On our last visit we had lunch here so this time we decided to eat in the evening. We had a reservation but we waited quite a while for our table as other customers were taking time to leave the restaurant.The food was good although some of the meat dishes were probably a little overpriced. Having said that the wine... More

This our 2nd time having dinner here. We were in the city last September and stumbled upon it. The service is outstanding! Ben Hur was our waiter and made us feel like family. He was very attentive and so nice. The food was wonderful! We had the homemade gnocchi and another homemade pasta. Very nice wine selection too!

Small mirrored room with very attentive service and fresh Italian food. Chicken Parmesan was amazing and is served like a round pizza. Eggplant Parmesan was delicious and came with a small salad. The eggplant sauce was a bit oily. Large portions--can easily share.

Some of the best Italian food you will get in the City. Close to the Hilton and Warwick hotels. The Ossobuco Milanese was superb. The Sea Bass Branzino was moist and delightful. The Dusty Manhattens lived up to their reputation. Very classy but friendly. Alessandro our waiter handled our requests to perfection.

We had lunch at this Italian Restaurant. Staff was very friendly, classy atmosphere and typical Italian food. We had the Caesar Salad and Gnocchi, and Tiramisu as dessert. Would definitely come again!

I work nearby, and finally stopped in to this welcoming looking restaurant. Stopped in for a lunch while roaming the city, sight seeing and shopping. Staff was warm and welcoming. We loved Ben, our waiter. Good wine list. We spit the grilled octopus app. Tender and tasty, one of the best I've had. My risotto with mushrooms was delicious, just... More

We ate at this restaurant in July and experienced great service and good food. However, our visit last was very disappointing. While the food in July was outstanding, the chicken dish that I ordered was almost inedible. It was dry and tasteless. The root vegetable that were served with it were also tasteless. My husband ordered the sea scallops, as... More

We were really looking forward to another return to this restaurant, each experience had been excellent. This time was no exception. The service and food were outstanding. I'd highly recommend the black/squid ink tagliatelle. Appetizers, entrees were excellent, as was dessert. The wine list is extensive, by the glass and bottle.

Great Italian meal in midtown. Walk from the Hilton on 6th is less than 5 minutes. Food was superb and the staff were well versed in the menu and wines. Be prepared to make friends as some of the tables are pretty tight.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
