  • Lidia Bastianich is genius...she even adds apples to her sauce. Amazing!
  • i could go there, sit at the tiny bar and eat my favorite carpaccio di pesce almost every single day...
  • #2 - IWalked NYC's Top 10 Italian Restaurants. Located in multi-level former townhouse. Exhaustive wine list. Specializes in dishes reminiscent of Northern Italy. Intimate setting since 1981.<LINK>
  • The best is the rich duck and mushroom pappardelle. All of the dishes are carefully crafted, and unlike most high-class, traditional-fare restaurants, gluten/dairy free options abound.
  • Be daring. Try the octopus!
  • The chicken liver pate is absolutely incredible.
  • One of the best Italian places in the city...everything tastes delicious! Enjoy! Btw, the Negroni is sinfull!
  • Amazing chicken liver pate and pear &cheese ravioli!!! Go for them!
  • Been here twice. Rankings? Pear ravioli > spicy, braised tripe > bacon wrapped quail > octopus
  • The candele pasta and the branzino are always excellent!!
  • Chef Fortunato Nicotra delivers Italian entrees that pay homage to founder Lidia Bastianichs roots. Especially stunning are the sauces laced with exotic ingredients like fennel pollen.
  • Everything here was AMAZING! but definitely have the octopus to start and the il cacio e pere pasta for an entree. You won't be disappointed!
  • sit at the bar, ask for the beer menu, it's creative, then try the quinoa as an appetizer - delicious
  • Classic uptown NYC septuagenarian vibes. Known for their pastas
  • Crudo is the best!
  • Old school Italian. Not very good and pretty over seasoned.
  • Artichokes. Pasta. Italian amazing wines. So happy to be French living in San Francisco and finding the taste and atmosphere of casual elegance and perfectly cooked Italian food. Go !
  • Delicious
