Another good choice on Thompson St. for a delicious pasta dinner, if Pino's is too crowded. : ) Very good service, as well.

Dear X2071GYandrewc, Thank you for leaving what we find to be a 'shamfully (sic)' and somewhat racist review! 'A busload of 20 Asians'? ... or perhaps 20 customers, just like you? -- See, we don't feel it necessary to identify people by what nationality they...More
