This small Italian got everything right. Very intimate atmosphere. Service was excellent. Our waiter was informative and had a terrific sense of humor. Menu is small, but everything was prepared perfectly.

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.

What a great place! We had dinner the night before at a more "business" restaurant (everybody in suits, $13 sides, etc.). While it was awesome, it could have been in any city anywhere. This place? No way. It was quintessential NYC neighborhood restaurant which is...More

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

Dinner with my adult son on his recommendation. This is a West Village restaurant with a “neighborhood flavor.” As such, I wrongly lowered by expectations. We began by ordering a bottle of Piedmont Gattinara which caused quite a commotion. I was told that diners had...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
