Fun piano bar. Serves food very late. Let us split a pasta dish and divided it in the kitchen. Reasonably priced.

Good food, OK service, underhand billing. 18% gratuity automatically added to bill total for two people, despite menu advising that this only applied to groups of 5 or more. When queried told this was only a suggestion. I have another suggestion - avoid this place.

We wanted an intimate family Italian style place and was not disappointed. Great live piano music to enjoy. Food was average, good but presentation was lacking. Also, they do not refill soda drinks but they do not tell you that, so when the bill came...surprise!...More

For me, a neighborhood spot. Tourists always have a good time at the piano bar. A wide menu including all the traditional Italian dishes you love. 2nd Ave is lined with other bars and restaurants as well between 49th and 54th streets.

When after waiting over 10 minutes for a waiter to take our drink order, we should have listened to our waiter when he said there will be long delays because the kitchen is understaffed. When I say listen, I meant that we should have walked...More
