Came across this lovely restaurant as we were looking for a steak house. Had lovely steak as my husband had pasta. Good customer service, a bit pricey but it was a special occasion for us. Will eat here again when we visit in future.

Very poor service. Waited 30 minutes (I finally had to squeeze through tables and go to the bar) to get a glass of wine. Server never filled water glasses.... until we ordered coffee.

We stopped by for a late dessert. Good selections. We chose an apple tarts with decaf cappuccinos. Both were exceptional. Only issue was the service was slow. However, they were crowded.

Small neighborhood Italian restaurant right next to the Marriott and several other high end hotels off of Lexington and 49th. Very good food. Neighborhood feel. Lots of languages heard throughout the restaurant and seemed to be Italian proprietorship and most staff. Medium price range and very good food!
