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

Lovely Family dinner before the show. All of our meals were good and very filling. A bit pricey, but still very good meal and portions. We sat inside, but close to the window, and it was very nice.

The restaurant itself is cute, and we went on a rainy night so the place wasn't packed- which meant service was on point. We all ordered different types of lasagna and salads. The food was good and I thought the menu had a lot to choose from. Would definitely return and try something else.

Please do not let the name fool you. This Chelsea restaurant serves more than just quality lasagna. My wife and I ate there twice during a recent 6 night trip to NYC and were not disappointed either time. The atmosphere is quiet and the service is professional and efficient. The lasagna dishes, especially the sirloin lasagna are wonderful, they also... More

At the recommendation of a hotel staff member we gave the Lasagna try for an evening meal. Not only were the wait staff very friendly but they helped us with some special requests. The meals were delicious, fresh, and served in a relaxed but attentive manner. Everything from appetizers to desserts was beyond reproach.

We got there early, about 5 pm (VERY early by NYC standards) so the service was excellent. Wife had Lasagna, I had pesco de mare. Both were excellent. Our waitress stood off to the side and watched her tables like a hawk. Just a nod to her and she was there in a "New York Minute". More like a New... More

Rushing to catch the Uptown A Train I was walking past this unbelievable smell and had to stop. It was coming from this adorable little Italian Restaurant I was passing en route to my subway stop, but the smell of roasted garlic and fresh bread stopped me in my tracts long enough for the Hostess to come outside and ask...

Visited this restaurant for the first time with another couple one of whom has a celiac condition. The restaurant was,chosen because it advertises "gluten free' pasta. However when inquiring about how the gluten free pasta was prepared the waitress checked and advised that it is not prepared so as to prevent cross-contamination (same pot used as for regular pasta) That...

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
