At a business lunch, we shared the Orecchiette (very good) and the Paccheri All' Ameritriciana (which has a unique smokey tomato flavor). We started with the roasted eggplant (also very good) and the fried brussels sprouts, which was better than any roasted or fried brussels...More

If I was rating solely on the food I'd give this venue 5 stars. The Lumache and Rigatoni were great and we brought ample leftovers home. The Lambrusco and Abbazia Pinot Noir were also excellent. But the seating gets 1 star - the tables are...More

The mushroom risotto was great, so were the Brussels sprouts and the cheese and the mushroom appetizer. The asparagus bruschetta was good. The service was prompt and polite. The Genovese soup was hard for me to eat, overpowering pesto flavor. The butterscotch and chocolate gelato...More

I reserved a table for 6 with my friends - most of us were Italian - as the menu looked really inspiring with some really interesting regional dishes that are hard to find outside Italy. Unfortunately the execution was not great ... we ordered Gnocco...More

The meatballs come 3 to an order ($16!-- a bargain), with an accompaniment of spaghetti marinara. The night we dined, the meatball varieties presented were pork, veal, and lamb-- we chose to try them all. Each was distinctly seasoned, each went perfectly with the pasta....More

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
