The food was no less than amazing. Every bite was distinct and had a flavour of it's own. Food was prepared so that you can taste the basic essences of each ingredient while complimenting the dish as a whole. It makes me sad to know that I won't be able to eat there until my next visit to Brooklyn, USA.

Dont understand the hype. Seriously. The building? Falling apart. Looked and smelled dirty (and I'm pretty forgiving)... service? meh, I dont care about the service as long as I get what I want, so I guess it was okay. The prices are alright, me and my husband eat for 5 ppl and the bill was no more than $300... ahhh and the food. The ONLY really important thing in a restaurant..... well, the one thing I LOVED LOVED LOVED was the bread. The rest? we ordered 4 apps, 3 pastas and 3 main courses, and EVERYTHING tasted like rosemary. and I LOVE rosemary. but every bite tasted like I was taking a nibble at a rosemary bush. point is, I'm not going back, and unless u like to eat shrubbery, yea. you get my point.

Most of the dishes we tried were on the salty side, this included the tripe, duck (evening special) and monk fish. wasn't too impressed given all the raves.

The pasta is first rate, but different. The gnocci made of riccota is simply great & the ravioli stuffed with beets & ricotta are mouthwatering & unique. The hanger steak with arugala is tender & rates with the best in the city. The sangiovese reserve by the glass was on the nose. The pear - chocolate dessert w/thick real whipped cream sublime. Oh, the duck confit special with rosemary roasted potatoes & grilled red grapes (yes, grilled) was terrific. The duck fat enriched the potatoes to a delicious richness. Go early & often.

Went there at around 6:30PM on a Thurs w/ a group of 6. Place was half full, but quickly filled up after that and glad we went in when we did because otherwise we would've a few more hours for that much space to open up again. The food was fantastic. Everything was sublime. I had the tripe, and the tagliatelle w/ meat ragu. They make it with beef, veal, and pork and it was supremely flavorful. The casunzei was terrific. The side of swiss chard was perfect - great roasted flavor and seasoned just right. And best of all......really affordable!!! Service was very attentive and low pressure as well. Never had to worry about an empty water glass. When the waiter accidentally poured a 2nd different wine into my existing glass, they instantly apologized and offered me a full glass of my original on the house. Only complaint is that the space gets quite loud. Other than that, a great place. Would make the trek out to Brooklyn again.

I've never had a bad moment here, except for the cramped quarters. Food, fantastic. And good lighting! I'd spend my hard earned cash here anytime. I dream of this place.
