    I went there after the new years. Gorgeous space, but I wasn't a big fan of the off-handed snobbish service and the boisterous crowd on the weekend.

    I had the Margherita and shared some calamari and cold cuts for appetizer. I liked the pie crust but for me it was under-seasoned and...arh, wet toppings!

    My companions who ordered the pastas (bolognese got high marks) seemed to enjoy the meal more than I did.

    All in all, it was not bad, but I'd prefer strada 241 any day.

      Went last night and have to agree the place is beautiful..so are the waitresses! Was with a friend of the owner so service could not have been more attentive. Shared a bunch of dishes. Housemade meatballs, agnolotti, a pizza diablo and the bone in filet served sliced, with roasted potaoes and veggies. Have to say I enjoyed each dish, however needed two bottles of water throughtout the night as I slept, so the food was really salty. For a snowy Wednesday the place was hopping. Would definetely return..especailly for the pizza and pasta.

      Wanted to check in here. Has anyone been lately and if so, how is the food? I am going to a Second City show, and obviously it's convenient, but I don't want to bother with it if it's really not great food. Any tips?

        I was at the closing party of the Italian Film festival and these guys had a HUGE roast pig (porchetta). It was delicious! They should do a night at the restaurant where they serve this. I didn't realize it is a pretty new spot. Based on the food that they had at the party I would go and check them out. Anyone else been since earlier this year?
