We were impressed by the food and service. Excellent Italian cuisine served hot and fresh from salads to pasta course and main course whether seafood or beef. For New York, the price was more that reasonable. Just across from the Westin Hotel Grand Central where...More

Relaxed comfortable restaurant serving well cooked Italian food. Decent prices by NY standards for good ingredients and well cooked authentic food. Varied menu and particularly the fine homemade pasta.

Food is average, service is decent, slightly overpriced for what it is, good location though especially for commuters. A little loud and tables are too close for business dinner. Probably would not go back, also, the receptionist is cold and unfriendly, she didn't really want...More

I didn't notice a children's menu. They seem very nice and I noticed one couple had a baby with them. You could always share a pizza or other food.
