We went on a weeknight, so avoided some of the long waits other people have experienced, especially on the weekends. We have been twice, once they were taking reservations and once they weren't. So that is a puzzle. But they do take your cell phone number and call when you are up. It can take a long time so if it looks bad you can go to a nearby bar and hang out. Or you can line up before they open. Once you have fought your way in, it is worth it.
They have authentic Italian and since I am Italian, I really appreciate how close they are getting to the smells, taste and ambience of Italian food. We had a seafood with homemade fetuccine and the gnocchi with a black truffle flavor. Both were outstanding. We finished off sharing spumoni ice cream, which was rich and creamy. If they didn't have the seating problem, this would be a 5 star. Service was good and prices very reasonable.
