“Great prix fixe theater lunch”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Great place to grab lunch before a matinee for a very reasonable price. A friend and I both enjoyed an appetizer and entree for $18.95. Coffee, tea or soda was also included. Prior to our first course, we were served bruschetta and a dish of olives with fresh bread.

Watch out if you order wine though. I ordered the red wine special that day. Silly me, I didn't ask the cost. I was surprised to find that it was $14 for the glass. So much for a modestly priced lunch before the show.

Still I would go back there again as the meal and service were both very good.

“Great food....Great value....Great service”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

The reviews were so favorable...we decided to try it for lunch. It was a great choice. Thank goodness for reviews..or we would probably never have known it existed. Looking around it appeared that many of the diners were local, some who seemed to be having a business luncheon.

We had a conversation with a woman that was seated at the next table. We agreed that it was a "find" the food, service and value would be hard to beat in New York City. Surprisingly enough, she was a Native New Yorker and it was her first time there. She was meeting someone and was looking for a location that would be convenient for both of them.So she too read the reviews and made her decision based on them.
Thanks TripAdvisor!

“Exactly as these reviewers say!”
Reviewed 22 February 2012

A little red door and a flight of stairs takes you into a warm, snug bar area with room for 6 bar stools. We arrived very early, having misjudged the distance to walk and they managed to seat us early which was a nice surprise. The restaurant area is simple with very clean lines which allows for ease of movement in the small restaurant.
The food was exceptional - delightful rich flavours, great bread, I had a starter from the specials of baked mozzarella in parma ham - yum. Wide Italian wine selection.

This was our special meal out on our trip: you could say our "not-valentines" as it was 16th Feb, so yes it wasn't cheap but we knew that when we booked. Oh and reservations are recommended!

“Good location, very good food”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Friendly service topped by a varied menu of well prepared dishes. You need a reservation as the restaurant is not large.Close to most Braodway theaters.
