Excellent fettuccine Alfredo and good bread and appetizers. No kids menu meant I paid $18.00 for my 5 year old's Alfredo as well.

we were in little italy during the festival and did not want to sit outside because of all of the noise.....we came upon this restaurant and after reading some reviews, decided to give it a try......we were completely surprised when we walked inside and saw a beautiful room in the back of the restaurant with a glass ceiling.....the atmosphere alone convinced us to stay.......the food was great! what a gem in the middle of little italy....there were four of us and we all ordered different things off of the menu and we all loved our meal.........

Nice location, beautiful courtyard.
Now to the food: the calamari tastes like deed fried rubber bands, the pasta exactly like chef boyardee, the grilled fish like canned tuna from the microwave.
I have no idea how this joint stays in buisness.
To all the wanna be wise guys enjoy, to all true believers in "buongusto" try to stay away as far as possible !!!!

Four of us arrived 5 minutes early for our reserved table to find pandemonium ensuing. We were informed that our wait would be at least half an hour. When we enquired about an empty table for four near the entrance we were informed that it was reserved for someone else (who hadn't arrived yet)
Eventually we were given a table outside but had to wait an extended period before we were served. But when the rain started about an hour later (and long before our food arrived) they were able to move us inside
On the other hand the food was good and we enjoyed ourselves. In the restaurant's defense, that night was during the San Gennaro festival and it was very busy. But they shouldn't have over booked.

All family was exhausted and we had no time to check on tripadvisor where to eat so we found this place in little italy. We had to wait forever to hace meals, we never got prices of beverages so they charged us whatever they wanted + at the end when we finally got the bill, they included 20% gratuity like they do for tourist even if we live in New York. They claimed it was a computer problem but they were rude, and service did not deserve 20% gratuity at all. Food was OKm even if they did not explain anything to us, no specials no nothing. Just don t go !!
