    Great Food, Great Atmosphere

    I always mull over the specials here because I've never been disappointed. The crab and pea linguine special still lingers in my memory and the spaghetti and meatballs (can make the noodles whole wheat!) are to die for. Great date spot and feed-the-parents-in-town spot. The staff are always lovely, which helps. Those of you who've rated on the lower scale make me smile and think, "Good...more for me!"

    Good food, great service, cozy atmosphere.

    I had a great meal here while in NYC 2 weeks ago. The Manager/Owner was very attentive without hovering. He made great suggestions on meal , wine and desserts. In addition, he was very kind, humble, and personable. I felt as though I was in Italy! I ordered a special of pasta with fresh crab and spinache and peas. Tremendous! I also had two glassess of a Sicilian Rose' which was exquisite. For dessert I had a wonderful cheesecake and a cup of coffee. The cost was around $60, but I felt it was reasonable. I tipped very generously and left with a smile on my face. You must try this restaurant.

    Abysmal Italiano

    Abysmal food at sky high prices. Can not judge the decor, service etc since we ordered take out. Pleasant girl on the phone and delivery came pretty rapidly. Things got bad once the food arrived. First, stale day old bread. Next, manicotti, a single piece for 19 bucks! For some odd reason, someone decided it would be appetizing to throw a side of wet, tasteless steamed broccoli inside the tin container which made the cheese mush polluted with broccoli water. Next, chicken scarpariello, a dish any New Yorker would love but not from this place. A few wet pieces of bland chicken swimming in sour vinegar with a few bites of dry sausage for 22 bucks. Can't judge the soup, tortellini en brodo which rendered inedible by its salt content only received a tasting of 2.5 spoonsful. We could have done better at half the price ordering from a crummy pizzeria.

    Excellent choice for Saturday night take-out

    I didn't stay long so I can't really judge the atmosphere but I had a great meal. I would definitely go in with family and friends.

    Mediocre

    Home style type cooking that you can get at home. The food seems to have deteriorated since I was there last. The eggplant parmigan was lukewarm, too much mozzarella cheese and sauce and not enough eggplant which was oily, and seemed like it was warmed up in the micro-wave.

    Great date place!

    I've been here a few times on dates as well as once on my birthday. The food is amazing, almost as if you are in Italy. The service is incredible, the manager always comes up to you, took my coat in the winter. Small place, but romantic inside. Highly recommend!!
