Absolutely wonderful. I visit family in Italy every year so I know the difference between Italian American food and real Italian food. This restaurant makes excellent Italian food, true to the homeland. you will not find 'penne alla vodka ' or pasta's drowning in a flavorless sauce on this menu--thank god! The pizza's are made exactly like some of the restaurants that I frequent in Italy. The prices are cheap and the portions are big so you get your money's worth.

One of my 3 regular lunch spots. Value is what this place is all about. Lunch special: $8.95. For this you get salad or soup, and one of several pasta dishes. The soup changes everyday, and it ranges from spectacular to just fine. The salad, on the other hand, is not your usual cheap toss of Iceberg shreds with a bit of tomato and cucumber. It has Endive, Arugula, Tomato and Mesclun, and it's big enough to satisfy. With this you get a nice basket of peasant bread and a welcome variation on the water routine: They bring a jar of water to each table, rather than having to keep refilling the glasses, which on a busy day can mean the difference between good and bad service. I've had all the pasta dishes on the special and I found them all to be very tasty, with my two favorites being the Tortellini Parmigiano and the Taglierini Pesaro. They are large enough portions to fill anyone. They have good deals on wine bottles, and a decent house wine by the glass. The decor of the place, which is mostly brick finished, is charming and cozy. The large windows are also a pleasant sight on a nice day, and the service is good. Lots of people from my job go to this place regularly, sometimes in fairly large groups, we always leave full and happy.

I live nearby and must order from here at least once a week - i've raved about this place to my friends and now they're fans..great combination of ingredients within each dish and very affordable. I've also discoved that the bread, while a bit chewy and tough to eat on its own, is perfect for dipping into pasta dishes and soaks up the sauce amazingly well!

i just went here 4 days ago and i already cannot wait to go back. despite the bread being a bit cold and tough, the entrees more than made up for it. nothing beats incredibly delicious homemade pasta at an unbelievably affordable price in a fantastic location. such an amazing variety of choices...my friends and i have vowed to try everything on the menu!

From someone who dislikes pasta, it is HUGE for me to say that I like an Italian restaurant. Il Corallo Trattoria blows me away with its huge list of pasta with greatly affordable prices. Even more importantly, each pasta I have tried is wholly original with homecooked tastes that would make any culture say, "mhhm". Furthermore, 6$ house wine and friendly staff add to the wonderful combination of making this restaurant a premier stop for my visitors!

Love this place. It's one of the few affordable, albeit cheap restaurants in Soho. Not only is the food great, but the choices of pasta are endless. The staff is very sweet and attentive. The space is kinda cramped, but its worth the great prices and delicious, simple italian food.
