Great food

Went for a rehearsal dinner so everything was family style. Hard to judge service in that situation but all of our needs were met. Most importantly, the food was absolutely delicious. I would definitely go here again when in the area.

Decent Italian food in a proper hipster Williamsburg atmosphere. The home-made pastas are great and generally speaking it does taste like fine Italian food – organically grown of course. Dishes are not overly elaborate but it's a fantastic place for a casual dinner. Tiramisù, a true challenge, was fantastic.

Pasta was literally dripping in sauce, service was ok but not super attentive. I thought it was very pricey for what it was. Atmosphere was lovely though.

The best part is the food. The menu is small but varied. The food was excellent. The quality was like eating in Italy. It was one of... More

we attended a family wedding that booked the entire restaurant. It was a lovely setting for a smallish wedding (30+). As the weather was sunny and warm, the event took place in their very Italian outdoor space. That was preceded by drinks and appetizers as guests milled about. All the apps were delicious and beautifully presented. The Meal following the... More

Had a business dinner here and left very happy! The food was awesome and the service was excellent. I had the linguine with mushrooms and sausage in cream sauce and it was heaven :) I think I inhaled in actually. Cool restaurant! You won't be disappointed.
