Foursquare Tips

  • 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!
