  1. I really like this place - better to wait until the weather improves so you can sit in the back garden. The indoor space is a little small. The food is excellent and reasonable.

    1. i really liked it. get the gnocco appetizer (kind of like a zeppole, sans powdered sugar, with prosciutto and the like). the specials were all really appealing. service was nice. backroom is spacious and comfortable. one of the better EV italians.

      1. the gorgonzola pasta is definitely the best thing on the menu - it is AMAZING.

        1. I went there after reading some posts on this board praising it as being one of the best of the cheap East Village Italians, even better than Frank.

          I did enjoy it - the Gnocco appetizer was great - and its definitely worth trying. I wouldn't put it in Frank's category, though.

            sorry to disagree.... bit the food there is not good. the ambiance is nice and some of the wait staff are charming- others not so much, but that's all right. The garden is nice the prices are fine, but teh food just is not very good. it's fine- not fresh and not great ingredients. the garden is a nice space, though, and the mood is festive. but don't go for the food.
