    Cozy vibes, the pizza is fantastic and reasonable, the nutella calzone/focaccia is amazing and they have an unbeatable 3 for 1 brunch drink situation on the weekends.

    Pizza is delicious. Do not take to go (less delicious when eaten at home)

    Can't go wrong with the baby meatballs, at dinner or with baked eggs at brunch. Also, the pizza Bianca with mushrooms.. Guaranteed to leave fat and happy.

    Decent za, the truffle one is quite choice

    Saarim Zaman · October 11, 2015

    Simple, solid food at an excellent price. Tight but trendy next to east village radio.

    Russell Hirschorn · October 3, 2015
  • Mary C.

    Nothing is better than the roasted eggplant

    Mary Catherine · October 3, 2015
  • Gustavo M.

    This place is a hidden gem -- try the Lemon pasta, $5 draft beer and the fire roasted egg plant.

    Gustavo Malagón · September 16, 2015
  • Keith L.

    Great flat bread Italian style pizza. Great Italian beers too.

    Keith Lea · September 13, 2015

    lasagna and wine

    Karl Schaffer · August 3, 2015
  • Barton S.

    Really great pizzas with a nice chewy, woody crust. But I wouldn't venture too far on the menu; most of the other stuff I've had is overpriced, oversized and under par.

    Barton Smith · August 2, 2015
  • Holly S.

    Meatball pizza

    Holly Stair · July 31, 2015

    Stick with the spaghetti limon, it's to die for.

    Morgan Polotan · July 24, 2015
  • John C.

    The roasted chicken is nothing short of fantastic. Ravioli is great if your in the mood for pasta

    John Cline · July 18, 2015
  • Pawel P.

    Had the ravioli (mushroom) and it was incredible!

    Pawel Pietryka · July 9, 2015
  • Shalyn H.

    Try picking 1 or 2 appetizers from their specials menu. They've always turned out to be exceptional. (I've tried the burrata, stracciatella, grilled octopus...)

    Spaghetti Limon!! To die for.

    Ritika Singh · June 21, 2015
  • Yera H.

    Pretty good pizza-- nice chewy crust and good mozzarella. They send you to the dark, weird basement for takeout, though.

    Yera Ha · June 16, 2015
  • Ina L.

    Lemon pasta is so refreshing and chewy. Perfect for summer! Also love their juicy pizza with crispy crust. Wait gets long after 7

    Ina Li · May 30, 2015
  • Kt L.

    This should be on your radar. Prosciutto and arugula pizza!

    Kt Lacasse · May 26, 2015
  • Vlada A.

    It's true, spaghetti limone 👌🏼 and pizza salame piccante 👍🏼 I have to run 10 extra miles 😫

    Ouvo Pizza special is so good: margarita pizza + prosciutto + an egg in the center.

    Michelle Alexander · April 30, 2015
  • Sonja

    Delicious Italian food in this cute place! Quite a lot of vegan options to find!!

    Truffle pizza and lemon pasta! Both soooo good.

    Green eggs and ham

  • Ryan M.

    The burrata was very good; although, it's hard to mess that up. Lamb ragu was good not great

    Ryan McMahon · March 21, 2015
  • Donna

    Beyond great pasta and pizzas they're very inventive with their veggie sides: blackened eggplant and portobello arugula salad are both awesome ways to balance a heavy delicious ragu or gnocchi

    Donna · March 19, 2015
  • Andy T.

    Fried calamari and thin crust pizzas are great

    Andy Tao · March 13, 2015
  • Paloma O.

    Yummmyyy! Try the pasta limone! Reallyy good

    Great pizza. Get the eggplant!

    Jessica · March 1, 2015
  • Sarah S.

    Busy, cash only, they'll only seat you when your entire party arrives, and hold your table for 15 minutes max. Order the roasted eggplant; they carve it up at the table.

    Sarah Spagnolo · February 21, 2015
  • Matt L.

    Great simple, and affordable Italian food in a friendly setting

    Matt Leva · February 20, 2015
  • Andrew F.

    Get a pasta and a pizza. Don't pick just one

    Andrew Furman · February 17, 2015
  • Kate Y.

    Get the burrata!! Comes with fresh tomatoes and basil.

    Kate Yan · February 15, 2015
  • Leah G.

    Pizza Bianca was delicious...white pizza with truffle oil. Great place for big parties...they have a semi-private back room that's super cozy

    Leah Geoghegan · February 1, 2015
  • Sara T.

    Amazing! Real brick oven pizza and authentic Italian dishes. I had the salame piccante pizza, which was great. I will definitely go back to try the others!

    Sara T. · January 12, 2015
  • Nick A.

    Chicken parm and spaghetti limone are always on point.

    Nick Andlinger · January 12, 2015
  • Olivia C.

    The burrata is a must. Can't even describe how good it was.
