nice atmosphere, very cramped but this did not bother us. It is small and always fully booked.
We didnt make a reservation, we turned up and the owner said we can have a drink next door and he will call us over when our table is ready. 20 mins later we were called and we were able to take our drinks with us to the restaurant. we had the dough balls with cheese and shrimp and chicken starters and the lasagne and ravioli for mains. Our bill was 42 dollars which was very cheap for manhattan. The restaurant is in a very quite street near soho/noho area (not far from china town). You could easily miss it.
The food was very tasty although small portions, it was enough for us to be full and finish all of it. (we usually only manage mains).
I would highly reccommend this place.
