Good food, overprized water and beer.

We came for lunch, I ate the penne arrabiata witch was good, my husband had the salame sandwitch. Also good. Be aware however that while the food is priced ok, the beer is almost the same as an entre, and so is the water. When we asked for the bill they had added a 20% tip onto the handwritten... read more

A friend who lives in the Village highly recommended this place, so a group of us went. They only take reservations early, so we changed our reservation to accommodate their rules. The place is packed -- good for them. The serve was mediocre, the food was mediocre, annd after an hour and a half they asked us to leave. What... More

If you are looking for true Italian food then look no more. This place has the best food. The wait time was not bad, around 15 minutes for a table but it was so worth the wait. The staff was super friendly and explained the menu very well. The price was very reasonable for lunch around 20 dollars. This will... More

We came here after so many times we passed by any saw that the place is always busy so we wanted to see what's the buzz is all about. The food was below average, service on the edge of rude and the prices... Oy vey... The feel was of a complete rip off. There are so many better Italian places... More

Excellent, authentic Italian food! We had the Burratta, Shrimps in Tomato Sauce, Tagliatelle Bolognese (a must) and another red sauce pasta with artichokes (I can't remember it's name). Service was not so good. That's why it's not a 5/5 review. The place is small, warm, loud and full of Italians.

This very casual, cash only restaurant is not a place for a leisurely dinner. It is small and crowded, especially in winter when there is no outside seating. That said, the food is very good and the service is brusque but efficient. Waiters have a hard time juggling the plates between tables and waiting customers, They do not accept reservations.

If this review was for the buratta... It would be a five star review. This was the highlight of the meal by far, but the rest of the meal left a lot to be desired. The waiter seem disinterested and didnt explain any of the meals on the blackboard until we asked (despite offering full explainations to the table of... More

Definitely the food is not bad, but could be better. Bad service. Great location, to drink something and chat with friends is good enough.

Here for a girls weekend. Looking for a nice, leisurely dinner. We picked the wrong place!!! The food was good, but over-priced considering the rude staff!!!!! They made it very obvious once you ate you need to leave - even taking 1/2 filled wine glass. Due to this rude behavior from all staff would not recommend this restaurant ever!!!

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
