The food is always fantastic! I chose this spot specifically for my birthday and all of my friends loved it! The only downside is the “cash only” rule.

This is one of my FAVORITE spots for authentic Italian food. I absolutely love this place. Sadly, the service last night was a little slow. Maybe my table just didn't communicate properly, however, the waitress only took an order for 1 of our appetizers (we had to ask to her 3 times to come over and take the rest) and we had to ask for bread 4 times. Of course, if it was busy I wouldn't be bothered by it, but there was only my table and a couple other people in the restaurant. Overall I still loooove this place and will always come back. Grazie!!

Great Italian food, the antipasti, pasta and risotto were delicious. Service minded and friendly staff helped us with good recommendations both for food and wine. Small and genuine with great atmosphere.

Great find! Had no idea we were going into the Lazio “headquarters” and what a pleasant surprise as long as you’re in for the regulars chanting and singing while a game is on. They told us before we sat so we knew and it made our experience much better. Food was incredible (awesome flavor) and the prices are very reasonable. Kids thought it was great and we had a blast. We’ll be making the trek into the city just to go back.

Large gathering of friends, both adults and children. We were seated immediately, our waiter was lovely, helpful and patient! Great food, excellent service, not too expensive; warm and cozy spot on a freezing cold evening - and ww were finished in plenty of time to get to our show afterwards. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Crowded, noisy, fun and AWESOME, authentic Italian food at very reasonable prices. Myself, wife and daughter Had the gnocchi, eggplant parm and spaghetti alla matriana. Good portion sizes, great sauce, "every bite made me feel good" said my 18 year old Fordham freshman. We were in visiting from Detroit and expect to make this spot a regular every time we come back! Reservations available on Open Table make it easy.

I have been here numerous times and this is the first time eating downstairs - Always great food here and a great energy, friendly servers and a fun bar. Upstairs is always on the louder side if you want to get into serious conversations but downstairs was same great food and service and we could have a nice discussion with the meal and catch up!! Totally recommend

Amazing food, you can tell how fresh and high quality the ingredients are. The place is slightly small but has a great authentic ambience. The tiramisu is unreal, feels like you are eating an old school recipe from Veneto region. Highly recommended. Remember to bring cash as this is a cash only restaurant.
