This is a real italian experience, from the fantastic pastas to the well decorated Italian style restaurant. Located next to the Bowery hotel you can not see from the street how nice it is inside. Very good service and food overall.

We had brunch here twice. Our favorite item was the polenta with exotic mushrooms. So yummy! The brunch food was tasty and a table on the sidewalk allowed for some celebrity sitings. Good spot especially since we were staying next door at the Bowery.

Delicious, Italian comfort food. Pizza and pasta are amazing. For breakfast the pizza oven bakes your eggs, brilliant!

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
