Village Voice's Description

The pedigree is impressive--Keith McNally (Balthazar, Pastis) partners with Jody Williams (first Giorgione, then Gusto) to create an Italian bistro--but the results are mixed. Certain of Jody's signatures--octopus salad, fried artichokes--slip through intact, but pastas like bucatini with sardines and spaghetti amatriciana turn out bland in the first case, and too sweet and tomatoey in the second. Best on a first visit was a Sunday special of boiled meats--sausage, tongue, and chicken among them. Dishes are small enough that a three-course progression is a necessity. Special house wines, which come served in liter carafes, can be a great deal.

    Love the orata w herb oil on brunch menu

  • 2 little-known, mouthfilling red wines: Agricola's '04 Tintilia (See 'Molise; the tintilia grape yields dark-colored monsters); Allegrini’s ‘07 “Palazzo della Torre” (See 'Veneto'; a 'baby Amarone')

    Get the meatballs!

    Though perhaps not of the same caliber as his famous brasseries, McNally scores again with this venue’s solid menu, romantic ambiance, and quaintly charming décor. The weekend brunch is a solid hit.
