  • Kerry C.Have been here 4 times in 2 years and have to make myself try other places. Slowly working my way through the menu and each time I find a new favorite. Gnocchi is my latest :-)

    55555 by Kerry C.

  • Sofia P.I flock to this cozy Italian basement on the reg for their unbelievable short rib gnocchi! Melting chocolate cake for dessert of course.

    55555 by Sofia P.

  • Adam S.Bolognese was perhaps the best I've ever had. Gnocchi and short ribs was equally delicious, and so tender.

    55555 by Adam S.

  • Christina L.Cavatelle app was really rich and filling - enough for me as a main course

    55555 by Christina L.

  • Dudley S.Tiny, cute, great value

    55555 by Dudley S.

  • Drew M.The cavatelle was absolutely amazing. Perfect flavor. For an appetizer, it was a fairly large portion so take that in mind when ordering your meal. Get this!!

    55555 by Drew M.

  • Kristine G.The Spagetti and Meatballs is ALWAYS good, my personal fav is Bolognese: House cut tagliatelle pasta, San Marzano tomatoes, Lamb, Pork, Beef

    55555 by Kristine G.

  • Ashish PFood was great but service could be better. A lot of waiting to get a order in.

  • Margot W.I'm really fond of the Italian cuisine, but I can hardly believe there's an Italian cook working at this place: I ordered risotto and got a soup with a hint of risotto. Will not recommend this place.

    33333 by Margot W.

  • Mateus d.Garlic Soup is Excellent ! Spaguetti with meatballs as well, very well made, a bit on the spicy side.The banana cake dessert is good, but not unforgetable. Wine selection could be better

    55555 by Mateus d.

  • Hannah B.Chicken Parm is amazing!

    55555 by Hannah B.

  • Holly C.The beef tenderloin with risotto and asparagus was quite delicious! Leave plenty of room for dessert because the melting chocolate cake is to die for!

    55555 by Holly C.

  • Sammy W.Fantastic fondue and Fra Diavolo. No cocktails, though (why do restaurants do that?), so grab a pre-dinner drink @ the Red Hat or 21st Amendment.

    55555 by Sammy W.

  • Jared R.Absolutely delicious. Get the tenderloin with risotto. So good! Don't even get me started with the melting chocolate cake.

    55555 by Jared R.

    55555 by Aaron W.

    55555 by Susan R.
