A place I would expect to be clinging to the edge of little Italy instead of Thompson st. A full bar without a knowledgeable bartender. Relaxed Italian service without full robust Italian flavors. An okay meal. Not bad. Not great. Nothing special or memorable.

Food has been traditionally good and reasonably priced. Waiters not the happiest but who cares if the food is good. Small but nice ambiance. I think you will enjoy its traditional Italian cuisine.

Stopped by for dinner with my son. The place was empty as 6PM, which I found odd; but we headed in for an Italian meal. The bread brought to the table was stale; the entrees were extremely salty, and flavorless. It seems like this place just gave up on the dining experience.

...at moderate prices. My veal with mushrooms was not so exiting but OK. Quite good tiramisu. Wine by the glass in generous quantity. Correct service by two Italian (I presume) older men.
