Excellent little Italian eatery! Each of the dishes that I've tried at this casual Italian find have each been better than the last- pizza traditional thin crust with perfect crunch, pasta seasoned as a mamma mia would, pollo and veal with taste similar to dishes on the Italian Riviera. They cater to your requests and welcome you with Italian hospitality. Very limited outside dining, but when the doors and windows are open all patrons get an al fresco breeze and a view of the open oven fire. Priced on par with their offerings.

We LOVE this place. The service is great, the people that work there are so friendly and accomodating. I have been there many times, and I've gotten delivery even more times. Definitely ask for the carpaccio with hearts of palm and avocado (even if its not on the menu) because it will just melt in your mouth with satisfaction. My favorite pizza is the 4 stagioni, really nice and light but also fulfilling. My favorite pasta is the Spaghetti a la Medici. Such a perfect combination of sauce and meat and veggies. The other pastas (that I've tried) are delicious as well.

Came here on Valentine's Day. Oddly, it was crowded with little kids. (probably because pizza & pasta appeals to anyone-young or old) ) We had seafood risottogood, but skimpy on shrimp & didn't even see any clams, altho lots of calamari and a few mussels, fairly large portion ($18.00) homemade pasta w chicken and brocccoli-good, average sized portion ($14.00) macaroni w eggplant & ricotta-good, average sized portion ($14.50). Service was topswater never unfilled, bread, ordering, followup, check all done promptly & unobtrusively. The tables were a tad tight, but that's Manhattan. Decent meal, OK prices, nice atmosphere, excellent servicewill go back to try thin crust pizza.

While the service was less than impressive (the waiter came to the table with a pad and pen and stared at us - never said anything!) the food was absolutely delicious. The pizza was really authentic Italian, the entrees were full of flavor and the ingredients seemed very fresh. Great spot to sit outside on a nice evening when you want something casual in a slightly nicer atmosphere.

This is the place to get a quick and tasty Italian. The portions and taste are satisfying BUT the service is not good. We see the same people waiting on tables there over the years and it seems as if there is no progress or anything learned. The waiters command of the English language is poor and they are abrupt and somewhat abrasive.

I had dinner here this past Saturday night with a group of friends. We arrived at 7:30 without a reservation, and even though the place was packed, they were accomodating and seated us quickly. The ambiance was nice, as was our server, who did an excellent job given the fact that the place was full. The one criticism I have is that the pasta portions were a bit small given the prices, though what they lacked in size they made up for in taste. The pizza, on the other hand, offered better value, and they actually serve you a nice selection of bread before the meal. Overall, I'd recommend this place if you're looking for good food and wine on the Upper East Side.
