This place looks like every other Italian place on this block of 23rd street but I was really impressed. We had pizza as an appetizer and I could see by my reaction and everyone at my table that we were wowed! Salad arrived and was fresh and had a light but favorable balsamic vingerette. I had seafood with linguini which was perfectly cooked, others had fish and risotto and gnocchi. We shared a cannoli which I would also recommend but get three if more than one person wants to dive in.
