This restaurant was recommended to me over the phone by some unknown lady at Prune when I asked for a rec. on the UWS. Perhaps its main attraction to us was its location, just a few blocks from our hotel (NYLO). We were immediately impressed by the interior and the architectural components. Spacious but yet maintaining an atmosphere of intimacy. Serviced was excellent, provided by an attractive young lady from Venice who had a rather thick but fascinating Italian accent. It lended some authenticity to the place. I was happy with the menu as well in that it provided options and variety of choices. They have an interesting thing: a 33 dollar per bottle wine list. Since my wife doesn't drink I had a very good glass of sangiovese (Montecucco?) at a decent price for NYC.
My only issue with the place is that for our taste the food needed to be tweaked a bit in its seasoning. Could be that just a pinch more salt may have made the difference. (I had the sausage and pork belly with lentils, wife had the lamb shank).
I can easily recommend this place for a good, solid dinner.
