    The breakfast sandwich approaches perfection.

    Despite a recent change in chefs, the food is still phenomenal! Salt-baked Bronzino, crispy artichokes delish!!

    Everything's good but everything's little overpriced too.

    Delectable Italian food. Make sure you try the salumi!

    Fantastic Italian restaurant with generous portions of wine. The olive oil gelato is decent (not as good as Otto's)

    Don't miss the pork, it is delicious! Every ingredients is cooked to perfection for an ultimate tasty and crispy meal.

    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.

  • Mike C.

    Basically everything.

    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.

    Great ambiance upstairs. Enjoyed the salted beets and the veal pasta.

    Try the homemade Salami plate! Amazing!

    Overrated dinner. The ribs have an interesting char but not my cup of tea. Artichoke is alright.

    Great breakfast spot - let alone everything else they do!

    Stephen Barber · November 20, 2014
  • Noah W.

    The breakfast pizza with house cured prosciutto is great and big enough to feed two. Sneaky good brunch spot that takes reservations.

    Came for a work lunch, small menu but we loved everything. The portions are small too. So be forewarned, size doesn't detract from taste.

    Jessica Almog · November 7, 2014
  • Bryan A.

    Artichokes and ricotta were on point!

    Bryan Andrew · October 29, 2014

    Cozy atmosphere and delicious (strong) cocktails

    Monti Bray · October 29, 2014

    Great bread, cheeses and charcuterie. Excellent pasta and a wonderful whole fish dish !

    Best Gnocci on the planet!

    Gnocchi, atmosphere

    Short ribs sandwich is like the sound of your grandmother saying "I love you" but in food form.

    London Nagai · September 29, 2014
  • Ali F.

    The crispy artichokes & orecchiette 👌

    Ali Feinstein · September 21, 2014

    Small portions and pricey but very good. Crunchy bread. Good spot to take a needy/skinny Italian chick

    Jack Gashi · September 19, 2014
  • Michael F.

    Great food, of course the spare ribs are an absolute must, if you are hungry ok even for one

    Dan Kluger, chef of ABC Kitchen, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Roasted whole chicken. Read more

    great, friendly service. amazing food (and they give you a lot). best spot in NoHo for a breakfast meeting. #coffee

    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.

  • Alicia P.

    A wonderful experience overall: the crispy cod panini is to die for, their cocktail collection is great and the service is excellent!

    Make Monday a little better by heading to Il Buco Alimentari for lunch. They are debuting Focaccia Farcita: sandwiches served on thinner, house-made focaccia. Delicious. Read more

    Octopus Pasta is done well.

    Your ideal meal: acorn squash salad and ricotta bruschetta with grapes to start, bucatini cacio e pepe as the pasta course, and spit-roasted short ribs for a main. Read more

  • Denis S.

    The short ribs for two are just as good as all the tips say. Perfect juicy texture, and plenty of meat for two.

    Denis Sosnovtsev · August 9, 2014
  • Kris C.

    I ordered the short ribs for two. Neither I nor the other person helping me with the dish found it worthy of the hype.

    Kris Concepcion · August 9, 2014
  • Cristian G.

    Great spot, ideal to catch up with friends or go on a date. The artichokes and the short ribs are amazing.

    Cristian Gonzalez · August 8, 2014

    Check out the abstract chandelier sculpture.

    Denis Sosnovtsev · August 7, 2014

    Start with the Hamachi Crudo, Fried Artichokes, Beef Tartare. If you don’t order the Bucatini Cacio e Pepe and the Short Rib for Two you have lost the day!

    CITY GRIT · August 5, 2014
  • Epicurious

    Beef tartare topped with rings of hearts of palm is just plain sexy, a hulking plate of beef that is slow-cooked to an impossibly tender finish. Read more

    They make their own salumeria [charcuterie] and bread in-house, perfect to grab a quick and delicious dinner.

    Daniel Boulud · July 30, 2014
  • Jon S.

    the cacio e pepe was the standout delicious dish of the meal. and the artichoke appetizer is great for sharing.

    Jon Steinback · July 12, 2014

    The desserts are surpring good.

    Cacio e Pepe is the way to go

    Melissa Arrrgh · May 23, 2014
  • Talia

    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.

    Talia · May 20, 2014
  • Rosamaria P.

    You can't go wrong with any of the choices here. Everything is delicious. The only change I wish they made is the staff up front. They aren't helpful nor particularly nice. But the food is delicious!

    Rosamaria P. · May 11, 2014

    Ciabatta in their cafe

    Bit pricy, but good!! Also check out the products they sell!

    Fabulous service and cacio e pepe to die for!
