    you can't go wrong with the pasta: spinach gnocchi and tagliatelle were both amazing.

    Nice, romantic vibe. Attentive service, love that they open the windows and seat people indoors and out. $7 house red wine 👌 fish of the day was melt in your mouth!

    Grilled octopus is amazing. And of course, pasta. Small and cozy. Cash only.

    Get the spinach gnocchi in Gorgonzola sauce. Rich. excellent. Bruschetta toast needed to be crisp. Grilled calamari huge letdown-not sure what ppl are thinking. Tiramisu is so average.

    While the price is right there are definitely a lot better Italian restaurants in the neighborhood

    Our New Favorite Place - Reminds us of a place we ate at in Torino, Italy. The food and service are excellent.

    My favorite Italian restaurant in the city. There isn't a thing on the menu that isn't good but the piadina mozzarella are a must for appetizers.

    Gnocchi gnocchi gnocchi. Get the spinach or potato. Ask for whatever sauce you want - they mix and match the pastas no problem. Meatballs are great too

    This place is cash only - there is an ATM in the deli around the corner. The food is great, service is whatever, but be prepared to fall asleep after eating the gnocchi - It made me pass out. :)

    Compared to other italian joints in the west village I'm going to give this is a 5.5. You can get a better bang for your buck elsewhere. Don't bother with the tiramisù as it is overrated indeed.

    Great pasta at this romantic dinner date spot. Snag a table outside and enjoy this quite corner in the west village, away from it all, it actually feels like you traveled to Italy.

    I don't know why and how this place got 9.1. Maybe because it is on the cheap side. Pastas were mediocre. They did not take order until we asked and forgot the appetizers. However desserts were good.

    Don't leave without ordering the spinach gnocchi. It's one of the top 3 gnocchi dishes in the city!

    This is the West Village vibe that you want. Go here on a nice day, sit outside, take in the air, enjoy your meal, go stroll the West Village, grab a drink...but start it all here.

    Good pasta. If you're outside, try and sit on the Washington side, not the Christopher side to avoid the traffic fumes.

    Date night with my boyfriend! Very cozy and great food, cash only. Not too expensive. Sort of weird how they seat you, not many two tops. Be prepared to wait. Waiters nice but scatterbrained.
