We went on a Saturday night and the place was packed. It's a small restaurant so the six of us were fit snuggly into a table too small for us without any real clearance for the aisle. The food was good. Everyone enjoyed their meal, but the cramped quarters and the noise from all the talking around us made it difficult to enjoy the meal like we could have. But I'd go again for a table for two.

Dined here in late Sept. at recommendation of our hotel concierge - just a terrific meal for all 4 of us. Mine was the 3 pasta special and all were mouth-watering & unique. Not sure what some of these other reviewers are talking about - we'll definitely return again!

I went here because I enjoy watching the cooking show "Lidia's Italian American Table", but the food was nothing like the dishes I've seen her make - the pasta was overcooked and cold. My friend had chicken which was pretty good but nothing special. Service was good, decor was a bit boring, but tasteful. I don't plan to eat here again because there are far too many Italian restaurants in NYC that are much better and probably cost less.

Another restaurant surviving off the tourist trade and a famous chef's name on the door. The regular menu is much pricier but at least the quality is better. I had the the steak over polenta and was pleased. Although I guess we shouldn't expect that much from any place that has all you can eat pasta. There's tons of better Italian restaurants that are worth your money.

I'm sure many people love this place because the food is very decent, but I don't think you're getting value (nothing special for the price). Also, our server was very rude and snobby. When I ordered two appetizers as my meal I was told that "this is a course restaurant. You must eat one as first course and then the other." Imagine being told how to eat your dinner? I wanted to eat them together but I politely let it slide. Didn't appreciate the attitude and will not go back. Not a great experience.

service was excellent, from the waiters to busboys, everyone was very efficient. 7 of us had the pasta special and i had the veal chop and one had a seafood dish. veal chop was superb and one of the best that the carnevore ever had. same with seafood love, she thought it was fabulous. we all shared calamari appetizer and i thought calamari appetizers at portugese restaurants are often much better. all of us enjoyed caeser salad and 3 pasta choices were very filling for all of us. one salad(regular) was not good at all and they removed it from the bill. noisy atmosphere and they let you relax if wanted or get you out if on your way to the theater.

Ate here for the first time and wow - what a gastronomical adventure. Had the Prix Fixe lunch and would absolutely get it again. The mixed antipasto was incredible, such different items like ricotta with honey drizzled over it. Next was an unlimited amount of the the three pastas of the day. Each pasta dish served was better than the last. The service was great, the staff a delight. Can't wait to return.
