My wife and I stopped here for lunch after viewing the Frick Collection. We did not have reservations but were able to be seated. I ordered the Pappardelle, and my wife enjoyed the lunch Branzino special. Both were good!

This stylish Italian restaurant has a large selection of well executed Italian fare. The waiter will recite the specials and your head will spin. Everything is fresh with lots of season delicacies like white or black truffles. I stick with the pastas which are expensive...More
