“Nice atmosphere and pasta”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

The decor here is lovely and it's a nice place to stop in any time of year. If you're just looking for a bright and energetic place for a glass of wine with friends at the bar, there is a friendly banter at their bar. If you're ordering apps, the grilled octopus is a favorite but be mindful that the $10+ blue fin tuna app is just a can of tuna that has had the lid taken off--served in the can. The pastas are delicious with generous portions.

“A gem!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

One of our favorite spots in the Hamptons. The minestrone soup is so fresh and tasty; the linquine with clams perfect with just the right amount of garlic; the orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe with a bit of red pepper and lovely sauce, sausage pizza with great crust -- have never had a single negative dish. Wine is served to you in an individual carafe and wine selection very good. The bartenders are so friendly and helpful - you won't be disappointed.

“Good food but weird atmosphere”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Food can be very good, it just always has a funny smell in this place. Plus the front is a local sports bar feel and the back is Siberia.

“Cute place but the service is just not there”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Went in for some wine and appetizers around 4 pm and the manager quickly told us that there was no food served yet. We waited for table service in the bar but after 10 minutes walked up to the bar and ordered a bottle ourselves.

Wine was a little overpriced but what ruined it was they gave water glasses for the wine! When ur charging 60-100 for a bottle if wine you want wine glasses. No water was offered and after the bottle was empty the bar waiter asked if we needed anything. We ordered another bottle and a carafe of water and waiter just set it down on table with the glasses.

I would not go back. There are so many places that value customer service unfortunately this is not one of thise

“People Watching”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

If you enjoy throngs of people on a crowded
street, in and outdoor dining, a busy bar,
and a fun crowd, you'll love this spot.
Food is not the main event.
