My wife and I have eaten dinner here at least three times. The first time was wonderful. We had the salmon pasta special, which was delicious and the server was delightful. Since then, it's been a slippery slope. None of the food we've ordered, other than the salmon, has been especially tasty. The oxtail was flavorless, the salad oily, the soup and squid ink flavorless. The service was poor the last time we went -- we were charged for food we never received and treated to a healthy dose of attitude. The poor arrangement of the communal tables, which the first time we went seemed conducive to making friends, has turned out to be a nightmare. If you are sitting at the end of the table nearest the bar, then expect the server to be bumping into you and reaching over your head. And if you are sitting closer to the window, then I hope you are not claustrophobic. The tables simply do not fit in the space. What at first seemed like a charming trattoria straight out of Rome (the waitstaff delights in informing patrons that the chef is Roman) has turned out to be a seedy little joint with subpar food perfect for the obnoxious crowd it appears to attract.

There were three of us dining before the Barbra Streisand concert at the Barclay Center. There were people waiting outside and the manager/owner? came out with a glass of prosecco for us while we waited for a table - nice! We loved this place. It's tiny and fun and the food and service are wonderful. Don't go for a long leisurely private dinner - just appreciate a seat and fantastic italian food. The prosciuto was delicious - maybe the best I've ever tried. I had a black spaghetti (squid ink) with vongole - delicious. The bread was yummy too. Very thin crisp strips of Italian bread - so good that we asked for more and it was brought right out. A great experience. I'd go back in a minute.

Va beh' had some big shoes to fill opening in Taro Sushi's old space, but I'm happy to say it's a winner. Both the dry and fresh pastas are perfectly cooked and have tasty sauces. The salads are good and the artichoke crostini was outstanding. I also recommend the tiramisu. It's better to get takeout if you have kids, though- the restaurant is quite small and feels cramped, plus there's only one high chair.
