Simple but tasty and good quality. One of the last few hidden gems in old Tribeca. Check out the pizza and pair it with quality wines. The burrata’s are big and the deserts old school Italian.

Tried this place, while at the 9/11 memorial, about a 15 min walk, great personality, good to great food, small quaint, good traffic, would recommend, a little pricey.

Visited here on our last night in NYC. Sat in the window seat and watched New York go by while eating the best Italian food we've had since visiting Rome a few years ago. Daughter is still raving about her ravioli and the gelato she...More
