“Authentic Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Quaint Italian in a tucked away place. Definitely worth the trip. Only about 11 tables in the place, but took the advise of other reviewers and could not be more satisfied! A must do!!!

“It all works!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

As a New Yorker, I have eaten at numerous Italian restaurants all over the City. This place was excellent and very authentic Italian food. Veal Parm, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Baked Clams, Baked Shrimp in garlic, all Amazing!
Enter into one dining room, and then through the kitchen to another dining room, which was very comfortable. Waiters were attentive and helpful with the menu.
Just doesn't get better than this!!!

Best food we ate in NYC! Authentic Italian cuisine served in a family environment. It was a perfect third wedding anniversary dinner. Thanks Ballatos!

“TOP ITALIAN FOOD WITH SIMPLICITY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I love this hidden place in SOHO. Every I am in NYC it is a must stop and I always take my friends.
The price is low compared with those in the city and the food is divine.
Is a haunt for celebrities asJustin Bieber and Rihanna.
In my opinion they have the best Spaghetti with Meatballs in NYC.
