This is a clever idea where the restaurant has a basic tomato sauce, lasagna and then the patron choses what filling goes into the final creation. It works well, but some more delicate fillings (ie salmon) get a little overwhelmed in the tomato. The tiramisu is also well worth a try.

The food was really amazing. I've been there a couple of times and every time the service was awesome as well as the waiters, smiling every time and checking up on you. The pastas and the sea food are absolutely worth the price, which is not too cheap. The drinks and the beers are perfect, as well. It is, truly,... More

The food was good, the portions were good, the atmosphere was good. What more could you want. The waiter could have been more attentive but since he was busy I will just say that he was OK but could have been better. It is noisy but if you are having a good time and enjoying the food and the company... More

I admit that this is not of the cheapest restaurants in New York, but the quality of the food is absolutely worth what you're paying. The service is wonderful, your food arrives on time, the waiters were all smiles and constantly checking up on you. And the food? DELICIOUS.

This is a fairly large restaurant on a bustling corner of Chelsea. Ample indoor & outdoor seating, full bar, upscale but not stuffy. Prices are in the moderate range for NYC. A big menu full of Italian favorites & other selections. The servings are large, the service good. The food is authentic Italian-American. The sauces are thick & tasty, the... More

There seems to be a lot of hype regarding this place, but IMO (In My Opinion) the brunch food was average at best. The stand out of this locale is definitely the all you can drink option for an additional $9. During the summer days it would probably be wiser to sit indoors due to the heavy traffic up and... More

There are many things to like about this restaurant - a good location, outdoor seating (perfect for watching everyone walking by), and a nice menu, but the indifference of the staff was surprising. The food was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. With so many choices in the area it will probably be a while before I return.
