“A Delightful Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2014

Our waiter was fantastic. He was knowledgeable about the menu and not afraid to make recommendations. The service was perfection. I had pasta with clam sauce, a dish I order with hesitancy because it is often not what I expect. This dish was absolutely delicious. The wine was great and didn't break the bank. It is a wonderful friendly restaurant with excellent food and service. If I lived closer i'd be there every night.

“Great Italian Choice in Upper East Side”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

This was my first visit but my friend and his wife dine here often and I can see why. We had a delightful meal last night. The ambiance is relaxed and has the feel of a comfortable neighborhood place but also the elegance of fine dining. The service was impeccable & friendly. The food memorable. We split a portobello mushroom stuffed with lump crab meat. I ordered the pan seared sole and my friend had a seafood pasta. My only wish is that there was a little more creativity in the menu choices - a few creative options in addition to the standards. We were not up for a bottle of wine but were pleased that there was a very good selection of wine by the glass. For a fine Italian restaurant - or any one for that matter - in this neighborhood the price was most reasonable. I will definitely be back!

“Spent the day in the city the day after Christmas and just wandered in.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Do yourself a favor and don't pay attention to the positive posts and ignore the negative. Cannot imagine why anyone wouldn't enjoy themselves here. This place was truly wonderful.

You will feel completely welcomed by the people greeting you at the door. The other diners were just a happy pleasant group of people. We just wanted drinks and appetizers and sat near the front windows which was so much fun because you can do a lot of people watching....it was the holidays so everyone was in good spirits. The music, the lighting, the server, the food... everything was perfect. One of the best spur of the moment dining experiences.

Our drinks were a bit stiff...lol so one of us approached the bartender and she happily remedied it...no biggie.

Will definitely go back and highly recommend this restaurant.
