The old world atmosphere is charming and when paired with the staff's attention to detail, this place sets the standard for fine dining. The menu contains a wide variety of great traditional Italian fare with some unique added touches. We had a great early evening dinner after a Broadway matinee. We did not want to deal with the frantic atmosphere of the midtown scene so we hopped on the subway and headed to TriBeCa. Fortunately we had made reservations as the restaurant was filled. We enjoyed the braised beef short ribs and Parmesan crusted pork chop with a bottle of Taurasi wine. What a great evening!
