    One of my stand-by favorites for Italian food in the city. Service is better in the dining room versus the bar. Wine selection is great. Beef cheeks are amazing.

    Hate to follow the crowd, but uovo ravioli is so good. Beef cheeks + gnocchi is a great hearty dish. The cured meats & cheese selection are excellent. Excellent service. Love modern art decor.

    An Italian eatery with a loft-like dining area fit for enjoying their wide selection of small plates, shared plates, and antipasti. We love the giant ravioli with soft-cooked egg and truffle butter!

    SD26 is just amazing. The food is better than anywhere in Italy, the restaurant design is astounding and the owners are great people. A quality experience for all the six senses, worth every penny.

    The small plate dish names are a bit deceiving. Say no to the pizza bianca, say yes to the uovo and say hello to Russell Simmons. Next time I'll check out the enomatics and the outdoor seating.
