      i try to eat there 5 or 6 times a year. it's always really good, and i usually dont like spending that much money for italian food. (i find the difference between $10 and $25 dollar pasta isnt that great)

      anyway, i highly recommend it. one of the few places in town where i will let the waiters make suggestions.

        I only went there once, very bad service, noisy, people using cell phones and smoking cigars next to me.
        Very expensive for the type of service and food. NY has so many outstanding Italian restaurents why bother with this one. People watching!
