A friend brought a group of us here because he loved their lasagna, but I have a love/hate relationship with dairy - so I was a little worried about selection. But after the server recommended the spaghetti I took a chance and am so glad I did. Sure you're thinking it's noodles, sauce and a ball of meat - how... More

Thank you, NewsCruzer, for the fantastic review. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the spaghetti and meatballs (this was a great choice). Remember to save room for dessert next time, you won't regret it. Hope to see you again soon. More

We spent a month living 2 blocks from this restaurant and enjoyed it so much we ate here at least 4 times. The buratta was a real hit with us, as was each of the various pastas and meats we tried. Great, friendly service, long opening hours, a modest priced wine list and good ambience all added to it. Well... More

I had dinner here after a performance at the nearby Joyce Theater. The place was empty when I arrived but soon filled up with tables too close to each other. In fact, the diners at my adjacent table spilled their drink and it splashed on my back. The waitstaff cleaned up my floor but did nothing else. I had to... More

Was looking for another restaurant but was closed due to Thanksgiving Day. So walk around and find this. It was an unexpected find. Was sceptical when we entered the restaurant at 1:30pm when there is no guest in the restaurant. But the experience was great. The food was really good. We had set lunches that is really value for money.... More

We stopped for a quick dinner on our way to Atlantic theatre. Looked like a nice place for a romantic dinner - dimly lit, candles, white tablecloth. Everything was just right except for the blaring loud pop music. We asked twice to turn down the volume and eventually they did but not by much. Other than that, a cordial server,... More

We stopped in to have a cold drink and obtain directions. Bar tender was extremely friendly and helpful in getting us to our destination. Will definitely make this our lunch or dinner destination during our next destination.

We had the best brunch! The egg dishes were amazing, the service was attentive, and the atmosphere was so relaxing for a Sunday morning. The mimosas and bellinis were a great addition to our meals. Highly recommend eating here.

Everything about this place I love. The food is excellent, the service excellent, and the ambiance excellent. I have been here numberous times and have never been dissapointed. Def a gem in NYC, affordable as well. My favorite dishes are the farfalle vodka and the lasagna (of course since its their name)

Thank Jen S

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
