Unfortunately, the fact that the restaurant did not honor our reservation for close to 30 minutes, our lovely before theater dinner, was rushed and not as enjoyable as previous dinners at this establishment. A party of ten was forty minutes late getting to the restaurant....More

Truly average Italian...and why bother with that in NYC!!! Had restaurant week prix fixe. Meatballs okay, but far from awesome. Pasta alla vodka okay, but definitely nothing special. Chocolate mousse - meh! The restaurant is pleasant. Was near empty at a mid-week lunch.
