Good Italian restaurant

Small Italian restaurant. Good service. The bread was fresh and good. The ravioli with bolognese was freshly made and tasty. The lemon sorbet was served in carved out lemon and was very natural tasting. Caprese salad could have used basil and drizzle of oil. I would definitely recommend.

Thanks to open table I found this amazin gem. Small yet cozy restaurant in the union square area. I decided to try them out and give them my test. Basically if the lasagne is good then everything else should follow. I was right. Perfect portion, meaty with flavor. Great job

It was Monday, so maybe they had an off day, but this experience did not live up to the hype. The décor and ambiance were great. The service friendly but very slow. The food, ok, not great. We had four people and traded bites. The Chicken Cacciatore was excellent. The ravioli, linguini and another pasta dish were just ordinary.

I knock noisy restaurants off my list every week, but not Paul and Jimmy's. It is deliciously quiet where you can sit for a long, lovely meal of Italian classics and pleasant conversation. The wait staff here is very accommodating, so if you want some thing special, ask and they will do their best to please you. The white table... More

In New York for a dinner with my children to celebrate a graduation and we couldn't have picked a better place. Service was excellent and food was outstanding. Server was very friendly and joking but not overly so. I had the lentil salad special which was unique and delicious. Others had a broccoli small plate that was equally good. Two... More

Special for the night - Liver - could cut it with a fork. Lovely mild sauce. Others at the table had pasta. All enjoyed their food too. Quiet atmosphere making it nice to sit and visit without shouting.

I would use the Ap 4square in finding restaurants with a 9 or better rating. We fell for the location to the W Hotel and it's "old" Zagat sign. Great bartender, so stopping for a drink is ideal, but I would eat elsewhere.

Okay, so we spent hours in this restaurant...but NOT because the service was slow, either. You see, we were invited to a small birthday dinner for a close friend at this restaurant, to which my wife and I had never been, and before that, it turned out to be convenient to first meet friends from Germany that were visiting NYC,...

Three pieces lunch in an almost empty restaurant near Gramercy park. Food was good, the dessert cheese cake had flavour but was a little too cold. Friendly staff but billing took quite a long time. Relaxed experience.

Dropped in by myself early (7pm) on a Monday night. The place was empty but i decided to still ho ahead. Only tried their carbonara which was really good but you do have to love super aldente pasta :-). Sauce was rich but you could taste it was freshly made. Nice chillout music in the background. It hit the spot... More
