Came here after visiting the 9/11 museum. Grilled panini with eggplant was outstanding. Chicken parmigiana excellent as well. Service excellent. Very nice ambiance. Outside seating available but we wanted to get out of the sun for awhile. A good place to relax. Highly recommend!

We went for a late lunch, early supper (lupper!) The food was great, plentiful and the atmosphere was very laid back. Glasses of wine and you can't go wrong. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a reasonable meal in the City.
