    Bug in water. Seated us then moved us because he made a mistake. Table was for an 8pm reservation. Not too long after he seated another couple (white) at said table which was before 8pm. Never again

    The rigatoni al ragù napoletano is flavorful and hearty, but feel free to skip the underwhelming caprese.

    Rudest hostess I've ever had. Told us "I did you a favor" by letting us eat here even though we had a reservation. Never had a worse hosting experience. Never coming back. It's a shame.

    Super cute, inexpensive, large portions & not too busy on a Fri. night. What's not to like? The truffle ravioli was delish & gelato could feed 4. I'll def be back to try some other tasty menu items!

    Lots of better and just as well-priced Italian in TriBeCa - every dish was massive and a mess on the plate. Specials were ill-conceived and actually, kind of disgusting.
