We called our experience in NYC "the law of diminishing returns" bc the more we paid for the meal, the less food we seemed to get. Not so here which could be good or bad..... In real life, meaning at home, I would never dream...More

Basically a pizza and pasta place. Both were great. Incredible find on the East Side. The spicy meatball pizza is a must.

Went there while in NYC and came across this amazing restaurant! It is great for families, you have amazing pizza, pasta and fish. What I love is that the food tastes great, and the prices are amazing for a NYC restaurant. Service was excellent too....More

this restaurant is wonderful for taste, service and ambience. The salad was wonderful and the pizza was DELICIOUS; there are a lot of stairs though and I didn't see an elevator. If you need one, call first.

Ugggh awful, cold pizza took forever while bartender/ server chatted about her personal life. Across from our hotel we opted to pick up a pizza at AperiTivo to take back to our room. The hostess said takeout orders were taken by the bartender. 45 minutes...More

This place has reliably good food (not excellent) and it has become my go-to place for a quick(ish) dinner when I am in New York

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is
a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of
