Anonymous is generally another word for coward, but in this case it is synonymous for ignorance and meaness. I spend half of my time in Europe, especially in Italie and I can tell you that this restaurant is fabulous.

Staff has a lousy attitude. Won't last in NYC like this. Hopefully they'll change. Food is ok ... but "ok" is pretty easy to come by in the city.

Delicious traditional Italian Food. Try it! It's worth it !! Ignore the other negative reviews....You get quality food at this homey, cozy joint. So what are you waiting for?

Went to eat here the other night as we live around the corner. Host was rude. In his defense they were full and we did NOT have reservations but with so many other UES italian choices we will not dine here again as the food was just on par with everywhere else

Ate here once and was disappointed. The food (with the exception of the outstanding bread) is average, over-priced and the ambience can best be described as claustrophobic. My advice to a party of four making a reservation here is to request the table for four as there is only one! If not, you will be shown to a very long table which seats 2 couples at one end and two at the other.

The waiter was very pleasant and even offered a 1/2 order of the cookies--which were ok but the chocolate with the soft center was deliciously moist without being overly sweet. The broccoli salad was excellent but skimpy and the squash with olives was very good but a bit too much olive sauce. The chicken portion was very large and moist and tender but did not come with anything--no veggies or sides. I think it should have for $18 at lunch. The free olives were a nice touch. The bread is the best! The eggplant with polenta chips was nothing special. The pasta was good, but a small portion. The cappucino was terrific--I hope it was really decaf. Since they do not have a liquor license yet, the bring your own bottle was great, but they charged $8 for a corkage fee and I think they should have said that on the phone. I really think they should not have charged until they get a license. It was not like you had a choice. If you live in the neighborhood (upper Eastside) you must go at least once. Is it worth a cab ride--probably not.

The food was good, especially the dessert of the day which was great. However, the host was a bit offputting.
