    Whatever you do, get the baked ricotta. Pizza is great. Mussels good too. We estimated $50k worth of whiskey on wall - whatchoo think?

    Burgers only served after midnight & people are clamoring to get in. Exclusive, thin, griddled patty comes with white cheddar, onions, and salt. There's one going to every single table after midnight.

    Delicious thin crust pizza, wonderful service, and you can't go wrong with a $30ish bottle of lambrusco.

  • Butheina H.

    Try the all beef meatballs - amazing flavor! Skip the mozerella & heirloom tomatoes salad and ceviche, not exciting. Pizzas can be too salty

    Meat ravioli is awesome. Although I feel icky saying "meat ravioli" to anyone. But seriously. It's awesome. If you're really hungry and a big eater - you'll have to get a side.

    Not the best pizza in NY, but pretty damn good. The chili oil takes it up another notch. The meats are better than the pizza.
