The Zagat Review
“Still a bastion of fine Italian dining” , this Village “star” in the Batali-Bastianich firmament continues to “impress” with “phenomenal” pastas and other “exceptional” dishes delivered by a “polished” team in “warm” (if “boisterous” ) carriage house digs; yes, it’s “a pain to get a table” and tabs run “high” , but to most the “always-spot-on” experience is “well worth it.”

While Mario is regrettably missing from his own founding, so far the management has kept most of it together. Watch out for heavy red pepper based seasoning or liquids added to some of the pasta dishes, as now the menu doesn't list everything. Also, if you are allergic to anything, while they will be careful to ask the kitchen staff, most of the wait staff no longer is so familiar with the dishes that they already know, so you have to ask about every dish you are ordering. Therefore the 4 star down from 5 as it used to be. Food quality still top notch, ingredients all top flight. Some you can buy and take home, some you can get at Eataly downtown.

What can you expect from Joe bastianich. Read his book and went directly. Great food, the attention will make you feel like a president. Went for a date and is a great place to go. You need a reservation don’t trick yourself. Great wine list!

Pasta is excellent, if pricey. Service is very good. Wine selection is excellent. THE MUSIC IS DEAFENING. Otherwise, this would be a 4-Star rating. Read the reviews, Mario. Your customers are trying to tell you something. Get a different, more appropriate soundtrack and turn the volume down.
