“Excellent Italian food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

went with a group of 7. were seated with no problem at a large round table. ordered, calamari, fried cheese and garlic bread apps, all were excellent and there was plenty for 7 with one order each. entrees were several pizzas, chicken parms, and chicken valdostana (which waiter recommended). all entrees were very good, the valdostana was one of the best chicken dishes I have ever eaten (chicken stuffed with ricotta and spinich). all entrees came with a side of pasta with either tomato or garlic sauce (I recommend the garlic). skipped dessert since we were too full.

staff was excellent, and attentive. empty plates were cleared quickly and waters were refilled without request. Waiter was great and really knew menu.

“Very Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Pizza - ultra thin, limited topping and burnt. Which was disappointing as ones available for takeaway before you enter restaurant looked nice.
Other half got an belowe average Pasta dish
Dessert nice, but nothing special.
Only two of us ate, but 18% gratuity added claiming 6 on table on the receipt.

“Che Bella vita in Napoli!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Rustic ambience. Authentic Italian cooking just like nonna's. Very friendly and welcoming right from the beginning. We were treated just like part of their family. An excellent overall dining experience, with reasonable pricing. We would definitely return on our next visit to NYC.

“Tasty Calzones and Pies”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

This is a nice place to grab take out pizza slices. I love the spinach pie and marinara sauce. Just around the corner from my favorite hotel, the Chandler.
