We were in New York on business and going to this restaurant was a bit of a treat for us after our last day's work. The presentation and ambience were very good. The negatives were our waitress (not easy to understand - she recited the menu options too fast and with heroic indifference) and the food, which was bland and a long way from authentic Italian. Maybe New York Italian is different to Italian Italian - it might have been an expectation problem on our part.
So, a good place to be seen but not a good place to eat. Speaking of being seen, the lighting is so subdued (i.e. dark) that we all had considerable difficulty reading the menu.
