Off the beaten path, this northern Italian is a hidden gem. If I could I'd of given it 4 1/2 stars. Had octopus appetizer and fish main course here several times and keep returning. But my colleagues have enjoyed everything else on the menu, too. About $75@ including wine.

Don't be put off by the somewhat downmarket appearance and narrow entrance and dining room; you are in for a treat! Olives and delicious bread are delivered automatically, the menu has appealing Italian dishes, and the wines are very well chosen. Even wines by the glass are poured from the bottle but only after you are offered a taste. The... More

Really amazing evening. Located on a nondescript street but once you enter, you are in a pretty unique place. Bar dining up front with a very nice dining room in the back. Staff was very attentive and friendly. We ate three courses and drank a couple bottles of wine. Next time I am in that part of NYC, I am... More

Lovely small personal restaurant. Food was great. Service was impeccable. Great care is taken to match interesting flavors and foods together - it is not your run of the mill restaurant. Excellent wine selection.

Best service we had all week! These folks know how to make you feel like guests in someone's home. This place is worth going to just for the small setting and doting service. The food was delightful. If they served spirits, I would give them 5 stars. But the wine list was adequate. You should go here for the sole... More

Six from our family enjoyed dinner here on a Friday evening prior to going to the theater. We picked the place based on other reviews and its proximity to the theater. Our welcome was warm and hospitable. We sat at the narrow bar and enjoyed a drink while waiting for our entire party to arrive. The bartender was very pleasant.... More

Loved this restaurant- on entry we were led down a tiny stairs into what felt like someone's living room for a delicious authentic Italian meal- the service was excellent and I recommend looking to sit in the overflow area- such a great experience!

I was expecting a more romantic atmosphere. I'd planned a romantic evening and I found the place quite noisy. The service is ok, the sommeliere simply took her "right of cork" glass of our bottle without even saying a word. Uncool. The food was very good.
