Six of us all together and everyone was very happy with the food. Many, many specials. I believe 45 so you must pay attention. This pasta was a... More

Sunday evening dinner at 5:30 and the place was already full. Old fashioned, outer borough type décor but the food....excellent!

We had tomato salad with burrata that was delicious and perfectly... More

The food here is great, as is the service and the atmosphere. I love that the spoken menu is as long, if not longer, than the printed one! I was so impressed with our food. The ingredients were fresh, the dishes were seasoned perfectly and the serving size was

Having heard great reviews my expectations were high and I was not disappointed. The service was spot on - from the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out you are treated with the utmost courtesy. The staff is well trained - from the wine list, to the menu, and plethora of specials, they are fully prepared to... More

This is fine dining, not for people on a budget. The food is fantastic and the portions are big. The ambiance is beautiful. I wish I could afford to go here more often, but it's a great special occasion treat!
