This is a very busy and compact restaurant. We had a perfectly pleasant meal but it was not exceptional, especially given the wide variety of Itallian restaurants in NYC. A well executed small menu. Service was good.

Fresh pasta is the specialty. Bone marrow as an appetizer? First time I've ever had that one! Good wine selection and excellent service. The place is tiny and the tables are close together but it is a very good date spot

I really enjoyed the food and the service. Tables are tight but the food is delicious. The chicken was so tasty and different, portion was enough for 2 people. Mussels were also great. The service was very helpful and friendly, Prices were fair.

I was here with my wife, nephew and his girlfriend. The reservation was for 6:00 and if any reader isn't familiar, that is pretty early in New York. No surprise, when I got there just before 6:00 the place was nearly empty. My nephew texted...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
