“Fantastic: food, service and setting”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

Place felt really intimate, we went with family but would be great place for couples. Welcome and service professional and personal at the same time. Best to last was the food which was excellent. Lovely wine to cap off lovely evening.

“Awesome +”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

First of all the food is so awesomely incredible ! Meatballs were so big and tasty! Food prices are very good and Wine prices are not that bad (42$/bottle minimum but is good)
The total price is in the end really reasonable and is worth every penny. The service was really great and Oskar was a real gentleman . We got emilio ballato to take pictures with us and he was friendly!
We were a group of eleven and we reserved a week earlier ! We were in the back section which is not shown on the photos and the deco Was very nice !
A great experience go and eat some pastas! We'll go back again when we pass by Manhattan that's for sure !!
Thanks for the hospitality ballatos!

“A must”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

A great hide away from the busy streets of NYC. Fantastic authentic Italian eatery, service is superb & food is amazing. A must visit if you are in New York. Staff make you feel right at home, recommended for couples or catching up with friends or family. I will definitely return if I am in NYC again.
