  • The best fried zucchini I've ever had - make sure to ask for it w Marinara sauce. Chicken parm is good, lasagna is awesome.
  • Get the mozzarella... thing. So good.
  • Nice, romantic Italian place in the LES, great prices & fantastic menu of food/wine. Try The Plank
  • The polenta is served on an wood plank with a bolognese...they nailed it! Come check this place out.
  • Great place. Music they play is mad hipster. I feel like I'm in hipstaly (hipster Italy)
  • Italian-American comfort food with a nose to tail ethos good for group dining.
  • Really nice and romantic italian restaurant in downtown Manatthan, with a great wine selection! #barbera
  • Sause houses an open carvery that breaks down "whole hogs and steers" delivered every Thursday for the kitchen to turn out Italianate classics like homemade sausages, meatballs, and pastas.
  • Only amateurs try to eat here on a Friday or Saturday night
  • tasting table reco angel hair pasta with a fried egg and potatoes.

  • My mother-in-law says "the headbanger music is a little MUCH," and she is paying. @lolsam
  • Have the polenta on the plank. Absolutely amaze balls!
  • The Zucchini Limone dish is perfect! Pretend pasta made out of zucchini strands. Delish! W/ @lizmillernyc & @projectmattnyc
  • Get "The Plank" if you dare. Super filling but super yummy way to experience the ragu. Also burrata if they have as special - cheese ball as big as my head. For realz.
  • Great place! The seating area outside is great, there's always sun! Also it's nice to check out the hassle in the kitchen when sitting at the bar. Porcini Tortellini are really awesome
  • Try the Stringless Braciole
  • It's cash only peeps!
  • Prices are misleading. Smaller portions that what you might expect. Very tight seating.
  • The heart and soul of Italian cuisine is the ragu, repurposed under Chef Prisinzano's 4th Manhattan restaurant as SAUCE. Farm to table, nose to tail, seasonal, in-house butcher. Delicious + reasonable
