Foursquare Tips

  • My favorite Italian neighborhood joint in NY. Best dish on the menu: spaghetti alla chitarra -- it does not get better than this.
  • Spinach gnocchi in Gorgonzola sauce is amazing!!
  • Food is amazing - The best gnocchi I've ever had. Spaghetti and chicken melanaise were both fantastic as well. But it's a hassle - cash only, middle of nowhere, always a wait.
  • Good authentic Italian food in a cozy atmosphere. Definitely try the spinach gnocchi, just remember that it's cash only!
  • There is only one entree you should be considering off their handwritten menu: the spinach gnocchi. Every bite left me speechless.
  • Order the spinach gnocchi with fresh tomato sauce.
  • if you are in the mood for dessert get the panna cota it's lovely
  • Get the spinach gnocchi or the spaghetti! Also, cash only.
  • The spaghetti with fresh tomato, basil & mozzarella is an absolute revelation.
  • Spinach Gorgonzola gnocchi is out of this world good. Pick a day when the weather is great and sit outside. Wine carafes are affordable and the location is perfect for a little people-watching. #CPL8
