We are happy that our friends recommended this restaurant for a dinner. I had the most delicious pasta in my life. Beside pastas, starters are also very good. So if you like Italian food, you should definitely go there.

Best spaghetti vongole I've ever had! Don't miss this tiny, tucked away delight. The small interior is quiet and charming and iIn good weather, there's a patio out back.

From the outside this restaurant doesn't look like much and unless you have been told the location, its hidden well. However the food is very good and it is priced well for being a New York restaurant.

We were hungry after the theater and fell into this place since it was near our hotel. The staff was accommodating even though it was near closing time. Food was good,not exceptional. The bar did a good job.

Small, intimate place. Run by real Italians, which shows up in the food. The place isn't particularly flashy - I feel as if many people probably pass it by, but inside past the bar it's nice and cozy with brick walls and little Italian signs here and there. Cute place and the prices are fair and the food is really good. Of note is the brick oven pizza -The service is very friendly and generally pretty snappy.The Backyard is now open. Buon Appetito !
