“Valentine dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Tried this place based on Trip Advisor feedback. We turned up a 1930 on Valentine's day with fingers crossed and were lucky enough to get a table for two immediately. Service was excellent and the daily specials for both starter and main course were first class. No complaints and would happily recommend to anyone who likes Italian food.

“Great overall !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic team / management from Albania and Turin who really made
us feel welcome and recommended the best dishes.
Had the scallops which were fantastic - followed by the steak - which was
beautiful. Overall the best in NYC on this trip.

My fish dish was amazing. Wife's pasta was quite tasty too. Would go back for sure. Price was very reasonable for the quality.

“Great Italian food, wonderful service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Four of us had a pre-show dinner on a Saturday night. The food was delicious. My partner had one of several specials, a seafood risotto that was excellent. I had the fettuccini with spinach and mushroom, equally delicious. My friend had a ravioli that was wonderful.
Our Russian waitress was very attentive and service was great. Very pleasant, relaxed atmosphere.

“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Picked this place as it was close to the theater and was the top choice on tripadvisor. Was happy with my visit. The service was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was casual yet elegant. My friends loved the sangria. The lamb ragu, recommended by our server, was tasty and plentiful. Overall a very pleasant visit and I recommended it for good Italian food near most of the theaters in NYC.
