    Order the arancini. It's not on the menu but its a big ball of fried risotto. FYI, the restaurant smells like a hot glue gun (Dunno why). The food is great (for late night) & its unbelievably fast.

    Horridly rude owners/servers and their combo of no tap water/$3 per bottle is farcical and unique to them: take an uber over to Chinatown for your late night eats and you'll save money on water alone!

    We finished our lunch and the server was too busy flirting with the hostess to notice. After 10 min I finally walked over to him, 10 feet from us, to ask for the check. Pizza was great though.

    Great for casual late night Italian food. Pastas and pizzas hit the spot, hot chocolate is pretty good, but desserts are meh. After 2am, you occasionally get to see some drunk brawls.

    be nice to the 'bouncer'. he determines if you get your pizza or not. also, slices are as big as your face!

    Come here if you work late on weekends and want to grab a rice ball or a couple slices of pizza when you get out.

    Great food. We loved lasagna & eggplant. Great sauce and the bread was great. Service was the worst I've ever had. Waitress came over twice... apparently we were aggravating her with our being ali

    Awesome early mornings...espresso, old Italian guys, and Italian newspapers. If you want wine advice, go somewhere fancier than the "diner" of the neighborhood that's open till 3AM.

    The ham and cheese calzone is excellent! But the service is slow if you come around the lunch hour.

    Food is great, atmosphere is awesome. Paying $3 for a can of soda kinda sucked.

    Decent food. Grab a calzone if you're into calzones. They won't give you free water, so, you know, FYI.

    Waiter rude, spoke little English. Asked for water & got bottled for $3. Tap water?"we don't have that!" I asked if they could do a scoop of gelato with dessert & he said yes, brought 2 full ones.

    Great spot to sit by the window and people watch. Also, try the cappucino with tiramisu. Very good.

    Don't order a cheese pizza. Order a pizza that they actually have to make to ensure that it's fresh.

    The comment about no tap water may be out of date because they have it now. Bread wasn't warm.

    The cheese and pepperoni pizza were only ok. The lady at the counter is pretty rude. Go here if it's late in the night and you don't expect much from the place.

    Don't ask the waiter for advice on wine. He is underage. No ambience. We're moving on.
