We walked in here after an event at the Morgan Library and Museum and we were glad we did! It is a New York Italian classic. Everything felt exactly like a New York Italian place should be. Great story-upon entering we were welcomed by a host/maitre D who was immediately told by a 'guy' sitting at the little table at the end of the bar wearing a suit with the napkin tucked in to his neck eating a plate of pasta exactly what table we should be taken to. I immediately smiled-exactly as I imagined. I half expected to see the cast of a Scorsese film sitting at a table.
The dining room was old school in every way. The classic piano player with all the great Frank and Dean tunes. The proper attired wait staff. The service was great. Friendly. Never rushed, never waiting for anything. The food was excellent-there were 4 of us and we all enjoyed our different meals. The wine was nice. Place was classy without being over the top or stuffy. The prices are not cheap, but not outrageous-especially for a nice place in Manhattan. 4 meals and wine=$200. I would visit here again! Most memorable dining experience of my 6 days in NYC.
