Description

Village Voice's Description

This might just be the best Italian restaurant currently operating in the city, but don't expect food of the most traditional sort. Familiar recipes are often zapped with one unexpected ingredient (like cocoa nibs with the pork loin);the miracle is that it always seems to work. The noodle-free raviolis called gnudi are also spectacular, lumps of creamy ricotta and baby spinach topped with pecorino and bathed in butter and sage. And don't ignore the wine list, which has some amazing bottles even at the lower end.

    This restaurant is our Italian neighbor on Clinton Street. Everything is amazing, particularly the pastas and desserts. They also have a great wine list.-Wylie Dufresne, Top Chef

  • A very good red at an attractive price…Macri’s Aglianico from Campania. In Taurasi, the aglianico grape yields big wines with generous blackberry fruit and soft tannins. Salute! agwine.com

    #5 - IWalked NYC's Top 10 Italian Restaurants. Popular selection for Time Out Magazine that successfully blends intimacy with modern décor. Dimly lit dining room is ultimate romantic experience.

    The fresh ricotta is excellent! Love the vibe here, feels like I'm back in Italy
