Wonderful place, outstanding pasta, good selection of Italian wine ranging from a northern sauvignon blanc to a fine super Tuscan. I had the fusilli with spicy sausage (nice sauce) and the lemon sorbet for dessert. Both left good feelings plus nice ambience for the restaurant...More

The service at this neighborhood Italian restaurant is spot on. The Thai waiter has been there since two years before the place opened in 1984 and you can tell he enjoys his job. Buffalina pizza was enjoyable as was the mezzaluna salad and the pasta....More

This is a bit of a "sleeper" restaurant. It looks unassuming from the outside and the decor inside is casual and a bit busy if you ask me, but the pizza is among the best on the UES. Their salads are worth a try too....More

You are kidding yourself if you call yourself an Italian food fan and don't go to this place. It is a fabulous, family, neighborhood eating place that is clearly a great place to enjoy classic Italian. The pizza is superb and the pasta is out...More
