This is a restaurant where the food is so perfectly seasoned you don't even look for salt and pepper on the table. Entrees about $25-$36. Well worth it for a special night out. Only about 12 tables. The pastas are so perfectly created. The wait staff is worthy of note too. Parking garage available right next door (accepts Spot Hero , we paid $15) and across the street. Also right next door to the Met.

Chose this place to eat before going to an event at Met Museum, only a block away. Four of us, and we all enjoyed our meals. Squid ink pasta dish was excellent, tuna appetizer excellent, and the lump crab in pasta with saffron sauce - all terrific. We ate rather early before the crowd - service was prompt.

Just off Museum Mile, and a few steps from the Metropolitan Museum, this warm, elegant and cozy traditional Italian serves first class food in wonderful surroundings. Have been there several times and it has never disappointed. The carciofini with pistachios and the pasta with boar ragú are excellent. The service is outstanding: attentive without being overbearing. The wine list is good, but pricey. But let's face it, this is the high rent district and the prices have to reflect it. The luncheon prix fixe doesn't, so it's a good midday stop after a few hours of traipsing through the Met.

We enjoyed the $29 Prix Fixe menu in the afternoon after a fabulous morning at the Met. Delicious Italian fare. Well worth it.

Overpriced,claustrophobic,rude service. With all the exceptional restaurants within a five minute walk this is the last place you should go.
