After a day of shopping and sightseeing I was ready to eat anything. Stumbled upon this place. They made room for our large party (13) and served us up the best food I have eaten in NYC. Service was excellant, they knew we were under a time crunch to catch our train and did there best to expidite our orders. All this in the cozy setting. I will remeber this expierence for a long time.

Visited here on a Tuesday night. Busy, but not too crowded. Food was above average for this price range. Wine prices were a little steep. $10 for a glass of chianti. Overall it was a pleasant experience.

Far enough from the main drag to make it a good spot before or after a show. The place is small, but wasn't crowded when I went there. Nice decor, and a tiny full bar in the back (a bit too close to the restrooms, but what the heck). Worth a try.

After presenting at, Green Buildings NY, myself and a colleague wandered up 9st looking for a place to relax , have a beverage and a bite to eat. Mario's had a table on the street (me the true people watcher) it was calling my name. We had a seat, ordered a pair of "cold" beers, strolled through the menu, well it turns out Mario's serves a kick ass Veal Marsalis, but the best part of this "Jewel" is there seems to be an apartment building near by that is full of Models, the view was" Spectacular" The perfect end? Right across the street "MoaCigars" we had a nice hand rolled Torpedo smoke right there in the shop, it was as if we walked right into Havana...

This is a cute little spot in a strange strip of mostly boarded up storefronts, and given how that seems from the outside, it's pretty cozy inside. Nice music, lots of sunshine pouring in big front windows, friendly staff. But if I pay $13 for lunch portion of pasta, I do not expect cheap canned black olives in a puttanesca. The portion was pretty small, and didn't come with a salad or anything, either. At lunch time, when there are only two other tables with people in the whole place, I shouldn't have to wonder when the waitresses will take my waiting credit card This place really has potential. There aren't many good sit down lunch spots around Penn Station, and the menu is pretty appealing. Maybe they're trying to figure out if they are going to stay in business or go the way of the rest of the boarded up neighbors?

I've been here twice - both the pizza, and the pasta are delicious. I ordered the cheese ravioli - had I been hungrier, I would have eaten the entire dish in one sitting! The prices are very reasonable - I believe with tax and tip included, I paid about $15 (we did not order wine). It is cozy enough for a date spot, though both times I went it was with friends.

Very friendly, comfortable, and relaxing atmosphere. Service was fantastic, food arrived quickly and was quite enjoyable and all for a very reasonable price! Will definitely come back!
