We enjoyed dinner, including the hanger steak, rib eye, and white fish. The appetizers and sides were great too. Good value.

Looking for a late breakfast we just missed out so decided to have an early lunch. The sandwiches were more than ample. Had to resort to using my knife and fork rather than my hands. Worth a visit day or night.

The cappuccino was lukewarm. My ravioli dish was tiny. Bread was stale and cold. Few hours after lunch my friend had stomachache and had to go to the lavatory urgently. I was having stomachache as well. Never again.

Good food in a very well location in Brooklyn. We had a good glass of wine and two very delicious pastas. The appetizer with charcuterie was also great. I will come back, sure!

Reasonably priced food on offer in an unobtrusive ambient atmosphere. I had excellent Strip steak with frites and a ceasar salad with a glass of house red for a shade over twenty dollars, at lunch.
