    My Favorite Italian Restaurant in NYC

    I grew up with home cooked Italian food and this place almost beats my Grandmother's cooking. All of the ingrediants are so fresh - nothing fancy, but the food is amazing. I recommend this place to everyone.

    Just delicious

    If you know what to order here, you will not be disappointed. The bruschetta is amazing. The pear/orange and parmesan salad they offer as a special sometimes is also great, same for the fresh mozz. salad. As entrees go, they have some great homemade pastas. I never ever order pasta with a marinara sauce when I go out b/c it usually cannot compare to my mother's but this is very good. Gnocchi is homemade and wonderful and the sauces are too. If they have the mushroom ravioli as a special, get it, it is so flavorful. The fish specials are usually very good too. For dessert - do not even consider anything but the panna cotta. Trust me, you will not be disappointed, it is like a taste of heaven. The tira mi su used to be better but that is also homemade and tasty. I have been disappointed by the wines (house are not good) but everything else is just great. The atmostphere is lovely too. If you call in advance, they'll hold a table for you which i recommend as weekends and the summer season tend to be busier.

    Mini-trip to Italy

    I lived by this restaurant for a while and finally decided to try it out. The space is pretty small and when there are a lot of people there, it may require a bit of maneuvering to get to your seat. It is suggested that a reservation be made because this place is always crowded. They serve you bread which is still warm because they literally just baked it. The olive oil is nice and grassy and is one of the highlights of the restaurant. On the menu itself, there are not so many choices, as it usually is with a good restaurant, because they change so often. If you've ever been to Italy (specificaly the Florence area) you can essentially expect the same quality of food. The downside is that they only accept cash. Luckily, there's an ATM right next door.
