Met up with friends for an impromptu dinner here and was impressed with the owner's approachability and friendliness. Great wine recommendation paired with what very well may be the best lamb shank I've had. It was cooked to perfection. Appetizers were tasty and creative, and the desserts were spot on but lacked some of the sophistication I might have expected.... More

Great homemade pasta. Great service. The food tastes like your sitting in a restaurant in Italy. If you have to wait for a table, it's worth it. There's not many great Italian restaurants in NYC, but this is one of them!! It's so worth it. P.s. get the special dessert!!

We enjoyed a fantastic Sunday dinner at this cozy restaurant, with warm and friendly (but unobtrusive) service from the owner. We didn't have a reservation, but there was no trouble getting a great table. Meals were delicious. The pasta were cooked perfectly, and the steak was melt-in-your-mouth tender. Wine selection was fantastic, too, with the owner knowing his cellar inside... More

After arriving late at the Ludlow hotel, we crossed the street and visited this place. The staff was extremely helpful and nice. We got our pasta vongole and a glass of red wine. It would be a five star if it wasn't for the volume, it was almost impossible to talk to each other.

We randomly went into this restaurant because it was next door to our hotel and I am so glad we did! The food was great and the people who work there instantly became our new friends. The owner was great and sat with us and had drinks and shared stories and the bartender really knows how to make people feel... More

My sisters and cousins came here after a sobering tour of the 9/11 memorial museum. Our guide suggested it. We sat in the lovely outdoor dining area. It was a lovely day. We were served lovely wines and began with mussels, zucchini salad & eggplant with buffalo mozzarella. Each one was delicious. We next had salmon risotto and home made... More

We had one of the most satisfying amazing meals ...ever!!! We are foodies and have been to many Michelin starred restaurants in the US and Europe. If you are looking for simple, clean, scrumptious, amazing and delicious Italian food in NYC, this is the place! The service is second to none. The owner, Maritio, and Samia, are best hosts ever!...

Great evening out with family and just passing by when approached by host to enter and try their delicious food. Well we did and we were not disappointed. Pasta carbonara was creamy and tasty, the eggplant baked with smoked mozzarella melted in my mouth and finally the mini meatballs were juicy and flavorful. Will return. And will invite others!

The menu looked good so we dropped in about 5pm for a a light early evening meal with the family. The staff were very friendly, nice open plan kitchen so you can see whats going on. Well stocked bar and cocktail list and the food was excellent. This was our last day and wish we have found it earlier

For anyone who spent Sunday dinner eating in your Nonna or Nonni's kitchens and for everyone who didn't, this is Italian food made with love. The smells conjure memory and the taste is as close to be being back in the kitchen as I will be again. The porchetta ragu transcends, the ravioli is always handmade and no matter what... More

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
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 shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
