Foursquare Tips

  • Not really a tip, but I once watched two blind men on a date both order the soft-shell crab special here. Sadly, I had to leave before I could see how that went down.
  • The food !!! Best in the business !!! And the bathrooms...... Really ??? Outstanding!!!
  • Ask for Chad, sit outside, enjoy the pee meal bread and homemade "pesto."
  • Best restaurant on 17th
  • Food was good although a little small on the serving size. Plan on getting a few courses if you are hungry. Front window seat on second floor was nice and cozy. Service was good. Ran out of tea.
  • All pasta is made in house and menu changes depending on season and what local market has to offer.
  • If you get off late and need a few plus a relaxing spot this is the place! The bartender is nice and knows how to make a drink!

  • If you like tuna, definitely start with the tartare. I loved the gnocchi with wild roasted boar.
  • Really good vegetarian options.
  • Awesome wild mushroom risotto!
  • Italian with a side of complaintsDespite its location and cheery atmosphere, the service does not come with a smile and many think the food tends to be overpriced.

  • The food is amazing and the service impeccable. If you like a manhattan, try the Moma.
  • Sunday is half priced wine bottles.decent modern italian and creative
  • Short rib ravioli is a bit bitter, but lobster tagliarini is amazing
