Expecting the typical slice of the pie, we were surprised when we each had a whole pizza to our selves! Not able to eat all of it in a single sitting, we asked for a take out box and took... More

We ate here on our last evening in New York and had a very pleasant meal. The pizzas were fine, but not otherworldly; the pasta dishes were a notch better. The best part of our experience was the service: we had a charming and competent waitress from New Zealand (Leigh) and were also well-taken care of by a gentleman from... More

This is a tiny restaurant right next to Book of Mormon (theater). The food and service were wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely go again when I'm in New York!

We got a tip from the hotel concierge about this place for our first night in NYC. We enjoyed the food and service was very friendly. We ordered salads, pastas and dessert and everyone was pleased with their meal. My angle hair pasta and tomato sauce were excellent.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
