    Very expensive for the quality of the food. They rise the prices moving here just Because the interiorism not the food quality.

    Great price and decor but the food falls short. Neither authentic nor classic Italian-American. Undercooked pasta (not al dente) but their tomato sauce was actually pretty good.

    Got the antipasto misto, ravioli with bolegnese and veal scallopine - all were delicious. My only complaint was the courses came out quickly - order slowly if you don't want to eat dinner in 40 min!

    Old school Italian at old school prices! Hands down fav dinner spot in Chelsea. Try the gnocchi or the black fettuccini (if they have it as a special).

    Move your bread close to the candles so they catch on fire and strike up conversation with your neighbors.
