    Been here several times and you will not regret ordering the Black Manhattan cocktail, short rib, cauliflower or cheese cake. Open kitchen makes it fun to sit at the bar & watch the chefs in action.

    The tagliatelle al ragu is very good. It's both saucy and cheesy, but not exceedingly so. And they have Peroni, which is always a plus at any pasta spot.

    The farro salad is the quintessential summer salad. The corn tortelli is amazing... But the pork chop blew our minds. James was excellent; offered solid recommendations and was super attentive.

    Solid italian spot as expected from the a di la folks. One of those places where everything on the menu looks great. Had the farro salad and the pork chop and both were great. Will be back for more.

    Big outdoor space, much of it covered. At brunch, order savory mains and the ricotta fritters with jam to share. Sweet vs. savory problem solved!

    late night dinner. had roasted amish chicken. not bad. mac n cheese was very good. if feeling adventurous have the crispy beef tongue fries. worth a revisit

    Affordably priced Italian from the team behind neighborhood favorite al di la. Pasta is great here, and there's a nice outdoor dining space.

    Get a table outside and order an aperol spritz to start (if it's the summertime.) If you can't decide on a pasta, the tagliatelle al ragu is a great bet.
  • The Wall Street Journal
    The Aperol Spritz ($9), made of a bitter orange liquor, prosecco and a splash of citrus, brings to mind bocce games in shirt sleeves on a summer afternoon in the Riviera. Read more

    Great Italian food from the Al Di La people. The squid ink pasta is a reliable favorite. Cocktails are good too.

    Some of the best bacon I've ever had. The polenta and mushrooms for brunch is great, as is the pork belly hash. And the staff - soooo sweet. Great brunch!

    The hake... What can I say.... A veritable feast. A pork roast of a fish bake. Delicious broth, perfectly accompanied by olives and roasted tomatoes. A coup. Bravo.

    chitarra neri (squid ink pasta) and ricotta cavatelli are my staples, plus any seasonal salad. always fresh and always good. great wines and cocktails too.

    Everything I ate here was outstanding. Malfatti, beets and goat cheese, fresh young chicken, farro salad. Cocktails also quite nice.

    Splitty-splitty on the Malfati and the Ricotta Cavatelli. Al di la food without the massive wait. Plus, a really nice outdoor area.

    The food was decent. The Mac N Cheese was nice but not amazing. Not sure if I would go back but it was a good place to try. Great homemade ginger soda and nice vibe.

    Farro salad is to die for. Veal is fantastic as are the spicy chick peas and the Taglietalle. Terrific addition to Washington Ave.

    Place used to be amazing but brunch today was a fail. There were just two snap peas and two chunks of cheese in my farro salad. smoky paprika potatoes were the star of brunch - now pulled from menu.

    The farro salad is excellent. Prices across the board are reasonable and a couple can easily (and happily) munch for under $70.

    Operated by the same people who run Al Di La in Park Slope. Anything they pair with creamy polenta is worth trying.

    Musts: Farro salad, spicy chickpeas, tagliatelle (exactly like the one at Al Di La). Skip the veal breast -- nauseatingly fatty.

    Cauliflower steak to start, squid ink pasta for your main, and tongue fries instead of dessert. Thank me later.

    Love the food, love the energy here. Skip waiting at Tooker Alley - terrible service, expensive drinks from premix syrups destroy the vibe you want when going to Corvo!

    Tagliatelle al ragu is everything you want out of a pasta dish: cheesy, funky, meaty. The octupus confit pasta was a little too lemony—I would skip.

    Our food took an hour to come, an absolute no no in NYC when someone else can make it faster & better. Also saw them keeping their French toast moist on the grill, um don't order this!

    Calamari salad, squid ink pasta with octopus, and chocolate bread pudding. Pair with an Old Washington. It's the perfect meal. Yum.
