    Overpriced and inattentive staff (I was charged for a glass of wine that was spilled..?). To add insult to injury, it's cash only.

    Not as cheap as it used to be but still a good place for a solid NY Italian meal. Try their burrata appetizer and ask about the specials of the day.

    An all time NYC fav! Don't miss the rigatoni, mussels, or the black spaghetti.

    This is where the Meatball Shop gets its meatballs, so you know they'll be good. Rigatoni al Ragu is solid.

    If your dinner party gets placed at the a huge communal wooden table right next to the bar, sit on the side facing the wall because you'll get trapped against the wall on the other side.

    Baked eggs pomodoro are savory and delicious; comes with toast good for soaking up the tomato sauce. French toast is amazing: firm and fluffy, filled with jam, comes with lots of fruit.

    Do you have cash on you? It so, come here and pray the rabbit pappardelle is a special. If not, take out cash, come here and pray the rabbit pappardelle is a special.

    Order the chicken parm. It's not on the menu, but they'll make it for you.

    without writing a full love letter to my black linguine calamari (wowowow), I suggest the generously spread liver pate on fresh crostini. mind-blowingly delicious

    I had heard rave reviews, but the food was pretty standard. The beet salad is fresh as can be, the sandwiches look good. Eggs Benedict was nothing special. Loved the old-school music.

    Rigatoni al Ragu with your parents. Rigatoni al Ragu with your date. Rigatoni al Ragu alone. Only the quantity of wine will potentially vary

    Maybe was an off night. Pasta overcooked, mozzarella wasn't fresh. Sorry, but we were disappointed. However, place was packed.

    the day I came the burrata was very almost frozen, firm, and unappetizing, not worth $23- get bruschetta, sicilian salad, rigatoni and spaghetti with broccoli! fava puree is good too

    The gnocchi is 👌🏼. Don't come on too hot a night though, the inside gets warm because of the kitchen.

    Make sure you check out the specials board (back wall) before you order or you'll miss out on some good dishes. Also, cash only.

    Exposed brick and old school jams. Great place to grab a bite with a friend or casual date. No frills Italian cuisine that's completely unapologetic about its simple and fresh ingredients.

    Has been our go-to Italian spot since MAX closed. The Rigatoni al Ragu is the real deal.

    Understated Italian joint with delicious food and reasonable prices. When in season, the truffle pasta is a solid value for truffle lovers. Cash only.

    Very authentic and affordable Italian. Specials change daily. Hands down one of the best wine lists in the city. Sit facing the kitchen if you want some entertainment.
