    Warm Italian Restaurant, could be better

    This Italian place received great reviews and we wanted to go someplace special. The restaurant is surprisingly well lit although we were seated close to the door and it got a little chilly. The server who i also presume was the owner was very cordial and knowledgable about wines as well as the dinner menu. our appetizer with eggplant was delicious . they also served us complimentary Bruschetta. The entree was this delicious Ravioli with sage butter sauce. also the dessert was pretty good- Chocolate Souffle. Overall , i was pleased with the restaurant , although it wasnt very romantic.

    Festive and Delicious

    Two of us ordered one appetizer, one salad, one pasta, and one meat entree and shared everything. It was all culinary ecstasy. we ordered a crab cake appetizer which was at least as good as any I've had in Baltimore, home of the Crab. Baby artichokes salad - texture - excellent. We ordered the traditional napolitan pasta/egg plant - pasta was all semolina and homemade (didn't taste like ronzoni). the pan roasted chicken with fontina cheese was a little salty but i wouldn't let them keep me from going back. great, deferential, accommodating and friendly service. Not overpriced either. Enjoy! Oh - We topped it off with "dolce speciale?" for dessert. also delicious and gorgeous too.

    This is a great place!

    This is simply a great restaurant: friendly service, lovely decour, a central location, and, of course, really really good food. I recommend the spaghetti with lamb ragu. In fact, I think I might go get some more of that tonight...

    Good food, but...

    The food here was every bit as good as the other reviewers have said. However, I made a leap of faith and came here for the first time with two guests, which I normally would not do. The table we were seated at was incredibly small for three, and it was not at all well located. We were in what felt like the middle of the traffic flow to the door. It was not the experience I wanted my guests to have, especially since they were both from other countries and I wanted to treat them to a really good New York experience. I think I will return to my prior policy of never visiting a restaurant with guests unless I have been there before myself and been pleased with everything.

    Amazing Meal

    This restaurant is one of the best meals I've eaten in NYC. The food was delicious and the service was teriffic. A wonderful place for a date or to grab a bite to eat before a show.

    great

    I've been in NYC for 4 months now, and have been sampling the cuisine at every opportunity. This restaurant was by far my favorite perhaps ever. Almost immediately upon being seated we were presented with a complementary bruchetta amuse-bouche, which was indicative of what was to come the complementary items came between each course. The steak special was cooked to absolute perfection, the wine selection was carefully articulated by our most personable server, the creme brulee was fantastic, and I'm running out of hyperboles. As previously stated by other reviewers, I hesistate to recommend it this highly I would pay twice what I did.
