Great food, attentive service & close to the Marriott

We ate at this restaurant twice during our 7 days in NYC for 2 reasons. First time was because it was so close to the hotel we were staying at and we were over having to make decisions about where to eat when we were tired from sight seeing and didn't want to frock up, walk any further or make... read more

Please ignore any positive reviews for this restaurant....please do not go to this restaurant if you are expecting enjoyable food. Waiters are very friendly but the food is terrible...The pasta dishes, pesto, arabiata & carbonara were tasteless & unpleasant- in fact we couldn't finish them! We paid the bill but I would never return & having read the negative reviews... More

Loved the atmosphere and the pictures on walls. It... More

I went because it was close to the Marriott and got the chicken Parmesan. Big serving, great sauce and no complaints. The atmosphere was quaint, it was reasonable for nyc and the staff was very attentive. Seemed like an authentic small Italian place.

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.
