Their eggplant rollatini is one of the greatest: eggplant fried either with crumbs or without, rolled around snow-white ricotta cheese, smothered in tomato sauce, then mantled in mozzarella.

The avocado tomato bruschetta special is astounding. When it's not a special they hide it on the separate vegan menu. Order it, you won't be sorry!

Beware it's a cash only establishment but they do have a ATM available.

Old school NYC italian joint, delicious chicken parm, super friendly staff, highly recommended.

I feel that no matter how good the food and service is somewhere, it's unforgivable and tasteless to be cash only and put an ATM in your restaurant.

Leaving a second tip on this. If you like olive garden you will be impressed.

Wow. I think overrated is an understatement. Garlic bread was something my baby cousin could make. Service sucked. PASS

Really digging the #vegan menu. The eggplant parm is awesome and made with daiya cheese! And don't forget to get the cannoli!

They have a second, vegan menu!

The vegan menu is amazing. The Seitan Alla Rosa is a must-eat. And finish off with a vegan canoli. One of the best restaurants in NYC.

Great vegan menu!!!

The perfect old school Italian, still at reasonable prices. Waiters are always so nice, and it has a full vegan menu in addition to traditional

Great gluten-free pasta choice and salads. Very old school and authentic. Should be fun for Boardwalk Empire fans (they've shot the series in the resto).

Vegan bruschetta is a must! I'm not vegan but I will definitely be back for it! Serious Italian food, don't forget to try their famous veal meatballs!

They don't take credit and their ATM conveniently will only dispense $40 per transaction/fee. ATM is also frequently out of service. Walking to bank to get cash for takeout means your food gets cold.
