We stopped by for a late lunch on a Saturday. The food was good but the noise made it impossible to enjoy it or hear anything my partner said. Agree with another review, won't be back.

If weather permits go to the rear and sit out side. Great service, great food, big selection on the menu to suit anyone's taste, good choice of wine. Try as an entree the pizza...it is very good, but all other selections are very good.

If you are a 20 yr old, this would be a fine choice. But if you are older, like to hear what your companions are saying without having to say "what?" on every response, like good food well priced and nice waiters who are paying attention, then this place would be OK for you. I am not going back.

two couples went out for dinner on a Friday night. We were promptly seated as per our reservations - restaurant packed with fashionable "locals", very loud noise level. Outdoor and indoor seating available. Food very good quality - excellent tomato soup, pasta dishes with light touch. Attentive and friendly service. Problem area: Portions extremely small! Size of main dishes would... More

I dined here early on Sunday evening, and it is a nice enough Italian cafe but not large. We were seated at a small table on the patio which was nice, but it was a bit crowded. The menu is nothing special, but the food was fresh and good. I enjoyed the proscuitto and melon plate which also had some... More

We went to this place with another couple - could not get the outside seating but settled for table inside. The restaurant is not very big but it is cozy and service fast and friendly. Our waiter was pleasant and efficient; knew the wine list and made suggestions. The menu is not overwhelming but good choices for anyone. I loved... More

Dined here on a couples night out. Place is not large, they have a few outdoor tables-if you like eating outside by the sidewalk with a view of the side of the building and street then go for it- Pizza is good, made in a wood burning oven. Good sized wine list, and not an over expansive menu. Food was... More

The restaurant has an outside eating area on quiet corner of classy Greenwich Avenue, and a barrel-vaulted ceiling interior with classical murals on each barrel. I had the angel hair lobster pasta in a tomatoey lobster 'broth' and it was very tasty. At $28 it did not seem too dear, given we were talking of lots of small lobster pieces.... More

My wife and I really enjoyed the outside sitting area along Greenwich Avenue, and we also appreciated the prompt and friendly service. The Parmesan Crusted Sole was outstanding. My wife's choice of the angel hair pasta and scallops dinner special was unfortunate - because it had zero flavor. At $26.00 for the pasta dish, it should have been tasty. My... More
