Roberto was very friendly and we had a very lovely dinner. Sea Bass was very good. Close to our hotel. Brussel sprouts were amazing.

I’ve given this a 1 star because I was with a bitter taste in my mouth. The staff were lovely and the setting was nice. The food was ok but I’ve had better. What isn’t ok is the 20% compulsory service charge added to all...bills with a little note at the bottom of your bill saying no adjustments will be made! You are then taxed on the whole amount including the compulsory charge. The cheeky so and so’s then ask you for an additional generous tip! Are you kidding me?? I was not made aware of this before ordering, if I had been made aware I wouldn’t have gone into the place. Robbing your customers of their hard earned cash is not ok. There are money of other places to spend your cash DisgracefulMore

Ok food at best. 2 plates of pasta 1 plate of green salad leaf and a couple of cherry tomatoes 1 glass of Chardonnay total bill $113 The restaurant adds on a COMPULSORY 20% service charge then taxes you on this additional cost The cheeky...sods then ask for an additional Tip! WTF I was not made aware of this before ordering. My husband queried this charge and was told by the lovely server they won’t remove this it has to be paid. If was the server that actually pointed it out, she was highlighting the fact the restaurant is asking for a tip despite adding 20% service charge on. Avoid avoid avoid. No other place we visited added this extortionate charge on your our bills and we visited dozens of places. There are much better places to spend your hard earned dollars. Try Benito one in little Italy. Superb and they don’t rob you Shame on you.More

A great find on W46th in the heart of Theatreland. We had an early dinner in the late afternoon sun on Memorial Weekend Sunday. Sitting outside on the sidewalk was magic. The pasta was great and the service excellent.

This is one of those rare occasions where the service was better than the food. We loved the Maitre'd in his white suite and friendly demeanor. The food was middling - actually disappointing. Our waiter was attentive, though stretched thin. We will not return.

Food was good but, generally, average. Wait staff was attentive but not very good at getting the order right. My second plate arrived before my first and the waiter didn’t apologize… also, I am amazed at the enthusiasm for the table side tiramisu. IT DOES...NOT WORK! You end up with ladyfingers soaked in a very tasteless espresso (how can espresso be tasteless?). Any good tiramisu needs a nice consistency not a soggy mess.More

Manged to get a table outside quickly and it was a lovely day. My pasta was tasty, not what I was expecting but still tasty but only a hint of hazelnut - I thought they might have forgotten to add some ingredients at first. My...partner enjoyed his locale pizza. Pasta is priced between $26 - $30 which I felt was too high for what I had. We both had a beer which were around $9 each. A tea $5. We had desserts and opted for the tiramisu priced at $16 and cannoli. Really disappointed with the tiramisu but maybe this is down to what we're used to, we're from the UK, 3 lady fingers in a bowl, the waiter comes over and pours coffee on them and then scoops on mixed cream and chocolate chips. They automatically added 20% but then there was a screen to offer a fisher 20% tip so be aware of that and check before you automatically add a tip.More

We were craving some authentic Italian food and were lucky to find this place. It was fairly busy for a Thursday night. Good food and excellent service. The tiramisu at the table was very cool 😎.

This Hell's Kitchen restaurant, just off Times Square, is a rip-off tourist trap. The absolute worst Italian meal we've ever been served, and the worst service. We actually watched people sitting near us get up and leave mid-meal, we figured because the meal was so...awful, and though they tried, they couldn't summons any staff to complain about it so they just got up and left. The focaccia as a starter was nice, but the rest of our meal was pretty disgusting and totally over-priced. We ordered the veal scallopine which was just a few little thin slices of 'leather' (that we struggled to cut with a knife) in a bland sauce (inedible) and an awful equally bland overcooked pasta. In retrospect, we wish we had the courage to just get up and leave like the other people. Bottom line - avoid this tourist trap like the plague!More

Actually, I know their pasta is fresh and I substituted the squid ink linguine. They were absolutely eager to please. I’m sure they’d oblige any request for a side of pasta.
