    A hole in the wall with solid rock music, al dente pasta, attentive service and delicious bread.

    One of the best authentic Italian food I've tried in the city. Be sure to try spaghetti with clams- it's always on the special menu. And the pizza here, amazing!

    The best margherita pizza I had in NYC, comparing with Motorino, Eataly and some other places.

    Wow, all the stars! I lived in Italian Switzerland for 4 years and must say, the pasta here was perfection, as was the Panna Cotta (and I'm a total panna cotta snob). I will be back. Like every day.

    The atmosphere was great and the prices were fair. However, it's supposed to have great pizza and I thought it was only average. Had great potential but needed tastier sauce and more toppings.

    Whatever you do, get the burrata. The spaghetti limone, and the rigatoni were also unbelievable. Even the olives and olive oil for the table are amazing. Come hungry.

    Burrata pizza was out of this world. It's always lively and packed when I've been around 9:30-10pm. The back gets loud but the bar is perfect for sharing din and drinks. Cocktails are strong 💪
