  • Food took forever. Left very uninspired.

  • That Italian girl that seats people has a weiner.
  • The whole grilled artichoke is automatic, supersonic, hypnotic, funky, fresh.
  • The Cioppino is one of the best seafood meals I've ever had.
  • My favorite italian place in the city so far - try the pyramid pasta, gnocchi, and any of their delicious olive oils and/or vinegars!
  • Don't miss the delicious pastas and vegetables! We love the Autumn Veggie Risotto and the Bittersweet Molten Chocolate Cake. Check our review for the full scoop!
  • Get the four course tasting menu! Only $48 and you can try so many items!
  • Don't eat prior to your dinner if you decide to do the 4 course tasting!! It's worth the money but make room for it :)
  • Pyramid Pasta!!!
  • If you make it to Mercato don't miss out on the whole grilled artichoke with citrus aioli or the crispy-skinned striped bass.
  • Cash Only BYOB. Try and the Filet with Mashed Potatos and Brussel Sprouts (w/Bacon). Tremendous Dish.
  • BYOB but cash only!
  • Get the Pyramid Pasta!
  • BYOB for the win. Also, food was amazing.
  • This place has some of the best pasta that I've eaten. They have a little more variety compared to Little Nonnas. BYOB, so make sure you get your booze. This place is cash only, so hit the ATM.
  • Artichoke, any of the pastas, all worth it. But be prepared to wait -- like an hour, even with a reservation.
