Good pasta dishes, and salads. Very friendly and accomodating staff. I would recommend sitting in the rear of the restaurant as the front near the bar is somewhat noisy.

This restaurant was opposite our hotel (The Westin), so we had to give it a try. We had not booked so we were pleased they managed to fit 4 of us in on a busy Saturday evening. The downside of that was that our table was not the best and we had long waits for the food. It's basically Italian... More

We ordered sides to go with our mains but they arrived after we had finished so they were sent back. I also organised a celebration cake... More

We hadn’t booked and called to see if there was availability. Strange greeting as the younger gentlemen asking the man who appeared to be the manager asked if there was anything. He promptly put his hand across his throat mimicking a cutting action. At this point we were about to turn a foot and leave, obviously seeing y facial reaction... More

We ate there pre-theatre on 11 November having read good reviews. Nice looking place and handy location. Pleasant and helpful servers. The Fritto Misti was hugely over-cooked, see below, and the prawns and calamari were very very dry. The batter was dry and horrid. The Bianca Pizza, see below, looked like a 10 year olds half-cooked home kitchen creation, not... More

Came here for both a business lunch and a personal dinner. Both times the food and service were outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant and It's very convenient to Grand Central.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
