    The food was okay and wasn’t extraordinary. Our meals came out at different times and the overall experience was mediocre. I didn’t feel like the food was worth the price. There is better Italian in the city.

    One of my favorite places in the Village. Tucked away on Macdougal street, this little gem never disappoints. The staff is super accommodating and friendly. The service is never rushed. All of the dishes are prepared with care and everything I have ever had there is wonderful. A legend in the city.

    Even though we had a reservation, we got a table tucked away all the way in the back upstairs, just next to the toilets… Beer drinking men and kids where running in and out of the men’s room, not very nice. Actually asked to be seated somewhere else, and ended up next to a super noisy crowd whose kids where running around screaming and yelling. Service was excellent though. He did his best to keep us happy. Food was ok, not more. Left for desserts elsewhere.

    Long time traditional Italian restaurant in Greenwich Village. Delicious food! Reasonable prices and comfortable ambiance. Only criticism is that it can get a bit loud when the restaurant is full. But we love it here and highly recommend it!

    The food was overpriced and honestly, pretty bad. The pasta was overcooked, and the apps were tiny. There was also brown sediment at the bottom of my water cup :( Probably my worst dining experience in NYC to date.
