Went for dinner tonight and had a lovely meal. Portions are large but we managed to finish most of our food! Nice feel to restaurant, modern but not unapproachable.

We went to this restaurant twice during our last visit. It was a very quick WALK from our hotel on 5th Ave, which was nice because the traffic in NY is crazy these days. It's upscale, but not stuffy. Nice staff. Hip place. Cool music....More

Our family dropped in for a lunch after a day in the park. The service was efficient, and the food was very good. We had pizza that was tasty, and a variety of salads (Avocado San Pietro had generous portion of shrimp) and were quite...More
