Date of visit was 14 Sept 2007. I was in New York City for a long weekend with a friend and we tried this restaurant one evening before heading to the theatre. What a pleasant surprise it was! At first we weren't sure things were going to go smoothly. We didn't have reservations and the hostess made us think that it might be a problem, even though it was very early and there was only one table seated at the time. But we were seated and the server was very personable and charming. The busboy/drink server kept our water glasses full almost 100% of the time and the plate of bread/cheese/olives that we were treated to before our meals was unbelievably tasty! Our meals were delivered to us in a reasonable amount of time and the food was quite good. I had a chicken pasta dish. It wasn't the best pasta I've ever had, BUT I did enjoy it very much and I can honestly say that I have NEVER had a pasta dish with so much chicken in it! This pasta had more meat than any other pasta dish I have ever had at any restaurant ever. So, let me be clear, - the pasta was good. The noodles, chicken and sauce were prepared perfectly. I really enjoyed it, but it didn't knock my socks off. That's all I'm saying. Anyway, my friend and I decided to pass on dessert, so we asked for the check, but before the check, the server brought us a plate of cookies and nuts and a few figs and strawberries. It was splendid! A perfect finish to a delightful meal. I don't remember the decor of the restaurant very well, but I do remember it being simple and classy. My friend had a coupon for $25 off our meal, but even without that coupon, the prices were VERY reasonable and considering the delicious bread plate before the meal and cookie plate after the meal, you will be getting your money's worth at this restaurant. I give this restaurant an excellent rating because the server was so pleasant, the bread plate with the cheese and olives was delicious, the cookie plate was such a delightful and unexpected surprise, there was SO much meat in the pasta dish and the busboy worked very hard to please us! My friend and I were very, very pleased and were tempted to eat there every night during our trip. I hope others will have the same great experience we had.
