I have eaten here quite a few times and have never been disappointed. The food is terrific and the inside is cozy and sweet. The prices for Manhattan can not be beat. A lovely little find, we'll hop on the bus just to grab a bite. It can get crowded so reservations are recommended.

I have never been in a worse "restaurant" than this one. It has to be a front for something else because there's no way a restaurant this bad could whether a bad economy in NYC where great restaurants are everywhere. I don't think they understand herbs or spices. The staff seems miserable which always means the management/ owners are messed... More

The food in the place is one of the more tasteless ones we have ever tried. The atmosphere is dark and old fashion. We ordered pasta with a vodka sause and my wife got pasta alfreddo. The best part was then the waiter asked us of we wanted pepper or parmesan cheese before we even had the time to taste... More

My girlfriend is seriously allergic to garlic. Prior to making a reservation, she called to explain the situation and was assured a special dish without cross contamination would be provided for her. When we showed up for our reservation , we had with us friends from Alaska and Naples, Italy. We informed our server about the garlic issue and we... More

If there is a 0 star rating, I will give it. Foods are so-so, nothing special. But the server (202 Enrique) is extremely rude and bad in attitude. We were there on a Thursday night (not a busy night for them), but within one hour of our dinning time, the staffs there came over for more than 5 times tried... More

It's close to Bryant Park and a 5 min walk from Times Square. Very good value. Nice atmosphere for lunch, dinner and company party. Also have happy hour for red and white wine.

We ate here with three kids (young adults); it was recommended by a clerk in a hobby shop, as being delicious and not expensive. It was near our hotel, so we walked over there early evening. The atmosphere was lovely and welcoming. The menu was great, just what we were looking for. Everything we ordered was delicious, wonderful fresh bread... More

We ate here on our 1st evening in the City and loved the feel, food, service, and environment of this little gem close to our hotel (Residence Inn). Kid friendly (we ate before 8:00 pm) and perfect selection of the best Italian favorites. The decor was upscale but the prices were certainly affordable (especially for this location - Times Square... More
