Good upper East side New York southern Italian food .
Service if it could be called that is awful shocking . My wife used a bit of broken Italian and the waiter gruffly responded "don't try speaking Italian with me?"
We were all taken back
Amuse Bouche brought to table before all guests arrived
Tone of the evening was amazingly bad . No one bothered to ask " was everything OK?"
Who manages this place?
Looking for hospitality? Go elsewhere! Numbers of alternatives in the area .

Booked for our last night in the city. Lovely people, we got stuck in traffic due to the rain so we were 15 mins late but they still held our table. The people are so welcoming and will cater to any request. The food is quite expensive, so make sure you really like Italian! Small place but worth it - the creamy truffle papperdellie was amazing. Thanks for a great night with great vibes! Recommend to any Italian food lover!

A fantastic Italian restaurant - you'll need to know what you want and be assertive - but the staff is there is make it a great evening. The quarters are tight, busy and noisy - but the food, vibe and feel is truely New York. The food, appetizers and meal is fresh and high energy.

If you like Italian food, the way Italian food was served in NYC in the 70's, then you will enjoy the place. The tables here are very close to one another and if you are claustrophobic, this is not the place for you. It is dark and crowded. To some that is part of the charm.
