Italian eatery with a downstairs club
Italian · East 50s · $$$
The Zagat Review
It's one “crazy” scene at this “pricey” Midtown Italian that rivals nearby sibling Tao as a “meet-and-mingle” hub for the “Botox-and-high-heels” set and the “expense-account suits” who love them; just bring “earplugs” and an appetite – the “garlicky” fare is “surprisingly good” – and then “go party” in the “thumping” downstairs club.

Excellent meal. Service, food, cleanliness, I have no complaints. Even our young children were made to feel welcome and cared for. We got the four cheese pizza thinking our kids would like it but it had crushed red pepper on it so we got to eat it and they were content with the charcuterie board appetizer and bread options. The beet salad was also excellent. I'd go back for sure.

This was the worse experience I've ever had in the restaurant/club. My friends and I had dinner upstairs for which we made RSVP and spent decent amount of money. In order to get into the club, we had to leave the restaurant and get into the line outside, which was not the worse part yet. Once we got in, we spent couple of hundreds $$ on drinks, etc. As any club, I assume, is crowded, there is decent amount of pushing. While our husband were waiting at the bar, my friend and I proceeded to the dance floor. My friend followed the waitress, I followed my friend, and I was followed by others. As someone pushed me, I leaned toward my friend and as you can imagine she lightly touched the waitress, NOTHING major. That's when within seconds upon waitress's request the security guy showed up claiming we need to immediately leave the premises as we cannot push the waitress. Now, we are intelligent women, no one pushed her in purpose and we apologized multiple times, but it seemed that the staff made up their mind way before it even happened. Leaving $20 drinks behind we were kicked out ruining the birthday night but most importantly unpleasant experience and attitude toward the guests.

I was here for a networking dinner. So I did not chance to look into the menu, as the entire course meal was fixed before by the host. But I believe that, it’s pretty expensive. The food was really good, mostly the salmon ! There were some roasted potato, which was also absolute yum ! So as the desserts! But the show stopper was the glass of white wine ! The environment was pretty good, and so as the people inside.
