Great quality food, we had spaghetti and meatballs and chicken parmiggiano and they were both really yummy. Chocolate mousse cake for dessert was also very tasty. I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in the area and looking for an understated, relaxing meal. Service was also excellent

My husband and I went for an early dinner and had the Pasta Puttanesca and the Shrimp Pasta fra Diavolo with the house red wine, which was very good. The black olive bread was delicious and the food tasted as good as in Italy (or better). I've had my fair share of Pasta Puttanescas and this was one of the... More

A friend in the neighborhood took us to this restaurant on 107th & Amsterdam. The food and service were excellent and the music lovely. I had a shrimp dish that was cooked to perfection. The restaurant is so tiny its like eating in someone's living room. I look forward to going back.

This restaurant is small and cosy, you are made to feel welcomed immediately, and the food and service is lovely. We had garlic bread for the appetiser, which we found tasty, unlike someone else who reviewed. Yes, it was not full of garlic but the bread was lovely and crunchy, I could easily taste oregano and rosemary and garlic and... More

I enjoyed my dining experience at this restaurant. I ordered piccata chicken and it was delicious. The NY cheesecake was wonderful. The garlic bread was meh (I like mine with A LOT of garlic and this was a mild version of it, but decent). The wait staff were terrific! Everyone at our table enjoyed their meals (pasta, eggplant). You must... More

Small, cozy, romantic, really good food. We just stumbled across this place and went in. The food was great and the service was excellent. They serve small dishes to share and three out of the four we ordered were excellent. One (mushroom lasagna) was just okay, a little mushy and only room temperature, but the taste was good. They also... More
