my daughter enjoyed a wonderful dinner here before our Broadway show, which was an easy walk from the restaurant. The complimentary bruschetta was crisp on the outside, soft on the inside and flavorful. The special sea scallop appetizer was delicious and perfectly seared. My daughter's spaghetti and meatballs was the best she'd ever tasted...homemade pasta makes a big difference, and my seafood risotto was deliciously creamy with tender clams and mussels. The crepes with chocolate sauce and salty caramel gelato were the perfect ending for a delicious meal. Service was friendly & helpful with a good wine recommendation, which was reasonably priced. We would return

Grilled calamari with arugala was amazing! Everything was beautifully done. Waiter helped us choose a good wine in our price range. Will definitely go back.

Service is outstanding first of all. Our waitress was knowledgable and attentive. Good variety on menu. Filet mignon with
spinach snd caramelized onions was melt in your mouth delicious. Homemade fetuccini and gnocchi better than anything we've ever had. Reasonably priced for New York. Highly recommend,

The Place and its dining facilities is a little gem in the super busy streets just south of Central Park. Our entrées were great and carried promise of a solid dining experience. The main dish however was not bad, but not quite lift off the ground either. This might be because we got in to this excited and prolonged discussion with a wonderful american couple at the table next to us (we're visitors from Scandinavia), I could sense the slight frustration from the serving staff because of our dragging out on the entrée... I must say in our defense, though, that we're not on an eating contest. Cooking and serving staff must be able to adjust to the eating pace at each table.

Excellent food, prompt, attentive service and reasonable prices for NYC. Reservations accepted and honored. Due to its small size, the table arrangement is a little cramped but acceptable considering the quality of food. My wife asked for special Angle Hair pasta as a substitute on her order and was accomodated without a problem.
