Dinner here was a wonderful start to our weekend getaway to New York. The menu choices and the specials made deciding difficult, but sharing easy. The mussels were our least favorite, not bad, just we've had better elsewhere, but the pasta and the steak entrees...More

I dream of that Ragu...it was amazing! We had the polenta with ink squid appetizer. Homemade pastas....The ambiance is so pretty, perfect for a date night. It’s a small place, so might have some wait time.

Very nice brunch with 8 members of family. The food always is very good here. The portions are a bit smallish for a big appetite person like myself. Good efficient service. We will come back.

Don’t go in expecting a red sauce menu, this is Northern Italian food at its best. The menu is rather small, but starter and entree specials are always featured. The mussels in white wine sauce were spectacular! We shared a pasta and entree of quail,...More
