This is a great place! Second visit and the food was delicious! The papardelle with sausage was wonderful. My husband had the prime rib with potatoes and loved it. Don't forget to finish off with some double chocolate gelato - awesome!

Wonderful hole in the wall Italian restaurant. Everything was fresh from the bread and oil to the main course. Dessert was fabulous and home made. Wonderful place to come before a theater engagement and out of the way of the touristy joints. Very compact so not ideal for more then 6 at a table.

This place is AMAZING. Every single thing I ate was fantastic. The octopus appetizer in particular was life changing: amazing tender, complex, and delicious. Our table as a whole got: bruschetta, octopus, beet salad, soup of the day, she’s ravioli, veal ravioli, salmon, panna cotta, tiramisu, and ricotta cheesecake. Everything was amazing and we will definitely be back!

Amazing!! You know when you’re traveling and you run into locals raving about the restaurant that you’ve made an awesome choice! We tried a bunch of dishes and all were phenomenal but the veal ravioli (even our children loved it) was by far the best. Highly recommend!!

The host worked overtime on the phone with me to make sure that we had a reservation time that worked for us, especially after friends asked to join us. Thank you again. We had a delightful time with good pastas and nice service in a relaxed atmosphere.

Booked on recomendation from Tripadvisor. Should be a very nice Italian restaurant. It was ok, great food and great service. But must be seen as a simple Italian restaurant, have dined on better. But the price was ok and we had a nice evening.

The food was decent and better priced than most Italian restaurants in the neighborhood. The part that I enjoyed the least was the lack of space between tables -- table space between parties was very limited and just shy of what one might consider community dining.

We were very pleased with this restaurant. Cozy, neighborhood place that is unpretentious and inviting. Excellent Sicilian food well prepared and delicious. It is the kind of place you could eat at everyday if you live in the neighborhood. Feels like Italy.

First time at this restaurant. We chose it based on proximity to a theater we were going to and TripAdvisor reviews.
Excellent food. The artichoke cake, papardelle with ragu, chicken Milanese were all really good. As well as the Prosecco and other wines.

Reservations a must. Even at 5:30pm there were several tables occupied and the place was full by 6.

We were seeing an Off-B'way show on the next block and checked online for a restaurant nearby. We LOVED our choice! (braciola) The food was AWESOME, delicious beyond words, and moderately priced. The service was excellent and the staff beyond pleasant and accommodating. We plan to come again WITHOUT a show to get to so we'll have time for appetizers, dessert, and coffee. We will be bringing friends. Thank you for a lovely evening!
