The food was just ok. Granted we went during the holiday season but the service was not very good, not very attentive , orders were mixed up and extremely slow. We waited about 45 minutes even with reservations. I would not go back.

We came here for a quick lunch. The server was relatively efficient although he had too many tables to manage alone. The food wasn't too bad, we ordered enough and they offer different sized plates. We ordered chicken and two pastas.

I believe it is possible, since it's located in the Times Square, but it will better to look into their website. We went there for dinner.
