    Very cozy and romantic atmosphere. Gnocchi was as really delicious as its famous reputation, and the scampi was amazingly fresh and tasty.

    A romantic and intimate setting with an incredible wine list, making it the ultimate date spot. The gnocchi here is to die for! Be sure to also come for brunch and get the Contadina frittata.

    The gnocchi is a MUST have. Also the chocolate mousse is pretty good. Be sure to sit in the back garden. Great place for sure.

    Nice decor, back patio is cute. Cavatelli fior di pesto was good, pasta was very soft. Had our Lambrusco in bowls which was interesting. Good for dates.

    The section in the back is all glass and has stunning light. Feels like you're in a small Italian village far away from Manhattan! And the food and wine was delicious (get the Chianti Classico!!).

    So much truffle *drool* on the menu. Gnocchi was incredible. Try and get seated in the garden at the back if you can - feels like you're in West Village, not UES.

    It's not stellar but a good local spot for a group. It's fairly priced and consistent.

    Mediocre food and horrendous service. Don't be fooled by average entrees simply swimming in truffle oil.

    The brodetto (Italian fish stew) is very good. Filled with scallops shrimp and good fish in a tasty red base.

    Back patio is perfect for date night. Try the calamri app and the almond tart for dessert, you wont be sorry!

    We only had wine & cheese, which was very good & the food smelled terrific. Low rating is because our waiter disappeared mid-service & never returned.

    Grilled calamari was delicious. A wide array or cheese and charcuterie, a vast selection of fairly priced wine by the glass.

    Dim lighting, romantic atmosphere... Wonderful wine list. Try the red beet fingerling gnocchi in the gorgonzola sauce, it's just divine!!

    There's no better way to enjoy Lambrusco than by drinking it out of a big ceramic bowl! Mmmm!
