“Excellent Pasta in hip location”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

This is a great restaurant in the heart of the Chelsea urban scene. In addition to serving superb and creative pasta there is also a take-out. There is a nice selection of wine and beer, some locally sourced.

Too bad they can't do something about the noise level. It was hard to carry on a conversation because everyone is shouting in order to be heard.

“Excellent Experience, wonderful food”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I would definitely return to this restaurant. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, the food was delicious and the place itself was beautiful, alive and busy. We enjoyed a pasta Spinach And Ricotta Girasole crispy parmigiano reggiano and the Pan - Roasted Baby Chicken crispy bacon, rosemary, shallot. Both were excellent. We shared a large bottle of mineral water and a glass of wine each. With tax and tip it cost about $100.00. Pricey, but a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

“Best Raviolli Ever!!!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

What a wonderful find for lunch. The lobster mezzaluna was delicious and the spinach raviolis were out of this world. Go to the Chelsea Market and browse while working up an appetite, have lunch here and then take a walk on the highline. If you don't know what the highline is you must find out. Just ask someone in the market how to access it.
