Two words: spaghetti limone. A regular go-to for my friends and I. Great casual, stress free atmosphere with reliable key menu items which never disappoint. It’s both my boozy brunch spot as well as my Sunday night comfort food spot. Definitely go.

Good vibe and busy, but find the food and service average. Went for the board of mixed ham, cheese for appetizer. Not good! A few chunks of parmesan, raw brokkoli, tomatos etc. Pizza was ok.

It’sa fantastic. You must have the garlic bread and the pear and gorgonzola salad. Any pizza choice is good.

We like going here for the italian fare but the restaurant set up is just too cramped in the main back dining area. Tables and chairs way too close to each other. Service is slow. Food is always consistent but would be more enjoyable if...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
