    This is the best. The soup prodo with meat balls is the best I ever had. Also gavi wine. So good. Great great place. Iesha in the front is a great hostess.

    Octopus salad was wonderful. The atmosphere was great, the 4 of us actually had a conversation without struggling.

    The food (seafood, meat and veggies) was fantastic but the whiskey cocktails were better.

    My friend had her wedding reception here, it was great! Watermelon Bellini was so refreshing. I had the Prosciutto Egg Benedict the rest of the table went for chicken and waffle! All delicious!

    Chefs have changed over the years but the product and atmosphere are among the best in the upper west side. Love the escarole salad and good wine list. Eating at the bar is recommended.

    Great old school service. Favorites were the delicious braised goat and the blood orange duck. Nice date night spot.

    It's definitely a dine-in destination; delivery from here ruins the experience (cold food).

    The carrot appetizer is simple but delicious, and the strozzapreti with broccoli rabe pesto is a must. Duck enter is a great fall dish.

    This is a great date spot. The food is amazing and they are very generous with their pours. The veal milanese is by far the best thing on the menu. One of my favorite dishes in all of NYC.

    My favorite restaurant on the UWS. Service is unparalleled. Enjoy many of their dishes but the Pork chop & tagliatelle are favorites. Try the cheesecake, & the wine pairing for dessert.

    Restaurants such as ‘Cesca, where CIA alum and Next Iron Chef contestant Amanda Frietag has worked, are transforming the Upper West Side of Manhattan into a true culinary destination. Bon Appétit!

    Cute place, if I lived closer I'd be a regular. Try the frisée salad w/black truffle vinaigrette & the black squid ink linguini w/main lobster, tomatoes, garlic & basil. Delish

    Great Squid Ink Tagliolini w/ Lobster, but stay away from the Vanilla Sky cocktail - it has an aftertaste like dish soap!

    Ask for Raven! We had a riot with her as a group. She was very attentive as a server but her sense of humor and fun added to our celebratory last night working in the city!

    Don't order a bottle of water. They'll keep opening more bottles without telling you and then stick you with a huge bill.

    Grab a big booth or a secluded table at this cozy neighborhood Italian joint. The wine list is extensive, the décor inviting and the sea scallops are devine.
