We ordered the appetizer special of goat cheese with smoked salmon that came with a side salad. We ordered two for three people and it was a... More

The best part was that the food was excellent. including the appetizer plus my dinner of pumpkin Ravioli. We had reservations and were seated quickly. The worst part was that However, it took about almost 30 minutes for a waiter to take our order. We then got drinks and ordered food immediately since there was little time to eat before... More

On our way from The 9/11 Memorial to the Intrepid it was time for lunch! New York has so many restaurants that it's very easy to get choice panic! After looking at a few places I played safe and went for Italian. You can't beat a good plate of pasta if you're walking a lot! It wasn't crowded, but it... More

We walked in without a reservation - about 6:15 PM. We were seated in a long row of tables for 2 - hardly any room for elbows. The menu was good, but we both found the pasta to be doughy...it was fresh but heavy. We ate quickly because it was not comfortable sitting so close to others. Other patrons came... More

Excellent food. Try the $29.95 3-course prie fixe menu--Caesar salad, Chicken Parmigiana and cheese cake for me, and worth more than that. We ate outside--inside is a bit loud, but it was a beautiful night and we took advantage of it. Highly recommended.

We found this restaurant just wandering around, just fancied Italian and had a great meal, in lovely surroundings. The service was good and the food really tasty. Fixed price menu was really good value.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
