Sweet place and the specials are very fresh and delicious. I have had an exquisite Bronzini and a seafood combo dish. This is the best Italian I have had so far on the UES. That said, there are some caveats: they volunteer how their chef might make the menu items but do not tell you those options cost about $4-5 over the menu price just for a common type of sauce that was not specified on the menu, the delivery of the salad was very skimpy and poor value and the red snapper delivery was not fresh and overseasoned. Therefore, I think the restaurant is most worthy for dine in but I will avoid it for deliveries.

Stale bread. Cheapest wine is $33. Beware of specials. Salad special was $13.95 when quoted $12.

Food was amazing. I thought I was back in Florence. Great wine list -- sassacia, ornellia, solia!! Real italian egg plant. Saltimboca to die for... But the seevice & atmoshpere was as good as the food. Ok for families or couples. Edgar our waiter gave us a grapa on the house to cap the evening. Perfect.

Came here for a great dinner tonight after reading good things on Menupages and what a great meal I was treated to. It sounds cliche but this place actually feels authenticcally Italian - the food is straightforward and unpretentious, just like the atmosphere. Rich, simple, ingredient based dishes at their best - definitely my new pick for great Italian in NY, which is kinda surprisingly hard to find! Carpaccio appetizer is AMAZING, seriously even if you don't usually like it, try it.

Small, intimate location. They remember me and my fiance every time. The food is OUT of this WORLD! If you are looking to save money, this is not the place to go. For anything else. GO!
