We've lived in Dumbo for over 7 years, and from the very first night, it's been our absolute favorite. The pastas are all homemade, and the whole roasted branzini is my favorite fish in the world. They always have incredible lasagna, burrata, fresh cheeses, and...More

Every dish we tasted was good and unexpected. Service was very friendly and although no kids menu, Kung Fu panda was projected on the wall which kept my children quiet and happy. Prices are reasonable as wall.

Stopped in for a quick lunch before a flight. Gazpacho was average, heavy on the onion and garlic but edible. I had a nice pasta with vodka sauce. Overall on my short visit I'd say the food is serviceable but not authentic or rustic. This...More
