Disappointing experience in every sense! Came here for my birthday dinner after having 3 excellent experiences at the downtown location - I dont know how this is even called the same restaurant. The service -poor. The waiter literally said to me "Did you read the menu?" when I asked for a clarification. We asked for bruschetta 3 times before someone finally slapped a plate in front of us of just tomatoes - none of the bread. The food - the pasta that I remember so fondly from the village location was now tasteless, chewy, inedible. The chicken was bland and unmemorable. The experience - my husband and I were seated and out of there in less than an hour. There are so many amazing restaurants in New York - you would do better at any of them over this!

I've never written a restaurant review (let alone a bad one), but after dining at many of the cities finest restaurants, I can say that this Maitre D' almost ruined the experience. (Thank goodness for the good company I was in). After telling us he needed the table back at 8 (for a 6:30 reservation where they did not even seat us right away), he proceeded to deliver sarcasm and a horrific attitude when we asked if we had time for dessert. He was extremely disrespectful to us in a way that was unclassy, and that I have never experienced in 7 years of fine dining in NYC. Otherwise, waiters were nice (it's not their fault after all), and food was good. But, if you want good Italian and a good attitude, you aren't missing out if you go elsewhere.

Yes, it's expensive but it's amazing. The owners figured out how to replicate downtown in a sleek and modern atmosphere. Simply a must and you will certainly spot some big names dining there.

First they start you off with a few free things a little parm cheese and bread there was so much garlic in the bread that dracula in his grace was turning over theres about 5 items on the menu the rest are specials yeah there special alright ravioli for $50 for about 10 small pieces all the food is so so so bad drowned in garlic i dont know why people think its cool to go here to be drowned in garlic. It's also very overpriced. Do yourself a favour go down the block, grab a slice of pizza somewhere and be so very happy p.s there is no atmosphere at all here four bare walls
