Food was excellent and plentiful in this charming, family owned restaurant..will definitely return
Dinner was fantastic and the service even better. We came because of all of the positive reviews of this place, and boy were they spot on. Each dish was more delicious than the last and the place has a beautiful rustic vibe. We will most definitely be returning!
They were taking the plates out from under us and it wasn't that the place was crowded. My husband wasn't quite finished with his wine and whoosh... gone! The music was rock and roll ... and it was LOUD (not "energetic") ... and strange for an Italian place. Some of the food was good and some pretty poor. Very overpriced for the quality. We won't be returning.
Hi REBS, I'm very sorry that this was your experience at our restaurant. My husband and I were out of town this weekend and perhaps our normal operations were not followed. We do not play rock n roll and we never play our music loud. It is our policy to never rush diners, even if we are behind. I would like to apologize that some of the food was poor. I sincerely hope you will give us another shot as I can assure you this will not be your experience again. Thanks Saje
Place is amazing!
Came to celebrate a friend’s birthday and we had the best time. Service was excellent, food was delicious and perfectly portioned. Can’t wait to come back!
Always a great meal and superb service. It remains a staple on our “go to” list
One of my favorite restaurants in New York. The food is always amazing and the service constantly matches.
Delicious food and friendly service in a lovely and buzzing ambiance- what more can you ask for! Will definitely be back.
Great food. Great service. A local favorite of mine.
I accidentally made the reservation for the following week but the guys were phenomenal in setting up a table on a busy night. Beet salad was fantastic and each of us were thrilled with our entrees ( the chicken was particularly perfect) - lovely wine selection and we were sorry we had no room left for dessert.
Always an amazing experience with phenomenal food!
Authentic and tasty food along with knowledgeable and friendly staff.
It was for a birthdate. Group of 6, all used to fine dining. Food was great, service was prompt, but the 9pm reservation was a bit late and we were one of two tables remaining
The food was delicious, the service on point and the ambiance was perfect for our date.
Had a friend get together for dinner here on a Sunday night. Great food and timely service. Charming ambiance and coziness. Would come back and recommend to friends.
Fabulous restaurant, service and food! We will definitely return to this friendly establishment.
This restaurant does not get the recognition it deserves. All of our dishes were very good. The Beggars Purse pasta, the chicken, the eggplant rollatini were all quite good.
Everything was superb. Will be coming back again soon with family and friends.
Food was amazing, staff was friendly. It was our anniversary, and they made it an absolutely special night for us. Thank you!
dont eat lunch -save yourself for dinner -amazing flavours / great friendly service - well worth the trip
This place was PERFECT for a friend’s get-together/business meal. The food was great, sparkling wine was good, the people were SO NICE, and the decor was uniquely rustic and contemporary. Definitely would recommend.
A cosy place with very nice service. Everything was very good. We had the Octopus and Potato / Ahi Tuna Stack / Taproot Symphony / Tasty Crustacean / Wide Road for the Wild Swine / Little Ears of Apulia and Broccoli Rabe on the side. All were so good! For dessert, get the Nutella Crepes. Sorry, lot of carb!
Great date night spot
Delicious food and great service. Looking forward to coming back.
Great food and great service!
Excellent food and quality of food. Service was on point. As expected for the area, restaurant was very loud
Excellent meal all around. From delicious food, to attentive service, to a great playlist humming along in the background - I highly recommend! Can't wait to return.
Went here for dinner with my parents and my boyfriend. My cocktail tasted like water, our food was bland and the service was very slow. Bummer- really wanted to love this place.
What a hidden gem! Don't even question it, just book a reservation here, you won't regret it! Outstanding food, friendly service, beautiful dining room, and yummy cocktails.
Fanstastic service and amazing food. It’s got it all.
Go! The best Italian in the city? Go! Other places have great pasta and so so fish. Go! Not so here. I said, go!
I had never been here before but as soon as I entered I was greeted by such friendly people. The service was great. Prompt with any of my requests and the food was absolutely delicious. I will be going back soon!
We rolled out of the restaurant, and couldn’t stop talking about when we could come back. Food was delicious, service great and we told everyone that we found a gem .
Lovely spot in the East Village with warm prompt service and very good food. I would not say excellent, but a very good value. Will def. return.
Everything was absolutely superb! The truffle pasta was some of the best I’ve ever had. Thank you!
Amazing atmosphere, food and service! One of the best restaurants in the city!
Great experience, highly recommend. Food is outstanding and such friendly service!
Great service, outstanding food, home made pasta and the specialties were delicious. It's a jewel well hidden, and it definitely worth every penny. I'll recommend everybody to stop there when they go to NYC for a great dinner, romantic or with family.
Food was good, venue was cute - wait staff was rushing each table to get another seating in. We watched them do it to each party; made the experience unpleasant. Other than that, it is a great place for dinner (even better if you are in a rush!).
Hi Nick, I'm glad you enjoyed the food and ambiance and I am sincerely sorry that you felt that others were rushed. When we take reservations we allot the standard amount of time to each table that Opentable predicts that party will need. Majority of the time this works out perfectly and we are able to sit reservations on time. And then sometimes several tables sit much longer than expected and we have to do our best to get people up so we can honor all reservations. Hope to see you again!
My usual caveats stand: I am a regular high-end restaurant goer; I dine in very fine places. How does this restaurant compare? Very well indeed. I was super-delighted with the food. Very well prepared, presented with care, excellent ingredients, quite some creativity beyond the traditional Italian at its price range. That being said, no it is no Michelin star restaurant, but hey, you will be much more satisfied here if you are not in the 0.1%. Wine list could improve. We had 3 different glasses of wine and they were nothing to write home about. On the other hand, the Cynar Negroni was a revelation (I am a Negroni fan.) So, go with the Negronis!
Service was attentive and warm. Nothing to fault this restaurant. Most restaurants would be proud to have such good service.
The ambiance: I was a bit underwhelmed when we first entered, especially because the photographs were more impressive. There is no trickery, but it doesn't look as good when you enter. However, once you settle in, it is really fine. Tables are close together, but that's expected at this price range. It does not hold too many tables, so the noise level is very reasonable and I don't remember any music, which is a blessing.
Prices: very, very reasonable, which makes this restaurant a bargain for the quality and the experience offered!
