    The pastas are definitely the focal point of Thompson's newest & trendiest spot. The gnocchi, agnolotti w/ sweetbreads & seafood linguini are outstanding. Pay with Cover at skip waiting for the check!

    From the chef behind Dell'Anima, you're sure to have a great meal here - whether it's the lamb shank hash for brunch, or any of the fresh pastas for dinner. Try to snag an outside table if possible!

    The gnocchi is phenomenal. Meatball and polenta, grilled endives, fluke crudo - all excellent. Have the Dobel cocktail and enjoy. Pay with Cover.

    Chef Gabe Thompson, of L'Artusi, Dell'Anima, and Anfora. Order any of the polenta dishes, and make sure to try one or two of the pastas. There is a big bar to accommodate you and a few of your friends Read more

    Food is amazing! Personal favorites: broccoli rabe polenta, grilled fennel, the arancini is the best I've had in New York. Pappardelle with short rib ragu was also delicious. All in all, new favorite!

    The brunch menu at here has a little something for everyone. You can get Italian pastries, salads, pancakes, fried chicken, pastas, and egg dishes. Order the polenta with shrimp, bacon, and tomato.

    Plan extra time in your schedule because they unapologetically sat us over 30 minutes after our reservation time.

    Order the apple cinnamon oatmeal pancakes for brunch and you'll dream about them later.

    The garganelli verde is the best thing since sliced bread

    Maple glazed squash is extraordinary. On the sides menu but might as well be classified as a dessert. Gotta get it.

    Will F. · November 14, 2012

    Pork chop at an Italian place? It's delicious. Don't forget to pay with Cover!

    White Negroni for the win! Best cocktail I've had in a while.

    Though the main-course pastas are the high point of a meal here, there are substantial proteins, too. Eat this: Escarole salad, octopus, sweetbread agnolotti, linguine with clams, pumpkin budino Read more

    Get there 30 min before your reservation and order a drink in the lounge. Great staff, and delicious pasta to boot.

  • Maxwell Z.

    The first east side restaurant from the owners of Dell'anima & L'Artusi. Try the pasta, definitely.

    Maxwell Z. · November 10, 2012
  • Katie B.

    Charred octopus and brussels sprouts are amazing! Go for three courses and spread it out.

    Katie B. · October 21, 2012
  • Shirley B.

    Order the polenta with mushrooms and chile- ditch the salad split a pasta n fish with someone and order some sides :)

  • Serious Eats

    In a large, bright, occasionally noisy space, chef Gabe Thompson pulls off smart but crowd-pleasing Italian that's full of big flavors.

    Incredible food, incredible service. Went out of their way to make the night special - will definitely come back

    Julia C. · June 14, 2013
  • Saneel R.

    One of the best by the glass wine lists (especially sparkling) you'll find. Just order by glasses over the meal for an adventure.

    Saneel R. · June 4, 2013
  • JuAnne N.

    Everything was great but these dishes really stand out -the mushroom salad, the perfectly tender pork chop, hazelnut chocolate cake!!

    JuAnne N. · April 27, 2013

    Daniel the waiter is a sweetheart! Warm mushroom Salad: a vinegary miracle. The Sunchoke contorno was a delight. Also: Vin Santo! Just eat here!

    Food & drinks were excellent as is the case with Dell'Anima, L'Artrusi & Anforra. The only gripe I have with this place is the staff I encountered. From bartender to waiter. Not a fan of the service

    Antonio G. · January 4, 2013
  • Amy

    Skip the entrees and get some polenta + pasta dishes and a bunch of sides. And the tuna carpaccio is insane, do it.

    Amy · January 1, 2013
  • David P.

    Cinnamon + manhattan = delicious cocktail

    David P. · December 30, 2012
  • Cecilia S.

    Get a pasta dish as a starter, then the short ribs polenta as the main. Yes, that's two meals almost. But why not?

    Cecilia S. · December 17, 2012
  • Seth L.

    Window couch is great. Octopus was fantastic! Great wine selections by the glass like Wind Gap and Scholium Project.

    Seth L. · December 6, 2012

    Go for the Charred Octopus app, the Agnolotti pasta, and a weird/loud playlist.

    Sweet: pumpkin pancakes with mascarpone. Savory: egg scramble with brussel sprouts and speck.

    Yummy bloodys

    Branzino was way too salty. Stick with the pastas - which are very good

    Jennifer R. · October 17, 2013
  • Serena

    salads are on the small side, apps and entrees were somewhat underwhelming. pasta's the right move here and they are all exceptional, get over your squeamish-ness and go for the sweetbread pasta.

    Serena · August 29, 2013
  • Sarah C.

    All of the pastas are seriously delicious. Meant to save some to take home for later...but mine was so good I ate the whole thing.
