Great food and atmosphere. The staff were very competent and attentive. Thank you Simone and colleages. Prices were shown on TA as high end, but we felt they were quite reasonable - it is NYC! Will not hesitate to go back.

Just loved this small and intimate Italian restaurant. A cut above the average with excellent food and service. Just on the edge of Hell’s Kitchen area near our Doubletree Hilton Hotel. Would definitely recommend.
