Service is great. Fun concept- select from several options of meatballs, sauce and then if you want them over pasta, veggies or “naked”. Salad options were great too. Simple food with tons of flavor in a cool space.

The meatballs are delicious! Very casual. Can be crowded, but definitely worth the wait. Loved it! Would definitely go back

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
