SO sad to hear they are closing. During its brief and successful tenure this has been our absolute favorite among all the excellent restaurants in the city. Pastas beyond description and the Suckling Pig melts in your mouth.

Not impressive, not mind blowing. Salty, over seasoned. Over salted octopus, too strong. The waiter was pushy, he was talking and talking. It was too much. It doesn't make sense to spend so much time, money and energy if you're gonna eat that. The painting...More
