    House-made Cavatelli and Escarole & Cannellini Bean soup is freaking amazing! Interior is cozy and warm. Beware: waiters are over-attendant but the food is so good that you will pay no mind to them.

    A great, light-bodied red from Sicily...the Etna Rosso '09, based on the rare nerello mascalese grape, offers cherry, gentle spice, and earth flavors. Pairs exceptionally well with pastas.

    This really is a good place but you have to make it work for you. Play around with the menu, the food is great and the coffee is excellent (it's stumptown)

    Amazing and cosy italian food. It always has a wait BUT they take your mobile # and call you when the table frees up. Try Tapeo 29 for a drink on the corner while you wait... Read more

    Get the arugula and fresh mozzarella salad, the mozzarella is delicious! The anti pasti, superb (one of the best prosciutto!), the sandwiches are delectable! pastas: the cavatelli or papardelle!

    If you've never been, I recommend getting the polenta with red peppers and sweet sausage. That was my first meal there, and it's been a love affair ever since. Sandwiches are great too!

    I've had the cavateli sausage dish over 30 times. It's great. Grab a carafe of the house red wine and for dessert... the plums in marscapone are unexpectedly fantastic!

    Cavatelli every time. And the ricotta, local honey, and black pepper crostini. Amazing! Stumptown is great after dinner too. My favorite restaurant in New York.

    Nice little Italian restaurant and great for brunch. Go for the farmer's breakfast and don't forget about the bacon, it's the best!

    Looking for a great white wine? You can't go wrong with the '07 Erbaluce di Caluso 'La Torrazza' by Luigi Ferrando from Piedmont. A stellar wine, and a great value at $32. Highly recommended!

    Start with the escarole salad... and DO NOT miss the pine nut polenta or house-made cavatelli with spicy sausage & browned sage butter!

    Went there for brunch and left with a big smile on my face. Give the oat meal a try - ask for extra sirup and fruit. Leave with a smile on your face.

    The bacon here is at least a quarter of an inch thick - a must at brunch! They also brew delicious Stumptown coffee.

    Looking for Breakfast? The French Toast is simply the best you'll ever had. (Their bacon is a dream as well)

    Best Italian food I've had in a very long time. The crostinis are a great first bite, and the pastas are full of flavor.

    The cavatelli with hot sausage is good stuff. End your night with the vanilla bean creme brulee. It had perfect notes of vanilla.

    For brunch don't miss the French Toast or the bacon. Yes, the plate of bacon is worth $5.

    Get the cavatelli. If you don't, I'll hunt you down. Also, antipasti plate is a steal. Stewed prunes for dessert.

    For a great white with crisp acidity and strong minerality, opt for the blanc de morgex. Great price too!

    They will not seat you unless your entire group is present. 4/5 people, you will stand around even if they are not busy.

    Hostess will always act surprised to see customers come in at brunch. Should I have to tell you I'm here to eat? Should you act like you're doing me a favor? :/
