My husband and I discovered this restaurant basically by accident while seeking a place for a late lunch. We were warmly welcomed. Service was attentive and professional, with a minor mistake in my order instantly corrected with an appropriate apology. The food was fresh and tasty, and price couldn't be beat. A delightful discovery.

Awful. In the menù nothing seemed Italian. And nothing was at the end of night. We ordered pasta: Bolognese, and with clams. The firsr was over cooked, over over! The second with some prepared toppings. Disgusting. The only eatable thing was the Napolitana pizza. We will never be back here.

Cheap Italian. Black linguine pasta not good at all. Fishy off taste. Lamb shank very good. Good bread and inexpensive wines. Too bad the pasta was disappointing.

In the city for a Saturday night no reservations and feeling a good pasta dinner? This is the place. The place is small and loud but the food is delicious, the service is top notch and the prices are so reasonable. The Mozzarella stuffed with ricotta served over pesto was so good we could have eaten 1 order each rather... More

We stopped at this eatery after watching the Village Halloween parade for a short time. Many places in the area, but overpriced in my opinion and with long lines. They were able to seat us immediately and the place was packed! Great selection of pasta dishes and pizza to choose from. The green salad was enough for 2 of us.... More

One of my friends ordered a really good plate of pasta, never tasted a meal like this. Lunch menu is cheap w/ soup or green salad and a good choice of lunch meal. Very tasty, good sizes, good prices, nice place between soho et meatpacking after a shopping morning ! I recommend !

Wonderful menu with large selection of great pasta dishes with varied sauces and ingredients. Hearty, decent portions with reasonable prices for the area. Service is prompt and friendly. The place is small, so expect tight seating, and for post-meal lounging to be discouraged (depending how busy it is), though not in a rude way.

Loved it, found it just walking around, couldn't have been happier with the outcome. Four of us, accommodated without reservation even though very crowded. Food was awesome, nice/simple wine selection, good cocktails. Very cool place.

This place stands the test of time. We were regulars/fans beginning in the early 2000's. An extensive menu is the only challenge but specials are always safe. Affordable prices and great service. Just beware of small tables and maximum patrons makes this spot best for couples. Pastas, salads, and pizzas all top notch.

We arrived spontaneously, and had to wait for a table. It worth it because their food is very good, and very reasonably priced. Endless selection of pasta, great pizza. The only thing you should consider when visiting this place is that it is very very noisy, and that you will have hard time listening to each other.

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
