I've been here twice, and this place has become a favorite of ours in the East Village. The restaurant is cozy but not too tight. Service is very good.
The food is excellent. The next sentence may either be praise or criticism depending upon your tastes (I think it's praise!): The entrees explode with taste. I mean, this place will really get your taste buds going. The signature dish, Tonnarelli Cacio e Pepe, is served out of round of cheese and is almost overwhelmingly peppery (but I love it.) The Ricotta Ravioli with Meatballs in a Sunday Sauce is also very tasty. My wife didn't love the Homemade Fettuccine with Pumpkin Puree, which she found too sweet, but again, the dish was full of flavor (just not one that agreed with my wife).
If you love big, bold flavors, Cacio e Pepe may be for you. My wife and I love exploring the menu, and it's a nice place for a date night or to bring out of town guests. Note: It serves only wine.
