Was a little worried at first glance as you have to walk through the pizza joint to get to the dining room. Once we opened that door and the wonderful smells hit my nose I was very happy! The restaurant is very tiny which I like and the menu quite extensive. Our waiter was very sweet and attentive and we... More

It's the local pizzeria / Italian restaurant. It is basic but what makes New York, New York. Well done an a great place to go any time you want good food at a fair price.

I just don't eat here anymore. The food is not very good. I wouldn't recommend it. The last time I ate here, I ordered "sole", but ... it was not very good.

A friend who has lived in the neighbourhood for over 20 years discovered this place. We went and had a great meal. My dish of lobster, cod, calamari and mussels cost $20.

This is a lovely restaurant that treats it's customers right. They serve delicious food with large portions and the prices are very good. If you are looking for real Italian food, then this is the place. The owner even visits your table to see how you are enjoying your meal.
