We passed this restaurant on our way to a Matinee show & thought we might stop in afterwards. Very glad we did. Cozy atmosphere with excellent service. The food was excellent and attractively presented. Caesar salad, Beet/goat cheese salad, Mushroom stuffed pasta (similar to ravioli), and Angel Hair pasta with vegetables were all terrific. They also have a good selection... More

Great food. Great service. Great people. We really enjoyed this place. We ate here before a broadway show and were so impressed, we came back the next evening after the show. Very nice portions at reasonable prices. Mmmmmm.

Stumbled upon this restaurant in 1996 during one of my 1st visits to NYC. Try to revisit this restaurant whenever I am back in town. It's near the theatre district without being overwhelmed by the Broadway crowds. Was just there on Sept 29th & it was as wonderful as I have come to expect & upon which I can rely.... More

We stopped here for an early dinner and weren't disappointed. We've gone to their sister restaurant, Rachel's, for years and really enjoy it. We ordered 2 personal pizzas with a side salad and the crab cakes dinner. All were very good. However we thought the 2 little crab cakes, although delicious, were overpriced at $22. Service was excellent, so we'll... More

This is was a very good choice for a post theater dinner. The service was excellent, fast and efficient. The waiter recommended their house chianti that was not outrageous in price and tasted very good. All of us had a pasta dish and everyone enjoyed their meal. I would return given the opportunity.

This is a small, little Italian restaurant in the theatre district. They have a pre-show dinner meal that's not advertised well, but its a great bargain. Make sure you ask to see it since it shows online but was not included with the menu. It was a beautiful evening and they had the doors open so the fresh air could... More

Always looking for something different for a before theatre dinner. I have been heading over to the Hell's Kitchen area more and more to try out the offerings there. Last week it was Marseille for Saturday Brunch and this week it was Pietrasanta. It's at the corner of 47rh and Ninth on the west side of Ninth. There is a... More

Stopped by here on a whim and enjoyed a great dinner. Great appetizers, delicious entrées and good wines. The window seats are great as you get to watch NY walk by as you eat.
