It's strange this place gets such great reviews. Certain dishes are excellent, and the ambience is okay. I had a great salad with beets, but the mushroom pasta dish was truly mediocre. Did they use canned mushrooms? It was bland. The staff is nice but maybe I did something uncouth because it seemed like an act at one point, like huh? I dunno. It's ok - just ok.

I dined here for the first time yesterday evening for dinner with a friend. I was instantly taken with the ambiance of this cozy little restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious, I orded the grilled octopus and a side of the broccoli rabe, the portion was a perfect entree! The wait staff were attentive and friendly. I will definitely return to try the desserts and cocktails!

Amazing food at the new Aita. Every bite of every dish that everyone in our party ordered was delectable. They did a great job transforming the space from Speakeasy, which seemed a little dark and cavernous. They somehow made a small space feel light and airy. The space is so small that I imagine its going to become very hard to get a table once word gets out, so rush there now while you can. Service was great too - friendly and attentive with no attitude. Will definitely return.

Food is both daring and comforting! If you want to take a culinary adventure and take your tike with you for some plain pasta--this is the place!

I've watched this space change and grow over the years (used to be "Speakeasy"). The food is wonderful -- I sat at the bar. Escarole salad to start (delicious!) Followed by the braised beef cheek (Yum! Could be served as an entree. Only criticism was that the cut was a bit fatty)... Oxtail ravioli (could have been an appetizer, but wow - beautiful balance of flavors. Truly lovely!). So glad to have this place in the neighborhood. Hope it thrives!

We are so glad to have such a phenomenal, reasonably priced restaurant in our neighborhood. My husband and I both loved our meals (oxtail ravioli and cavatelli w. kale & sausage). Beer/cocktails were really great. Also loved how beautifully the restaurant has been redecorated - even the bathroom is gorgeous. Our only concern is the size - it's fairly small - we would like to be able to bring our soon to be born daughter for dinner every now and then in the future but I'm not sure this is the spot for that...we shall see... I'm impressed and will likely be making a return visit today!
