We made a reservation (including 2 young children) based on TripAdvisor ratings. Our experience couldn't have been better. We were immediately greeted by friendly staff and seateed right away. Service was friendly and prompt. All staff members made us feel like we were regulars. The food was excellent. The kids had pizza and the adults had entrees. Everyone was very happy with their meal. I highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely return the next time I'm in NYC.
