“Food was good, service lacking”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Visited with a party of 6. Food was tasty, service was a bit lacking. Burrata appetizer was amazing. Loved the flat pasta with with bolognese sauce. Traditional lasagna were very good. Very reasonably priced.

“Good, Homemade Italian Food”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

The food here is really good - authentic homemade Italian. I had the ravioli special, that was very tasty. The portion was, however, pretty small. Our waiter was very attentive. The tables are VERY close together, so we felt like we were intruding upon our neighbor's evening, as they were ours. That would be my only complaint though!

“Excellent surprise, and open until midnight!”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

We arrived late and needed a place to eat close to our hotel that also had some vegan/vegetarian offerings. We stumbled into Sauce and were pleasantly surprised! Service was great and we enjoyed the food. Was nice to find some things we could eat on the menu, although it is not a vegetarian place, lots of meat, fish, etc... on the menu! The pickled green peppers they serve with the bread ahead of your food are amazing! I had the zucchini pasta and it was terrific, although would have liked a bigger portion. My daughter had the kale gnocchi and it was delicious too. A little chilly at our table in front of the door, but otherwise nice cozy atmosphere. Would dine there again!

“Great dinner spot”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

Great bar, small, friendly bartender, local drafts, food great. Hostess could be a bit more customer service friendly. Its not a crime to ask how long until your table is ready, and it was worth the wait.

“Our 2nd visit and a great restaurant”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

In my previous review I stated, "I shall return" and we did and were not disappointed as is the case on many 2nd attempts. We liked taste the first time and decided that we'd see how we'd like it the 2nd time. It was excellent. The polenta platter was excellent and the nice variety of Italian wines was great. this is a very, very good stop in the SOHO area.
