On our last night in NYC we wanted to celebrate with a special meal, this place did not disappoint. Our meals were divine and so flavourful - even our fussy daughters enjoyed their chicken parmigiana! Felt so authentically Italian. Highly recommend.

It is small and cozy, I didn't think it was especially quiet although we sat in front near the door, there were more tables toward the back which may be quieter. The food is very good and we enjoyed our dinner.
