“Excellent Italian food, elegant setting - close to Waldorf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Went here for a business dinner, and luckily the concierge at the hotel already pointed out that the place can easily be missed, since it's in the basement.
Yes, the place is elegant, but not too elegant and certainly a great setting for business dinner.
Food, especially seafood is excellent, the wine list also has some very special selections - not cheap, but appropriate for the quality.
Service is exceptional, no further comments needed.

“Upscale Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2014

Very elegant setting. The food is very good - but there are a lot of very good Italian restuarants in NY. What differentiates this restaurant is the elegant ambience. The staff is very attentive - although some of the staff go a bit overboard which can have a bit of a falsetto ring. Nice wine selection although definitely pricey. I generally come here a couple times per year when dining with someone who would appreciate the elegant setting. Also, there is a nice private room for a medium to large size group - very nice for a business dinner. Service for large groups is exceptional - very professional and appropriately staffed.

“Charming!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2014

A beautiful setting, exquisite service and fantastic food made this a business lunch to remember! The outside is modest, the interior elegant and old-world. The very addictive bread (served with subtle, flavored spreads) paired well with a variety of fresh, beautifully presented antipasti. My spinach salad was simply perfect, while others termed the salmon and various pastas delicate, nicely sauced and well-presented. Highly recommend, and will definitely return!

“Great meal with a price point to match”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

Definitely on the higher end BUT the food and wine matches perfectly to the expectation. The ambience is distinclty upper scale and the service keeps you there. Food was fresh and well balanced - not overly made. Good quality Italian food that was well enjoyed.

“Old world charm and attention to detail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

We ate here twice during our week in Manhattan. The food was over the top delicious. Each course was worthy of being slowly savored. The Burrata salad with tomatoes,roasted red pepper, with 3 sauces (the reduced balsamic was our favorite) was phenomenal. The gnocchi were delicate but full of flavor. I took a risk on the ground sirloin and pasta (I typically stick with vegetarian food) and was delighted with the balance of meat, sauce and pasta. The ricotta cheesecake is well worth the calories. Coffee is served with homemade miniature butter cookies and biscotti. Dinner for 2, with wine, salad, pasta and dessert was around $125, a bargain considering the quality of the food, charming service and lovely location.
