    Charming. A light bustle for brunch that signals a lot of action going on but enough space to keep the noise level light. Nifty spot that's a little unnoticed from the street but gets plenty traffic.

    Ordered a prosciutto and parmesano sandwich. Although crazy delicious, $17 is a bit much. Will try again for pasta.

    One of my favorite spots in NYC. You'll want to stay all day eating the bowls of pasta (start w/ Bucatini Casio e Pepe) and paninis (start w/ Salame Rosa & Salva Creamasco), and drinking wine.

    Could be my favorite casual Italian place in NYC. Not exactly cheap but you feel like you are in Florence. Food and service is good, food is rustic Tuscan Italian. Short ribs are a must.

    Used to enjoy eating at the bar. Now expect indifferent service & $2 bread fee. How might one eat ricotta sans bread? Just include it in the cheese price, the surcharge is insulting.
