Some of the best Italian food I've had in NYC. The food we tried ranged from simple (grilled fish), to traditional (meatballs, chicken parm), to creative (spicy shrimp alla vodka). All great and delivered with stellar service. My only bit of constructive criticism is that...More

First try. Appetizers, such as the burratta and the grilled octopus were superb. The chicken parm and veal capriciosa, OK but uninspired. The rigatoni with the Sunday sauce and Zuppa de Pesce were absolutely superb ! Long wait for the main offset by complimentary dessert...More

Love the place. It's small and usually quiet. Great for couples. Food is amazing! Chef Jason Zukus from the show Chopped is the chef/owner. The food is always fresh and the coffee and donut dessert is fabulous. The donut is filled with canole cream. Definitely...More

We enjoy dinners here, but the new "brunch" needs tweaking. Normally, brunch means all-inclusive. Here, it's all ala carte, from the syrupy Mimosas to the pre-meal basket of muffins or whatever. Aside from the FANTASTIC pancakes, the food was mediocre. The omelet was typical diner...More

Tazzina Started really well! The restaurant was full, but my reservation via OpenTable was saved and we sat right away. Food was really good, even though it took a while to be served. But the initial 2 wines bottles that I chose from the menu...More

Met cousins for dinner. Seated on time. Waitress was fabulous as was the food. Everyone loved their dish-bronzino and chicken scapariello were best ever. Room was a little noisy but we were in a corner and noise not bad.
