We stumbled across this place by a lucky accident. This place has a great feel to it, herbs outside the outdoor tables, funky and characterful decor, pleasant friendly wait staff and really nice flavourful food. My friend and I had pasta dishes which were very nice and my partner had a lamb chop that he said was the best he... More

On one part a restaurant (Vineria), on the other part a gourmet food pantry (Alimentari). Possibly one of the best diners this year in Manhatan and elsewhere as a matter of fact! We had divine lamb ribs, salt-baked seabass and the best botarga pasta ever! The selection of cheese makes it hard to choose from and for desert, I recommend... More

I was very impressed with the food here. We were a table of four sharing 3 appetizers (Salted Cod Croquette, Braised short rib, and Polpo) and each with their own main (2 pastas, a rissoto, and the fish). The portioning was perfect for each course and we all left feeling very satisfied. While I found the cod croquette a little... More

This place is just wonderful. The decor is outstanding. The food rocks. Grilled octopus, snapper raw and lamb tar tar were wonderful apps. Flank steak was awesome. Dessert was over the top great. Must dine place in the city. Great wine selection

House made salumi, excellent olive oils and bread, tender pastas. The main room is lively but for a real treat, ask for a place in the wine cellar.

We were here with a rather large group, seated in a small alcove/private area towards the back. The service was great and the food excellent. The wine selection is also very good. My only qualm was the way they pushed the first wine on the host. It was obviously out of our price range, and although ordered, I think he... More

Menu a bit confusing however the waiters are happy to help.... One of... More

Recent repeat visit for lunch. Food and service were great. Our waiter was helpful in selecting wine and starters. Kale salad and Fava Bean salad were spectacular. Swordfish entree was equally enjoyable. The big disappointment came in the restroom! Despite all of the herbs and candles, the smell of urine was sickeningly overpowering. Our dining party all detected and suspected... More

We went with two Italian foodie friends who gave it high marks. The cacio e pepe did not quite convince the table at first, but people grew to like it better as they neared the sauce at the bottom. The short rib panino was not quite up to the standards of the short-ribs at Da Marcella, much less the Gotham,... More
