  1. It is family style Italian, good for what it is... slinging penne a la vodka... but Babbo it isn't. I have had some fun nights with large groups at Tony's, slightly better is Sambuca (but it also isn't Babbo... and it isn't in Times Sq) Both are better than Carmine's....(IMHO) If you want to have dinner with 10 people and keep the price down and be loud... go.

    1. As far as traditional, family-style Italian, it's fine. Just don't expect a transcendental culinary experience.

      1. I think Carmine's is better. I had one of the worst meals ever at Tony Dinapoli

        1. a friend says there is just limited seating and long waits for single people or 2 together. they are mainly set up for groups at family sized tables

          1. Not a good sign when the only basis for comparison, at similar level, is Carmines.
