    Good value

    Nice little place for dinner. The girlfriend and I came here based on menupages reviews, and I was not disappointed. The Gnocco Fritto was very tasty - we both enjoyed it quite a bit. I got the spinach salad, the g/f got the mesclun salad. I was pretty happy with mine, the g/f felt hers was too bitter (I tried it and disagreed). For the entree, I got the ravaoli with butter and sage, and was very pleased. The g/f got the lasagne, and this was also very tasty. The dessert was an 'interpretation' of tiramisu, which was okay, but NOT actually tiramisu. I feel like there should have been more coffee flavor. The plating of the food was excellent and appetizing. The service was absolutely stellar - our waitress was very attentive without being overbearing. One quibble is that the tables are too close together, making me feel a tad claustrophobic, with the waiters leaning over me to attend to other diners and having almost no elbow room. Overall, I felt like this was a terrific value, with fantastic service and a good atmosphere, though I wish there was more space. I would return.

    Best low budget in the entire area

    Very little to write, besides: outstanding value, great food, fantastic atmosphere (but a bit busy) and nice service. Thanks George for being one of the first in this cool neighborhood and sticking to it.

    This is the stuff dreams are made of

    We have been going here for years. It is absolutely our favorite restaurant in the city. The food is amazing and reasonably priced, the staff is sweet and attentive, the restaurant is cozy and feels like home. Puff pastries to start, Lasanga, and Flan - best meal ever! You almost don't want it to end. One meal and you will be hooked. This is truely the stuff dreams are made of.

    Sodium Overdose

    Everything was way over-salted. Obviously they do not use fresh ingredients because everything tasted like it came out of a can (high sodium content for preservation). Might as well just stay at home and stick a salt water IV up my arm. Service was fantastic, but being comatose after the sodium overload isn't worth a revisit.

    Decent food, nice service, really nice atmosphere.

    You get what you pay for in terms of food. While it is good, it doesn't exceed what I've come to consider an Italian food standard for these types of places. The service, however, was very nice, and the atmosphere was great. The place is dark and romantic, warm with candles and a nice, quiet haven to retreat to after a long day at the office with someone you are fond of. Definitely a good after work dinner spot if you are looking to be a little romantic.

    not that great, really.

    Yes, I guess it is a good deal, price-wise, but the food was all very salty and my pasta was over cooked.
