The hotel has a wonderful decor of bleached wood floors, wrought iron chandeliers. The bartender is friendly, and makes great cocktails and sangria. The menu, while slanted towards Italian, is diverse, and the food was delicious. We had the burrata in puff pastry with white truffle sauce, which was heavenly. Service is excellent, and the prices reasonable for what you... More

This restaurant is wonderful. The location is almost right on the East River. They have indoor and outdoor seating. The restaurant interior is beautiful. The hostess was friendly and the staff was very professional and attentive most of the time. They have a full bar but the female bartender, didn't catch her name, was a bit slow. The food was...

Nephew's wedding rehearsal dinner was held here in a spacious private section separated by floor-to-ceiling drapes. The atmosphere was classy with Tuscan tones, understated chandeliers, and wood beam high ceiling. The building itself is historic. It felt so special that it's not so noticeable that food portions were very small. Everyone commented that they didn't have enough to eat though... More

Pleasantly surprised at the variety and quality of the food. All fresh ingredients. I had the ravioli special and my friends had the eggplant parmesian and gnocchi. All were excellent. Great wine list as well.

Very good atmosphere, nice interior. Pretty big menu. Food is cooked with some "contemporary" touch, so it tastes a bit different from Italian as we know it. But it was very good. Good selection of wines. Service is very friendly.

We were only in New York for a few hours and had made the reservation before we left the Uk. We were welcomed as though old friends and were served a wonderfully authentic Italian meal and a really good Pino Grigio! Having first visited the new World Trade Center and paid our respects, this lunch was the perfect conclusion to... More

This was one of our favorite Brooklyn restuarants but due to very high rent they moved to Kent Ave. The new place is much more expensive and upscale. Miss the old place.

I've been here twice and both times were fantastic. Amazing decor, modern feel with a rustic twist, it has a very comfortable and cozy vibe. Can't go wrong with owners who grew up in Williamsburg, you know you'll be getting quality Italian along with great hospitality. Always a friendly vibe. Keep in mind portions are smaller because you're dining at... More
