The food is ample and delicious. The service is friendly and usually prompt. The early bird fixed price dinner is the best deal in the LES

We remember this place from years ago and when our favorite Italian restaurant, Bianca, closed we thought about trying it again.
Not bad, not so good, either. The service is very friendly and prompt. The food is just average, though my husband enjoyed his brook trout. My lasagna was so so ( miss the bechamel). So we continue to seek another place in the neighborhood.

We have been to this lower east side restaurant in, well, decades. On a recent theatre visit on 4th st, we went next door and gave it a shot. Wow, has it changed. And for the better. New, friendly decor. great Italian food and reasonably priced. Good serve. Excellent wine list. We'll be back.

The location has a great vibe and the service was mostly good, but for a seafood place, some of the basic dishes were not great. The mussels, for example, were very dried out and came with a white wine sauce that had hints of being prepared with rancid ingredients. However, the chicken marsala was really good, and the homemade pasta dishes were great.

Note: They ONLY take American Express or cash. This makes it incredibly inconvenient.

Excellent traditional Italian at moderate prices with an early bird that can't be beat ! Excellent salad, soup, main dish, pasta and glass of wine for $15.95. Lovely backyard for warm days and cozy room with fireplace for winter days. A New York gem
