    Went there on a Sat night without reservations, we were squeezed into a table where the kitchen door was swinging out every minute, we called the owner over and said it was not acceptable, he took us in the back room and showed us a table right on top of another table of two. We are NY'ers so the close proximity to the other couple didn't bother us. We started with the beet salad which was delicious, the rest of the meal was a disappointment, We both had the veal marsala which was tasty enough, but the veal tasted like pressed meat, didn't seem like quality veal, it came with a few tiny roasted potatoes and nothing else. We also had drinks which were quite expensive considering it was just vodka soda. We were shocked at how high the bill was and were sorry that we didn't walk the few blocks elsewhere where we would've been treated like gold and fed like kings and still had cash left over for a gelato at one of the outdoor stands.

    Don't get the fuss!

    Went in with great expectations - left greatly disappointed. Ordered a bottle of wine - temperature was close to a boiling point, surprised how it was still drinlable. We ordered whole branzino and a leg of lamb from the specials menu, food arrived in 40 minutes, the fish was of unknown origin - a cheap substitude, definately not branzino, lamb looked and tasted more like beef, overcooked potatoes, mushy vegies. Bad food badly prepared by a bad cook. Now I know why these were on the special. This place might be good for pastas, but for everything else, especially the "specials" stay away!

    Favorite Italian place

    It's always a pick me up to have dinner here. I usually get the pastas which are consistently delicious. They have often have a wonderful black linguine special with lobster, which is a particular favorite. Service is warm and it's a great find especially in an area dominated by touristy restaurants.

    Very impressed

    I am picky when it comes to pasta. This place is one of the best Italian restaurant with the cost performance. The quality compared to the prices is really high. They can charge us more! My lobster pasta was fantastic. Their sandwiches are great too. I can enjoy each single menu.

    I order from here about two to three times a week and its excellent every time. The ingredients are fresh and delicious, the dishes the perfect size, and their weekly specials are unique (and tasty!) for a restaurant in this area. If you want great food in the Financial District then visit Barbarini Alimentari.
