Great food and service and the décor was very nice. Lamb chops and fresh pasta were the highlight of the meal.

Lovely authentic Italian meal in NYC on Valentine’s Day. Thank you to the chef for making my daughter garlic bread and for the never ending amount of chicken in my pasta!

Beautiful atmosphere. Food was fresh and amazing. Rigatoni was delicious. I love authentic and you get it here. Friendly staff.

We had a good lunch, the meat was good. The pasta was clearly a new recipe that doesn’t exist in Italy and it is an adjustment to American taste. Nothing remarkable but not bad.

My pasta was under- cooked and the clams were tough- difficult to chew. We always eat here when in NYC, but we will dine elsewhere upon our return.

Little Italy
While Little Italy is one of the city's smallest
neighbourhoods, its streets are packed with visitors
from around the globe, especially on summer weekends
when the streets are closed to traffic. Stroll up
Mulberry Street, the heart of Little Italy, for a
dense mix of Italian restaurants with sidewalk tables,
cafes, and old-school food shops. Don’t be surprised
when the hosts beckon you to pay them a visit. Stop in
