“Sylish surroundings; decicious food.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I sat at the corner of the wide bar with a friend. I had the daily fixed price three course lunch. It was delicious and very well presented and good value. The food is sophisticated without being pretentious. The portions aren't large but I find that most New York restaurants give you far too much food. My friend chose off the a la carte menu which is significantly more expensive. The restaurant is well decorated; large and airy.

The barman doubled up as our watier and was very helpful and solicitous.

Justin Beiber was staying at the Langham where this restaurant is situated on the first floor on the day that I went, which meant gaining access through hundreds of sreaming teenage girls who were on the sidewalk outside!

I will definitely come again.

Strict attention to detail gives this restaurant high marks. Professional servers were proud of the product they delivered. The food was presented and described so well I could not wait to try it. I was impressed with every facet of this restaurant.

“Best Italian in NYC”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

I have been to several Italian restaurants in New York and this definitively the best one. It has a small menu but I tried 4 different plates and they were all delicious and totally different and unique. The portions are perfect small sized how an Italian restaurant should've, with a three course meal it's more than enough. The service was perfect as well. I totally recommend this it's a different but truly Italian restaurant.

“YOU CAN'T EAT AMBIANCE”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Wonderful service,but little to eat and drink at top prices.A dry martini contained about one jigger of gin alone,the rack of lamb was two lonely bones with some garnish,and not worth the price.
