Heard about this place for many years and finally visited this past weekend. Went for pizza, but we were so hungry we sat inside and had dinner. The restaurant was totally packed and the service was very slow. But we came for the food and not the service. I had eggplant parmigiana whic I use to personally rate Italian restaurants. It came with a tiny potato croquette and some broccoli rabb, nothing to write home about. The eggplant was good, probably an 8. However, the spumoni ice cream put a great end to the meal. So good, we brough some home. The place was good enough to make me want to return. However, for excellent Italian food in NYC, nothing beats Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, where the eggplant parmigiana is close to a 10. Sorry I didn't try their much acclaimed pizza, but no room for it. The ambiance and the spumoni means that I shall return.
