    Delish. Top Italian food in a cozy restaurant. Loved the toto chicken cutlet parma. Classic, throwback Italian, in a mod setting. Will be back for more!

    The crab cake was delicious and it's a good place for a casual but tasty meal.

    The burgers are delicious though they are more like steak sandwiches than prototypical burgers. Wash down with a toto mule if you are in the mood.

    Delicious simple Italian. Get the house red carafe and ask for off the menu garlic bread for $1.

    Good pappardelle and pasta in general but weirdly sweet ragu there was fruit in the sauce 😒

    Special paninis for the win. I have to resist ordering the chicken cutlet every time.

    Do Not Patronize this establishment! He employs illegal undocumented workers All of his Executive Chefs have quit He harasses his employees and cheats his customers on the liquor as food.

    Definitely look for Alison, the bartender, when you visit on a Saturday night. She has a great sense of humor and is always friendly when serving food and drinks.

    Jodi is my favorite bartender in all of NYC. Come alone or w friends and you will be welcome. Seasonal cocktails are highly recommended!

    The Eggplant and Smoked Mozzarella Rigatoni is my favorite dish. Everything on the Menu is worth a taste. The homemade Tiramisu is incredible.

    The Cubano Italiano panini is off the chain. Braised short rib & prosciutto with red onion, peppers and swiss cheesy. Come get some.

    The service is very slow, so you may have to "make a night of it."

    Try the french toast!

    The gorgonzola mushroom polenta is out of this world! Ask for a side of grilled bread to dip in the sauce (costs extra but worth it)

    Gen Bochanty · January 26, 2012

    The cuban panini is amazing 3 times wow

    If there are two of you, one should order fries, the other a salad with your paninis. Portions of fries are giant (and they're so good you will eat every one you're served).

    John Carney · November 26, 2011
  • John C.

    The fries are dangerously good. Can't stop eating them.

    Their brunch is awesome and I am never disappointed with the food. A great place to go always

    Juliet Wojciechowski · August 5, 2011

    Trust me on this: Get the Spinach salad. The dressing is light but flavors the taste of orange juice a bit. The aged Parm is great and crunch of Apples does this salad nice.

    They have happy hour process from 11-4 for food!
