We enjoyed the Funghi misti pizza. Nancy's chopped salad was pretty good size and we took half of it home. The chicken liver BRUSCHETTE was OK and would not order it again. We finished our meal with a very tasty, but a little icy blood orange sorbet,Gianduia and pistachioes gelato. service was a mix of ignoring us about 15 to 20 minutes between our salad and the pizza and rushing us to order dessert at the end.

Waited almost an hour even though we had reservations. They did make up for it by giving us a free round of drinks. The waitress didn't seem to know much about wine, I asked for a dry white and more specifically drier than what I had just finished. She gave me something really sweet and I had to get something else. My husband really liked our bone marrow appetizer and we both liked the pizzas we selected. The meat lovers was very nice! I have to mark them down because even though it is good food and by celebrity chefs it is still too overpriced. The restaurant is very small and has European seating so be prepared.

We loved our dinner at this restaurant. We were seated in the smaller room to the left as you enter, holding about 6 tables, so it was probably a bit quieter there. We had a great server who answered all of our questions about some of the unusual ingredients that were featured on the menu.

The pizzas were terrific! The crust was so light and tender, not thick and doughy like many places. Others have complained that the prices were high. We felt that they were reasonable for the high quality received.

Others also complained about the high prices of a glass of wine. However, they did not mention that you receive a small carafe that actually held about two (small) glasses of wine.

Would love to go there today but it’s 400 miles from home!

Superb Pizza....Lamb shank special was amazing. Extensive wine list and service was impeccable. Desserts were great too. Cant rave enough of this place. Not that heavy on the pocket either considering that its one of Batali's outpost. Laid back but regal ambiance. No worries about parking as they do valet service. Nice restaurant in a nice neighborhood. Cant ask for more.

Went on a weekend for lunch. Enjoyed the pizza (goat cheese, green onion....), fried zuccini blossoms appetizers. The chopped salad was ok - but I don't like radiccio that much and this salad uses a fair amount of it so I wouldn't order that again. The dessert - the frozen meyer lemon pie was great - the candied lemon peel on top was wonderful. I'd love a jar of that to take home ! The tables and stools are packed in quite tight - so you are quite close to your neighbors. I wouldn't want to sit at their bar if all the seats were full - too tight. If full - the room could be very noisy. Lunch or dinner - you have to valet your car. ($5 for lunch, $7 for dinner )
