo Pinot Grigios made for a wonderful evening. Thank you.

The service was on point and excellent. The food comes out quickly and is of great quality. Casual Italian place in Chelsea. There were 6 of us and we ordered about half of the starters on the menu. Beet salad was good, calamari / shrimp dish was great as was the burrata.

For the main course the grandmas lasagna was amazingly good. The spaghetti for all the dishes we had was great. It’s not all dente but also not too soft.

Wine was very reasonable price. The most expensive bottle was about $100 where similar bottles at other places charge double. And they have many nice Italians for the $45-$60 range.

Also the service was top notch, they followed covid protocols for vaccine card checks.

Smelly. Food not edible. Mozzarella sticks tasted like fish sticks, the lemonade was iced Mr Clean, and the ravioli was cold Chef Boyardee.

I arrived about 40 minutes early for my reservation but was greeted enthusiastically and graciously. Zac was terrific. We discussed my wine selection, and his suggestion suited me perfectly. Granted, it was early in the evening, and the restaurant was almost empty, but, even as more tables filled, we continued to be treated attentively by Zac and the rest of the team. The food, too, was excellent.

Food was very very good! None of the frozen drinks on the menu were available. Service was a a little unattentive considering that there were only 2 other tables both with small parties eating at the same time.

I made a reservation and paid $30 to Uber to the restaurant only to find out they’re closed. Update your times, its not that hard. Unprofessional and irresponsible.
