Tips

  • Anything with artichokes will be amazing!
  • Get the veal, amazing.
  • This neighborhood BYOB has a cool olive oil list and some serious artisan cheeses.
  • Food took forever. Left very uninspired.
  • the Pyramid pasta is off the hook. start with the Artichoke, very tasty.
  • 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!
  • It's the Italian/New American bistro's attention to detail, visible in the exquisite artisanal cheese plate, the seared scallops, whole grilled artichoke, and the homemade triangle-shaped pasta.
  • Three course $35 tasting menu on Monday and Tuesday night for dinner
  • Artichoke and octopus to start... short rib ragu with polenta is rich enough for two!
  • Small intimate dinner spot but great little BYO in the summer especially!
