    Pricey but great if you want to splurge on lunch, or go during restaurant week.
  • Zane D.
    Nice, Elegant n classy but the experience could b better n my waiter assumed I wanted my food well done ( bc I look young) disrespectful -- been 5+ times when opened but probably wouldn't go again

    Love the portion! The food was good and was good quality, everything I had (salmon crudo and egg pasta) were just on the saltier side for me

    One of the best meals I've had in NYC. Best barrel-aged Negroni I've ever tasted. The Fusilli Calabrese is the perfect balance of smokey and spicy.

    Great negronis. I didn't know there could be so much negroni variability-- let the bartender guide you based on your tastes

    All the small touches, from the amuse and bread service to the caramels before the check, appear even if you're only popping in for a negroni and bowl of agnolotti. Read more

    The Branzino with salsify and oyster mushroom was well done. The butternut and vin santo sauce went well. However the beef dish isn't very memorable.

    Had the pasta duo to start. The saffron seafood pasta was too strong on the Meyer lemon. Couldn't taste the seafood. The buckwheat pasta was good however

    Out of the bread basket, get the focaccia and grissini. Forget the sesame bread- not very memorable. Focaccia had the right amount of olive oil and amazing freshly ground black pepper.

    Great food that I would put at two Michelin stars. The portion sizes are a little bigger than what would expect from fine dining so be careful with the four course menu.

    The bartenders seem to be mixologists. I asked the waiter to make me a spicy tequila drink (not on the cocktail menu) and they delivered in spades. It was a basil / jalapeño / hint of pineapple drink.

    Impeccable service. Get the lobster pasta, tiramisu and the formaggi platter. Sister loved the prosecco options as well. Pricey but worth the splurge before a show, or for a special occasion
