We stumbled upon this restaurant after doing a busy 6 hour tour of New York. We were tired and very hungry. We did not want to eat in the large chains like hard rock . The restaurant was full we got the last two window seats. My husband ate the Stromboli. Which was like a pizza inside a bread roll he thought it was delicious. It was a huge portion no starters or desserts were required. I had the spaghetti and meatballs which again was a large portion . The best thing however was the red wine montepulciano. It was delicious expensive at 15 dollars a glass but worth it. We found the whole experience very authentic Italian and delicios after a busy day

Our Uber driver recommended this place and he was spot on! There are so many Italian places and pizza joints to choose from in NYC! We ate there but you can get “slices” to go! Their take-out business is busy and fast, but you can’t get slices if you dine in. Only to go! We ordered a pizza and it was wonderful, perfect crust, cheesy, lots of pepperoni! Others had salads and pasta and it all looked good. The restaurant is cozy and cute. It looks like they decorated for Christmas and never took down the lights and decorations but it works and makes it happy and fun inside. I’d highly recommend this place if you’re in this area, I can’t wait to go back!

I’ve come to this place several times over the years when traveling to NYC. Great location in theater district. This time we had pepperoni and sliced meatball thin crust pizza and it was delicious. Just 2 of us eating so we got X-small and it was plenty of food, especially when we added a desert cannoli at the end, also very tasty.

My son and I decided to try out this Italian restaurant. We ordered Pizza Margerite with three added toppings and two beers. We loved the pizza, the crust was thin and crusty, toppings were plentiful and it was piping hot. Delicious.
But we received a shock when we saw how much they charge for a bottle of beer, a whopping $ 10.00. We know we are in N.Y, but come on... that’s ridiculous.
