Delicious Pasta and a good wine list make this a great neighborhood find -- restaurant needs to work a little harder on service and the side dishes are a hit or miss ... had broccoli rape that was over-cooked and very bitter. Stick to the appetizers and appetizer-sized pastas with a few glasses of wine and you won't go wrong here.

I still cannot believe how much I love this restaurant. I know I should not even post this, because I am afraid they will raise their prices and it will be hard to get a reservation, but they have done a great job of being a moderately priced, high-quality restaurant. The wine list is extensive and many bottles under $30. All of the food that I have had has been nothing less than outstanding. The papardelle, gnocchi, mussels, specials, fondue, etc. etc. - it's all amazing. The place is really quaint and is cozy and not pretentious. Having been to almost every "name-brand" restaurant in the city, I feel confident this is by far my favorite restaurant in the city, and I'm lucky its so close to home. That being said, we are moving soon, but will make a point to come back here often. It can be romantic (we had a great Valentine's Day here) or low-key (dinner on Sunday evening before the work week). I am trying delivery tonight. Most of our dinners come out to about $85 (including wine, appetizer, two small plates, and dessert).

I love this food. It is so fresh and well-prepared. It is one of the few places where the pasta is never overcooked. Even when I order delivery, the pasta arrives al dente. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Haven't been here since they changed the name from Luca. I have to say delicious. We ate items from the grill, Portobello mushrooms, calamari and shrimp and scallops. So yummy. The place has a nice vibe to it and the staff is so friendly. I would definitely recommend it.

I was happy to see this place open since I like the Cavatppo wine bar. The food is solid. My wife and I usually end up getting several smaller plates to try a few different things. The cheese plates, pastas and pizza are all good. The veal ragu is tasty. I've been here twice since opening and was pleased both times. Definitely worth checking out.
