I know it can be tough to rate and review and restaurant on New Years Eve, however, this fine establishment hit the mark. We made a reservation for 7:00 for 9 people. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly hostess who promptly seated us. It must be noted, there are no menus this night. We were firsted served extremely fresh and warm bread with an awesome extra virgin olive dip seasoned perfectly. This was followed up by at least 2 brick oven pizzas perfectly cooked and seasoned. That is just the beginning. Now comes 7 large appetizer platter, not all at once, but at a perfect pace. They included a cold seafood salad, platter of proscuitto, platter of slice pork, fried calamari (excellent), grilled jumbo shrimp, eggplant parm, baked clams, mussels, steamed clams, and 2 platters of lobster cooked in the brick oven. Great and almost overwhelming. Next were 2 platters of homemade fresh pasta with a great light sauce. And of course 2 platters of perfectly cooked lamb chops and grilled skirt steak. All food served is family style in large platters. Wait staff was awesome helping us dish out our portions in our plates. Then dessert, 2 large platters with assorted desserts, cheesecake, tiramisu, crepes with nutella, apple pie, napoleon, etc., coffee, tea, espresso, capuccino. And included in our price ($65 per person) was unlimited wine, beer, sangria, soda. This is a must return. It is a festive place with great food. Be prepared to meet new people, they will be close at your table. Make some new friends. Cant wait to go back. Well worth the price. Great food, Great atmosphere, great staff.

We were a party of 4. Went here for the first time on a Sunday around 1:00pm. We got the family style diner. It is $55.00 per person and well worth every penny.. The bread and dipping oil was great. Then they started with mozzarella with tomatoes and roasted peppers, seafood salad, spicy calamari, baked clams, salad, baby grilled octopus, pizza, seafood plate which consisted of a lobster, mussels, baby clams, grilled jumbo shrimp, tortellini which they call money bags filled wily ricotta and served with a vodka sauce and mushrooms, steak and lamb chops... For dessert they came out with a plate of various treats such as; tartufo, tiramisu, fried triangles filled with chocolate and an almond cake that was absolutely terrific.. Whew.... And all of the wine, beer or sangria you can drink.. Also had cappuccino and espresso.. Believe me for the price you get a lot of food and it is all quality... We will definitely be back.. And a big shout out to our waiter, Oscar.. Very friendly, professional and attentive... Check out my pics... Eduardo...

This was one horrible place. On the surface it looks clean, but check out the bathrooms. You can always tell by the bathrooms. And the big vat of dipping oil left out in the open right along the path to said bathrooms. Gross out.

Food did not make up for it. Artichoke dish--at $12.50--was JARRED artichokes baked with crumbs. Waiter did not divulge artichokes were not fresh. Clam sauce was fishy. Pasta was not al dente. House wine was mediocre. My son had meatballs. Big, gray and bland. Even the bread was not great--and they bake it in house.

Restaurant is very, very loud, and full of groups--tourists, suburbanites, college students--all there for birthdays and what seems to me to be quantity of food. Because the quality was terrible.

I can think of at least 10 Italian restaurants in the immediate area in this vein that are far better.

Firstly we must give our special thanks to Felippo who made us feel so welcomed on our recent 3 visit's to the restaurant.

We recently visted New York for a special birthday celebration and were lucky enough to be staying with a relative in Williamsburgh within easy walking distance of the restaurant. There is a wonderful family party atmosphere and it would seem that most tables were celebrating birthdays. What we found to be particulary lovely and unique was that the whole restaurant took part in twirling their table napkins around thier heads and clapping whilst the staff played a cheerful birthday tune. Don't worry you would have had sufficient red wine which is excellent value at 28 dollars for a 1 1/2 litre bottle to quell any embarrasment.

It's an excellent place to visit any time of the week and certainly would recommend it.

Went there this past Saturday evening. We had 7:30 dinner reservatio​ns. We got there at 7:15 pm. We were told it would be a 30 minute wait. We waited one hour and twenty minutes beyond the reservatio​n time. We were so tired and hungry that we just stayed. I do not mind waiting but at least 3 tables of equal size parties who came after us were seated before us. They knew a manager, staff person etc and skipped the line. Not a way to run a business. Why take reservatio​ns on weekends. Make it first come first served. Food was good. Atmosphere was nice. But will never ever ever go back there on a weekend. Good food and poor management of seating customers. They do give you wine while you are waiting. We would not have minded the wait and not been upset if we did not see late comers and friends seated before us. After making a bit of a scene there we were almost immediatel​y seated. They do try but all customers are not treated the same. This was my 5 th visit and will be a while before
