This is definitely an upscale Italian restaurant. The food is amazing. Service was a big deal, and my waiter was very attentive and friendly. Good spot for a date night!

Get a reservation to this exclusive restaurant and be sure to be really dress up! This italian fancy and elegant restaurant holds great personalities having dinner or lunch here every day, but any one can get a table and enjoy the amazing gnoquis, salmon salad, biscotis and wine reserves.

This is the first place I head for dinner whenever I hit New York. It's truly old school, very small and traditionally decorated, a sort of dense, warm, dark environment. The restaurant has two rooms: the lower, larger room, and a smaller space up a few stairs, with Italian vistas painted on the walls. The staff is amazingly attentive, just like in a good restaurant in Italy. They're from Sorrento, in the Naples area, and their Southern cooking is delightful, authentic, rich, filling. During the lunch period, the entire lower dining room is filled to capacity by Donald Trump and Bill Gates-types in pin-striped suits, even the women. Very formal business lunch atmosphere. If you wander in in your jeans and tshirt, you'll be seated in the upper dining room where the suits don't have to look at you. The stuffiness during the day disappears at night, when it is very much a pre-theater place. Much more relaxed, very romantic, very expensive. Dress up a little. I can hardly write about the food without drooling. A perfect meal would start with fried calamari and artichokes... In summer, there's a very nice outside patio area.
