    Con:Horrible sangria seemed was made with can syrup. Servers have an attitude. Pro:Cute outdoor to have a drink or two.

    To be honest, the meal was horrible. Took 25 min to get milk for my now cold coffee and the omelettes were overcooked ant the toppings were just thrown on top rather than cooked in the eggs.

    Pizza is crusty crispy and delicious.

    Service and food is OK, but you come here for the $16 bottle of champagne or carafe of mimosa/Bloody Mary/sangria. (Unlimited option is no-more)

    Pros: You can make a res, it's not crowded for Sunday brunch & the crab cake benedict was yummy! Con: Slow servers who have to be reminded of your requests.

    $16 all you can drink wine, and a $20 all you can drink brunch special on weekends. One of the best places on the UWS.

    Try the Linguine alle Vongole - Perfectly cooked clams. Sauce is just spicy enough to bring out all the flavors. Fantastic.
