    So so good! Came for graduation dinner (great for big groups). HUGE portions. Order calamari, mussels, chicken marsala, shrimp scampi, and tiramisu. Best meal you'll have!
  • Joseph H.
    Decent family style restaurant. Drinks tend to be short , and over priced. Veal Parmigiana is very salty. Linguine in white clam sauce is fabulous.

    Food is not consistently good. The same dish could be fabulous on one visit, and a salt lick on the next visit. Same is true for the drinks. Don't go on a Saturday night, unless you're into very noisy

    GO WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE! Huge plates. If you're going as a couple a small plate of meatballs and a salad is more than enough! Don't even try ordering two dinner plates!

    A much better experience than the Times Square location. Avoid the midtown tourists and enjoy tastier dishes

    Poor service, bad (and expensive) wine menu. Food comes in large ammount, but it's not worth the price. Nice if you want bad cheap food and bad expensive wine. Did I mention bad service? Avoid it!

    Nearly impossible to get a table by walk in during the weekend. Make a reservation and be sure to be there as a larger group as possible. Portion is humongous.

    Food is outstanding. The only problem-your entire party must be present to be seated, even with a reservation. Best Italian food, great wait staff. Always enough for a doggie bag!

    I wouldn't say authentic, but good Italian food. It's an upscale olive garden, over crowded, loud, tables too close together. The food is served in family sized portions, expect to pay about $30.
