Service
 
“Exceptional pastas” come out of the “tiniest of open kitchens” at this “energetic” West Village Italian, where a “fun” chef’s counter gives “lucky” diners a glimpse of the “show” ; “small” dimensions result in waits, but you can always pass the time in its adjacent wine bar, Anfora.

It's one the best Italian restaurants in Manhattan, best atmosphere, and people you will ever meet in your life. You owe it to yourself to go there even if it's just one time in your life.

We ate at he bar and the bartender was very nice and friendly. The food was tasty and the portion size was right for us, though a bit small for the price.

This restaurant deserves all the praise it is capable of handling. The menu is to the point and the food? Let's just say that they have broken my dismay towards properly prepared octopus till the end of my days. Drink selection from wine to whiskey is staggering. Of course, my favorite Lagavulin Single Malt is always available as well as Bulleit Bourbon and of course, Macallan. Prices are not low but could be way higher for a place of this quality. Food will even be prepared right in front of your eyes if you wish. Have not been here? You have not experienced great.
