    Great spot for a Sunday Italian meal on the lower east side. Try the zucchini matchsticks as an app and get the braciole for dinner

    Sehr gute Pasta. Leider Musik etwas zu laut und Tischaufstellung unpraktisch (Tische in Reihen, sehr eng).

    You can order from the full dinner menu at the bar and sometimes get seated there a lot faster than for a table. Really delicious!

    Great food and wine, outdoor seating is nice in the summer. Their taste in music is a bit questionable tho.

    One of my favorite restaurants in the city. Order the grilled octopus salad as a starter and split the polenta for your main. If they have the burrata, order that too.

    Killer playlist and solid wine selection. Food is on point as well. You could get the polenta plank for presentation alone but it also happens to be damn tasty.

    meh. pasta came out shockingly fast and tasted like it was cooked hours ago but microwaved seconds after we ordered... so Occam's razor?

    The spaghetti and meatballs here are amazing! Don't get the burrata & rigatoni special though...$27 for a bowl of noodles and cheese with olive oil is not worth it.

    Delicious, casual, inexpensive Italian spot. Outdoor seating. Vegetarian friendly. Loved the cavatelli. For added richness go for the add'l dollop of ricotta. Whoa.

    the burrata comes in on thursdays and sells out quickly. probably related to the fact that you can usually find me at the bar pushing it. don't miss out.

    The chicken parm is out of this world. Best gravy in NYC (counting my mom's!). Skip the polenta/bolognese plank though... It's basically a slop poured on some wood and is missing substance.

    If you're salt-sensitive, don't get the grass-fed bolognese sauce, garlic bread, or the Grandmother's tomato gravy. It's super-salty!
