    Manhattan Needs More

    Good Food, Good Prices, Cozy and highly unpretentious, accomodating and courteous staff and BYO too. So what more do you want in small Italian restaurant?

    Superb food at a very reasonable price

    Some of the very best Italian food I've eaten anywhere in the NYC. And a superb value, too: prices are very reasonable. Excellent and personalized service. The ambiance is quaint and cozy. A true bargin.

    Always good!

    The Ultimate Pasta is a small, Mom and Pop type operation on the second floor of an old brownstone. The food is always excellent. (Their Chicken Scaparella is fantastic. Try it with sausage added and know gastronomical greatness! The wait staff is friendly and helpful. No matter how crowded the place gets they never get rattled or lose their friendly demeanor. Only problem, and it's a small one, is that the place IS small and can get crowded between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. That is a minor price to pay for eating at this excellent bistro. Heartily recommended. (P.S. Just downstairs the restaurant runs The Ultimate Pizza, a mostly take out place that reminds you why you liked pizza in the first place!)

    Tasty and reliable

    The food is hearty, tasty and satisfying. The service is attentive. The atmosphere is charming. My favorites are the ceasar salad, chicken parm, and all of the pastas. I love that it's a BYO - it definitely helps to keep things recession friendly.

    Have been here a few times recently and am almost afraid to let the secret out! The food really is quite good, the portions enought for two, the meat sauce and the marinara sauce are both rich and flavorful! The warm fresh bread is a nice touch. Service is friendly and attentive. BYOB tops off this little spot's charm. Oh well...now the secret is out!

    What price parmigiana?

    According to the menu on this MenuPages site, veal parmigiana and spaghetti is $12.95. I just got back from the place and I ordered that dish and it was $16.75. As I left, I looked at the menu posted in the glass case outside the restaurant and the dish was $18.95. I need not comment further.

    Use to be that this place had very tasty food. If you know, an italian restaurant must have a gerat tomato sauce to be good. Well they have changed the sauce from a rich, tangy base to a rather bland sauce. I can no longer urge you to enjoy something special here.
