This was a very pleasant evening. The service was attentive, the decor pleasing. Of course, the meal is the major part of a review, I had fried artichohes which gave a crispy, smokey flavor- delicious. My wife had apeppery pasta thawas also nice. Fr secondi, we had the slalt baked sea bass which was absolutely perfect. The bar scene is... More

Comfortable and top food. Nice crowd, relaxed but chic. Quiet street. Decor is very comfortable without being stuffy.

Not sure why this place is so busy for breakfast unless it's just convenient for meetings. My husband couldn't find anything that he wanted on the menu, we tried but unfortunately it wasn't for our taste, if you like cheese it seemed each breakfast dish included some type of cheese, including the sausage!! Only fancy teas available....

So this restaurant came really highly recommended, I couldn't fault the food, the service was attentive so I have no major flaws I can highlight. However I didn't feel that this was a restaurant I would say is a must go place in NY. The restaurant was crowded, although the food was good it was just that. I feel the... More

This is the type of place you'd go for a "fancy" breakfast. You know, one of those spots where you can expect to find sharp pecorino cheese in your scrambled eggs and olive oil in your muffin? Ya, that type of place. I had a soy cappuccino and the Cacio e Pepe, a simple dish of soft scrambled eggs, black... More

We only stayed in New York 3 days so only tried a handful of places, but hands-down this was the best. They did a very good lunch deal, which meant it was reasonably priced given the quality. The pasta was delicious and the service / ambience were both good. Would happily recommend.

If you are looking for Italian food, but not your standard Italian fare, this is the place for you. Unique southern Italian/Sicilian cuisine; lots of pork, grilled octopus, great and unusual pasta choices. Wait staff was fantastic, sommelier gave some spot on recommendations, I was there for a business meeting (free dinner!!!) but I would gladly pay for my next... More

After almost four years in the neighborhood I finally had occasion to dine at this elegant restaurant. While it always appeared crowded and somewhat pretentious from the outside it turned out to be warm, friendly and very accommodating. The service was good and the food excellent. Servers were attentive but not overbearing, and the real treat was the value. The... More

Located in the Gramercy Park Hotel, this restaurant rates my highest rating. May be difficult to get a table, so call well enough ahead. Food was excellent and visually appealing. The restaurant had a problem with their pasta machine (therefore it must be made fresh to order), so we we comped a large cheese and meat platter. The pasta arrived... More
