The food is really really good. Everyone loved their appetizer and their entree. There were only two waiters who worked very hard but you could tell they were overwhelmed serving multiple tables and managing a small bar at the front. There was also no hostess when we walked in. The pictures online show a cover for the patio but that... More

Booked for wedding Rehersal dinner for 18 people, staff coped well with timely serving of drinks and food.Guests chose varied dishes from the menu this did not phase the staff. Italian twist made for original feel to choice.V reasonably priced. Plates clear at end-now thats a great advert !! Garden with lovely weather gave the perfect backdrop. Thank you.

Between 11th and 12th streets on the west side of Avenue B, it is easy to miss but a great find. The owner Alberto and his staff are gracious and attentive. My personal favorite, duck breast with a farro in a red wine reduction is a must have. The garden is a hidden gem. An oasis in the East Village.

I don't know if it's the choice in the menu to picked from or was it me! But it turned out I picked the pretty rich foods. I had the fried battered asparagus with an interesting dip that had chopped capers. Next choice was the gnocchi served in a shell made of Parmesan cheese with cheesy sauce. It certainly was... More

Very attentive service, visited on a Sunday night. There are not many tables, so make sure you have a reservation. The food arrives quickly, while the menu is not extensive, everything was fresh and prepared with care. Very tasty, homemade pasta creations, which can all be ordered in both half and full portions. A nice small bar to serve the... More

This is becoming our 'go to' place for excellent Italian food in NYC. The menu has some standards, some innovative dishes & something for everyone. No scene, no A-list celebs, just friendly staff, terrific patio and reliably delicious meal. If the weather is bad make a reservation because the dining room is small.

Have eaten here about ten times and am always pleasantly surprised how good their food is. The vegetable dishes were as good as I have ever had.

Sit in the rear patio. Excellent appetizers, eggplant parm, calamari, ,etc. Entrees were fine, but not extraordinary. Very friendly service.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
