You could eat here every day. The pasta is homemade, varied and amazing. The appetizers are amazing. The Owners and Staff are amazing…and it is reasonably priced. My suggestion? Bring a friend, get a good bottle of wine, order 3 appetizers and split a pasta...dish. You will be full and happy. You will swear to return with another friend. Easily as good as the best Italian cuisine in the city, at a fair price, and with a laid back atmosphereMore

I've always loved their food! They opened at the end of 2019 and now they came back stronger than before! Great dishes, the octopus pasta is a MUST! The fresh Tuna Tartare deserves his part as well. We ended with delicious cannolis and a limoncello...shot! Definitely recommended!More

Really good Italian food. The pasta selection is solid and I truly recommend the pasta al giusto. The service perfectly matches this place’s fine fare. The waitstaff led by their manager Laura are friendly and efficient. Worth a second visit

I went there with my friends and we ordered bruschetta as appetizer: delicious! The manager helped us with a great choice: Octopus Pasta - a MUST have! The rest of the staff was very nice and polite and I felt like home. I’m Italian and...it’s hard for me to find a good place with authentic italian food and a perfect balance quality/price. I’ll definitely go back!More

Being Italian, my husband and I wanted to try this new restaurant that we had heard well about. We started with the pepata di cozze and moscardini in umido as appetizers. Both delicious. We then continued with rigatoni alla carbonara and tonnarelli cacio e pepe....Both excellent, especially the cacio e pepe, which is creamed at the table, in a wheel of pecorino cheese. The portions are generous and we no longer had space for the promising sweets. However, they offered us two small cannoli that we enjoyed, really tasty! Attentive service and friendly staff, especially Domenico who cheered us up the evening. A must try if you want to taste real Italian cuisine.More

Very nice food, great service and company! I went there with our very nice italian friends who lives in NY and they invited us to live a real italian home made pasta experience... And that´s exactly what it is! Thanks a lot for that night....The food is amazing and the people who work there, including Luigui (the owner) are wonderful guys.More
