Food was OK and restaurant is cute looking but too noisy. We were 2 people sitting across from each other and could hardly hear one another. The restaurant was full and the dinner din was deafening.It gave me a headache. High cathedral ceilings with no sound insulation looks great but this place is an environmental noise hazard.

I ate here the other night at the bar with a friend who ordered linguine and clams. When the dish arrived, the clam shells were empty and he didn't see any clams in the pasta. We mentioned this to the General Manager who got very huffy saying that the clams sometimes fall out of the shell during the cooking process and there was nothing that could be done about it. He then proceeded in front of us to pick through the dish with his hands and place the empty shells on one plate and the shells w meat (or bits he found inthe pasta) on the other plate. He then announced that there were 17 empty clams but 10 full clams which should be satisfactory. We told him that we were not going to eat the dish that he had picked through with his hands and he stormed off without even asking if we would like to order something else. The bartender who witnessed the incident tried to make up for it by keeping our wine glasses full . I have eaten here before and had nice meals, but won't ever go back. Far too many restaurants in NYC to tolerate this sort of behavior

Great ambiance and really good food. It has a grotto like feeling and is illuminated by soft lighting and candle light. Wine selection is superb and the food is extremely good. The only negative that I see with this place is the service. They can be unfriendly and unprofessional.

My new favorite, this little gem has a great wine list, solid food and run by real Italians. Makes u feel like ur in a small trattoria somewhere in a Tuscan roadside. Bravi

Really fantastic gnocchi and squid ink pasta. Really interesting wines btg but a falanghina tasted old and oxidized instead of floral and fresh and werent given opportunity to taste or refuse glasses Vermentino was good negroamaro rose was great. Felt a little bit ignored arriving 930 after a show but what a charming place. Would certainly recommend.

Late on a Tuesday night, no less. Good wine selection, although nearly all Italian. (Not a big surprise.) The food is ambitious, even if it's not quite there. The chef's selection cheese plate was nice, although it could use some crackers (used up my complimentary bread basket with it), and the "truffled honey" is more like "honeyed truffles". Want to probably use a better grade of honey in the future. The tortellini in cream with mushrooms and peas? Two things. A) When using a dried mushroom, make sure it's reconstituted all the way, or chop it really small. B) It's too easy to get fresh shiitakes to use dried ones. Porcinis or morels I could understand, but you can buy shiitakes at the supermarket. Super tight quarters, funky clientele. Service tries hard, but is hit or miss - made my exit exciting, giving me 15 minutes to get to my bus by holding up both dessert service and the check. But the value is damn good, and there's just something about the ambiance. Would go again, if I found myself in the neighborhood, with time on my hands. Another plus - kitchen's open late.
