We have been coming here for over a decade, then it was discovered and no wonder. To start, the food compares to the best Italian anywhere, including Italy. From the moment you step inside, you feel like the staff are glad to see you. Pastas are great, but the off the menu specials are what it is all about. Can't... More

My wife and I have dined here a number of times over the years including our son's baptism reception, and this place never disappoints. You cannot beat the service and it never comes across as too stuffy. People are here to eat well and have a nice time.

Pure Ambrosia( food of the Gods). Great food,great service from start to finish. Great atmosphere and we didn't have to ask for anything the waiters were attentive of our table and the maitre d stopped by numerous times to thank us for coming and for asking if everything was ok. Osso Bucco was excellent.

This is a family favorite. I think the food is better than most NYC restaurants. The staff is friendly and helpful and the food is incredible. Go with the specials as they tend to be memorable. Great wine list too!

I have gone a couple of times. The wait staff is super attentive and the food melts in your mouth. They have never had any trouble seating me but I do always go with a reservation. The prices are fair for the quality. It is super high quality so the prices are a little steep. Always a great outing/meal.
