    Great Italian food, friendly staff BUT careful with the bartenders - Jared poured us another round without asking and charged us for it. He was a really friendly guy but that was not cool.

    Black linguini and the snapper are great. The waitress isn't!

    Spaghetti and meatballs are a Monday must have. Their house Cabernet is a steal at happy hour

    The meatballs are great here as is the eggplant Parmesan. The service is always attentive and friendly and they have a great happy hour, $5 glasses of wine and $5 plates. Wonderful neighborhood spot

    The eggplant parmesan is delicious. Spicy marina should be bottled and sold and husband loved the stolen meatballs and tortellini w/ pancetta and cheese. YUM!

    People rave about the meatballs but it's a bit overrated. Sauce was good but nothing crazy. Good food but nothing to run back to.

    Stolen meatballs are crispy an delicious. Gnocchi in marinara is a standout and pretty filling. Even the bread is really good!

    WARNING: the 2 for 1 Happy Hour is per person. So don't think two of you can come and get a glass each. You'll both be drinking two glasses.

    This place is solid - great bartenders, food is good, good wine list - makes for a easy weeknight date place.

    I had the spaghetti and meatballs, my friend had the lobster ravioli. Both were delicious. Pretty large portions. Service was very attentive. Appears to be very kid friendly too

    Great addition to the UWS. Unique atmosphere that combines fine wine, drinks and eats with TVs to watch sports. Super attentive and fun staff.

    Order the dinner special with chicken meatballs, arrabiata sauce and wheat spaghetti. The thin crust Sicilian pizza is also delicious!

    Staff friendly; kitchen couldn't be slower; don't bother with the veggie meatballs! NOT kid friendly. A huge disappointing predecessor to Pinch n ' Smac
