    Best seats at Sauce are at the bar where you can see the kitchen. So grab a stool and order the filetto di pomodoro with fresh ricotta. To DIE for. Steak was basically my side dish.

    This place is amazing. The pana cotta, pizzas, and salads are amazing. You need to try the watermelon salad- it’s out of this world. The avocado salad is also very very good

    Great spot for a Sunday Italian meal on the lower east side. Try the zucchini matchsticks as an app and get the braciole for dinner

    One of the restaurants where I would love to come back. Good zucchini soup, pan seared salmon and chocolate cake. Wait-ers/resses are polite and refill your water all the time.

    The best fried zucchini I've ever had - make sure to ask for it w Marinara sauce. Chicken parm is good, lasagna is awesome.

    One of my favorite restaurants in the city. Order the grilled octopus salad as a starter and split the polenta for your main. If they have the burrata, order that too.

    The lasagna is delicious and a manageable portion, though the bar selection is a bit limited. Try the garlic bread for an appetizer as well!

    Killer playlist and solid wine selection. Food is on point as well. You could get the polenta plank for presentation alone but it also happens to be damn tasty.

    Grub Street off-menu dish: Amatriciana. "Extra-thick bucatini tossed w mint & pecorino then topped w a dry-cured, 24-hr braised spare rib belly chop. Call ahead—it takes a full day just to cook it."

    Great place! The seating area outside is great, there's always sun! Also it's nice to check out the hassle in the kitchen when sitting at the bar. Porcini Tortellini are really awesome

    Delicious, casual, inexpensive Italian spot. Outdoor seating. Vegetarian friendly. Loved the cavatelli. For added richness go for the add'l dollop of ricotta. Whoa.

    The heart and soul of Italian cuisine is the ragu, repurposed under Chef Prisinzano's 4th Manhattan restaurant as SAUCE. Farm to table, nose to tail, seasonal, in-house butcher. Delicious + reasonable Read more

    the burrata comes in on thursdays and sells out quickly. probably related to the fact that you can usually find me at the bar pushing it. don't miss out.

    Incredible food, good drinks, great service. Buratta is sublime, and all the pasta is spectacular. Highly recommended!

    Awesome Place and Great Food. Spaghetti with Meatballs and a Glass of Wine is a perfect call. Best Italian food I had in NY, reminded me my Nona's food.

    Get "The Plank" if you dare. Super filling but super yummy way to experience the ragu. Also burrata if they have as special - cheese ball as big as my head. For realz.

    You can order from the full dinner menu at the bar and sometimes get seated there a lot faster than for a table. Really delicious!

    The spaghetti and meatballs here are amazing! Don't get the burrata & rigatoni special though...$27 for a bowl of noodles and cheese with olive oil is not worth it.

    Homemade pasta, great wines and frozen mugs for the beer. What more could you ask for? Oh, don't forget the homemade desserts.

    Can't go wrong w/ pappardelle pasta with bolognese sauce! Also the simple and fresh argula salad is a nice start as well as the pate & fennel!

    The sizes of the dishes are radically different. Went with a group and seemed like anything less than $12 is a small side, anything more than $20 is served on a huge platter & is enough for 2 people.

    Tapas style Italian. Great sauce (of course). Pasta was great, just wish they had bigger portions. It's Pasta... it's cheap to make.

    Great food and wine, outdoor seating is nice in the summer. Their taste in music is a bit questionable tho.
