    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

    Best burrata in the city, hands down!

    Ravioli is great. Also they're cash only.

    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.

    Trusty neighborhood staple. Like eating at an Italian grandmas house. The first place I ever had burrata in like 1980 yo

    Cozy atmosphere, great food, and the bartender pours a generous glass. The Burrata is pictured below. Need I say more?

    Mozzarella, lemon spaghetti and pappardelle veal ragu

  • Raymond K.

    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.

  • Princess N.

    The WORST EVER. Reserved VIP, no waitress for an hour add 30 minutes for my bottle. HORRIBLE comm. even with manger. Accidentally left my bday gifts and I've been calling for a week now and NO ANSWER!

    phenomenal homemade pastas, burrata, etc.

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

    Matt R. · December 10, 2014
  • Gunnar A.

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

    Gunnar Aasen · November 30, 2014
  • Clay N.

    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.

    Clay Nielsen · November 29, 2014
  • Clyde Kelly J.

    Solid Italian food. Very small place. Limited add on options. The menu is the menu. Cash only!

    Great spot to sit outside and people watch. Try one of the many pastas! Super affordable.

    Nicolette Romero · September 27, 2014
  • Roger S.

    Sit at the open kitchen bar and have some wine with dinner and grappa with dessert. Special pastas such as pappardelle worth it every time. Reliable tagliata toscana. Friendly.

    Roger Schonfeld · September 27, 2014
  • Evie

    Good cheap wine, amazing pasta dishes, and flavorful entrees. Get the rigatoni al ragu, seared salmon, or chicken.

    Frank's handmade ravioli is everything. If you're not too full afterward, we also recommend finishing the meal with homemade tiramisu. Read more

    Stupid 4sqr. Including having a busboy reach across our table to pour water for the table next to us.

    $45 for a glass of wine, pasta, and three slices of mozz as an app? No thank you.
