Great service, great food and good value for money - we ate here twice in a week. There are lots of Fast Food and Buffett type restaurants nearby but this is a "proper" full service NY Italian place!

We ate here on a Saturday night and absolutely loved the food and the experience! We had to move our reservation ahead by 30 minutes and they had not problem accommodating us. The pizza was excellent ( the small size was enough for one person) and the pasta dishes the others in our group had all received great reviews. The... More

I think we anticipated more of a New York style pizza but they serve a rather Italian style. Our pizza had what might have been a ricotta/Parmesan blend with no identifiable mozarella. The marinara was on top of the layers of cheese then meat. Rather than a pizza sauce it was marinara. The calzone was good. The calamari fritti was... More

Thankfully we made a reservation via Open Table the night before. Saturday night after Christmas was ridiculously busy. We were 10 minutes late for our reservation but we only had to wait 10 more minutes. It seemed like they were a little aggressive with how long they claimed walk ups would have to wait. Food was very good I asked... More

Qualifications: New Yorker, foodie, traditional italian family, refer to sauce as "gravy", Ok, here we go... A block away from Rockefeller center, not an italian host, bartender or employee to be found yet the food was REALLY good - like momma makes good. Pasta is cooked in salted water and prepared perfectly. The "litmus test" for Italians is Vodka Sauce...... More

We enjoyed our meal here, and the service was fine, but although the food was quite good, we didn't think the servings were that big, especially given the lunch prices.

All of our food was wonderful. Prices were not too bad for the location and portions were good. The only complaint is no refills on drinks. I hate places that serve you salty food then give you a tiny $5 coke with no refills :/

Really lovely food. Huge portions and attentive staff. From the outside it doesn't look very inviting but don't let that put you off.
