NYC has tons of restaurants and how do you choose? This restaurant was on the hotels list of nearest restaurants. After doing research on trip advisor we decided to go here.. We couldn't have been any happier. Very authentic Italian restaurant. I had seafood fruits de mar, others had chicken Parmesan and pasta with a mushroom sauce. We all enjoyed... More

I plan on going back again the next time I'm in NY. I'm so happy they offer gluten-free noodles. The food was excellent. Not the average Italian place. The service was terrific also. The place is a tad small, but what do you expect for a small NY restaurant? It's also loud, so it's not a place to be quietly... More

Very small, quaint restaurant. Everything from start to finish was delicious. Small portion of pesto was enough for me. One son had black ink pasta which I will go back to get myself! Prices are great as is staff.

We ordered the linguini pescatore for two. It has shellfish, calamari, mussels, shrimps, clams, linguini and a red sauce. The bread was fresh and served with black olives. The entrée was delicious and plentiful. The sauce was excellent. This dish could have fed three people. They used to include a lobster tail. Don't know why they don't anymore. They do... More

Like this cozy Italian restaurant not only because of easy access location also because of very good food. I have never eaten such a wonderfully cooked salmon and even my son ate it when he was 18 months old! Very well decorated and kept warm with good management...Always reasonable pricing and nice cocktails...

It's a small NYC restaurant with tables really close together but it was cozy and they decorated nicely for the holiday season. Lived the fish and we really loved the flatbreads. Good experience here, we'd go back again.

Second ave is not the gourmet center of Manhattan. Nice fun places with young crowds. At this place I was underwhelmed in every way. Average decor, average or less service, at bet average food. It is not expensive so I guess thats a plus.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
