Great place. Ambiance is perfect: not noisy, nice candlelit tables, just right for a date. Service is friendly and not overwhelming. And food offerings are ideal and all tasty. We had grilled octopus and polenta and zucchini appetizers. Mushroom pasta. Wine selections also well thought out. Highly recommend this restaurant. Glen

Excellent carpaccio of octopus. Everything was delicious. Service thoughtful. Enjoyed sitting under the “wisteria” arbor. Not just a table on the sidewalk.

Crazy expensive appetizers and drinks. Never paid that much anywhere. I know that prices are rising but this was outrageous. Tried to order moderate priced dinners ( chicken balsamic) and my husband and I were quite disappointed. This was not like our previous meals there…. Very disappointing especially since we brought friends for the 1st time

This place was the most busy to most mediocre ratio restaurant I’ve ever been to.
I couldn’t believe it.
You’d think the place had stellar food the way people were clamoring to get in. All snooty UWS’ers. Thought they had better taste.
From app to entree to dessert. All were mediocre at best.
Desserts were actually atrocious. Tasted like they were sitting in a fridge for a month…pre-sliced.
Service was excellent, however.

Food excellent though pricey. Same for wine by the glass.
Though there is seemingly enough staff, the service felt a bit slow and quite impersonal.
First time patrons and iffy about returning.

Food and service were great, though the prices were unusually high for some pasta. It was nice to try but not sure I would return since there are other very good Italian restaurants in the neighborhood that are great and aren’t as expensive. But it was a nice evening.

The only problem was the outdoor part was not very well ventilated or open. It might have been safer eating inside. But swordfish with lentils was delicious! They also should ask before they remove the breadplate.

The food is excellent. The service is attentive, but it was slow; however, they were also very apologetic and gave us a nice dessert to make up for the delay. We will definitely go back and recommended it for anybody in the neighborhood.

Amateur level Italian food at haute cuisine prices. Thrown together tiny artichoke salad, overcooked & over sauced squid ink pasta, and overcooked branzino made for a particularly unpleasant experience when combined with high prices and a 3% recovery surcharge.

Lovely neighborhood spot. The menu was expansive with lots of great options. We were four and we all enjoyed every course. Service was attentive but not intrusive. The ambiance for an outdoor space was very comfortable. It was my BD so I had a sweet HBD rendition by the staff. We would absolutely return and recommend 😊

Unfortunately there was a large table of very happy young ladies right next to us in the outdoors structure and thanks to the very helpful maîtresse d hotel, we were able to move jjust before our first course. So the evening was saved and our conversation pleasant.

The food is terrible, overcooked, under seasoned, large portions being given to compensate for the awful quality. And the prices are stratospheric. In terms of value for money, a big zero.
