Was looking for another restaurant but was closed due to Thanksgiving Day. So walk around and find this. It was an unexpected find. Was sceptical when we entered the restaurant at 1:30pm when there is no guest in the restaurant. But the experience was great. The food was really good. We had set lunches that is really value for money.... More

We stopped for a quick dinner on our way to Atlantic theatre. Looked like a nice place for a romantic dinner - dimly lit, candles, white tablecloth. Everything was just right except for the blaring loud pop music. We asked twice to turn down the volume and eventually they did but not by much. Other than that, a cordial server,... More

We stopped in to have a cold drink and obtain directions. Bar tender was extremely friendly and helpful in getting us to our destination. Will definitely make this our lunch or dinner destination during our next destination.

We had the best brunch! The egg dishes were amazing, the service was attentive, and the atmosphere was so relaxing for a Sunday morning. The mimosas and bellinis were a great addition to our meals. Highly recommend eating here.

Everything about this place I love. The food is excellent, the service excellent, and the ambiance excellent. I have been here numberous times and have never been dissapointed. Def a gem in NYC, affordable as well. My favorite dishes are the farfalle vodka and the lasagna (of course since its their name)

OMG! Yum. Pasta to die for! I had the penne alla vodka with chicken and a Caesar salad. Asked the waiter for a reco on a nice dry meaty red wine and he was spot on. Heavy white linens and silver wear without feeling stuffy. A really nice place to grab a casual drink ( nice quiet small bar) and... More

A friend and I ate an early dinner here before seeing a dance concert at the Joyce Theater (just two blocks away). The staff was pleasant and the food was very good. The portions were large enough that we were able to share a house salad and a special breast of chicken dish with shallots, artichokes and white wine sauce... More

Today I called for a home delivery for lunch. A lady answered the phone and I asked her if she could tell me what are the lunch specials because I have no menu. She told me that she had customers waiting and that she didn't have time to go through the lunch special list with me. But, I could find... More
