This is one of my absolute favorite restaurants in NYC. The food is always innovative and delicious, and for you night owls, the kitchen is open way later than the curtains on B'way! Plus, the bar gives you a fantastic introduction to Italian wines. Call now.

This was by far the best meal we had in New York. The service was second to none, the maître d overheard my girlfriend was cold and changed the a/c settings without us asking. The food was simply phenomenal, when we passed our compliments to the kitchen they seemed genuinely happy. If you're in the area make sure you go,... More

The restaurant seemed to be booked when I looked from the TableOnline, but we went anyway and a helpful waitress seated us in the back just close to the open kitchen. It was interesting to watch the cooks working on the dishes. The food was delicious, fresh pasta with excellent saves. The wines were paired extremely well with the wines,... More

We wanted a new restaurant to try in NYC so went here on the advice of a friend. We gave up our reserved table for a place at the "cooks bar" so that we could watch the preparation of meals. So happy we did. It was facinating and we tried more than we normally would since we could see it... More

This restaurant was very easy to get to. Located on 8th Avenue within a very short walk of the E-train, 14th Street station. The appetizer of charred Octopus was excellent and our main dishes comprised of Tagliatelle Bolognese and Orzo were flavorful and very tasty. Dessert menu was somewhat limited, but our choices were a good compliment to end dinner.... More

I heard about this restaurant by reading a profile of one of my favorite baseball players. It was mentioned that this is his favorite restaurant in NY to dine in. Since I am a big fan of the team he plays on as well, I wanted to give this place a try. Me and my wife decided to come here... More

Into the City for brunch with friends and a busy day of touring. No better spot to avoid the rain and start off than this cozy Italian spot in the West Village...alert...extremely difficult to find on-street parking, but there is a pay garage on Jane, half a block away. Apparently this restaurant is not open for luncheons during the week,... More

Recently my husband and I wanted to come in for a casual night from the burbs to NYC. We wandered around the West Village and found this cute Italian place. It was very crowded and popular. The food was great. The portion size is small, but it's priced accordingly so you can order a couple of items. When the hostess... More

I would go back here every opportunity I get! Start with interesting bruschetta choices--enough to make a meal if you like, and fun to share (1, 3 or 5 topping mixes to put on grilled bread). I had the most amazing Panzanella Salad, with little bread compared to some bread salads, but a fabulous mix of summer squashes shaved very... More

Small popular neighborhood place with a fine menu of classic and modern Italian dishes. This isn't an old fashioned red-sauce restaurant, but it retains enough of the classics to please fans of that approach. Moderately priced. Decent wine list. We had salads and pasta dishes--both prepared with fresh ingredients and moderate portions. Nice wait staff. One caveat for anyone not... More
