We went here for our anniversary dinner, it was so worth waiting in line at 530 for the daily resey. I arrived in line about 5:10, I was the eighth person in line. All the dining options were available t me. I chose a 9:30 slot, but they called me at 8:45 and told me not to come until 10:15. This is good bc if you arrive earlier, they won't let you in. Dinner was five courses. guess it doesn't really matter what I had, since the menu changes daily (I have forgotten anyways). BUt I remember it being ALL GOOD, every course. There was even a clam noodle course that I was scared of, Im not a seafood person, and it didn't taste sea-y at all. I'd glady have paid more than the $50 they charge for a meal that goos. My only complaint is, the portions are kind of small. But, if you come with more people, they give you extra (at least that's what it seemed like when observing the other tables) ---------- Lunch review Before yesterday, I thought the definition of a sandwich was a slice of meat between two pieces of bread. After yesterday, I realize the definition of a sandwich is Torrisi's chicken parm. The meat was both tender and juicy. The cheese:sauce ratio was absolutely perfect, and I never knew that ratio existed before this sandwich. We also got the turkey sandwich, which would've been good on its own, but it was on the unfortunate position of succeeding the chicken parm. I thoroughly enjoyed the coffee cake as well. The downside is, it's a little on the expensive side. I spent 40 on two drinks, 2 sandwiches, one side, and a dessert. I've been reading that the lunch has nothing on the dinner, I will definitely be back for it.

One of downtown's best tasting menus in a cozy (tiny), charming NoLita space. The chef-selected menu for the day is listed on a big chalk-board. Just settle in and let them take you through their culinary journey. Great special occasion place if you like the out-of-the way, obscure and expect dining of the highest order. Tasting only so go prepared for that experience. Staff attentive and

Family was in town. I was sick. Many voices in my head kept telling me to call in. Don't go. It's better to sleep. However i shut those voices up, downed some Advil and out the door I went. Boy oh boy, was I glad I did. This was one of the finest Italian meals I've eaten in my life. No question about it. Like so many others have said, the mozzarella is fantastic. My seat had a great view of the guy making it, which was cool. But yeah. Amazing. After that might have been (I wish I had written down the menu) a bean salad. It had a nice grilled taste in every bite. A total change up from the mozzarella. Then came the fluke. Usually carpaccio is a favorite appetizer of mine, but the fluke was merely average to good. Perhaps it was a bit too fishy or not seasoned very well. However, the best antipasta was saved for last, and that was the rabbit terrine. My word was it tasty. It was served with a foie emulsion and bitter cherries which together combined for a near perfect bite. Wow. And if that wasn't enough, the gnocchi was on the same level. Despite being two-bite pieces, they were pillowy soft. And the goat cheese sauce wasn't overpowering or too goaty. Super smooth. And then! Devil's Chicken. Perfectly tender chicken. Crispy skin. A hint of kick (hence the devil) made this fantastic. Not quite as big as you'd think from an "entreé" but with everything we'd had, it was just fine. Maybe they should call it the meat course, or something cool and Italian sounding that means the same thing. Finally for the dessert, and assortment of cookies. They were fine, but not mind altering or anything. Being that my family is a bit gluttonous, we also got the extra dessert which was some kind of coconut cake thing with key lime ice cream. Not exactly what I'd call Italian, but it was my favorite dessert by far. But yeah, I'd come back here in a heartbeat. Fantastic food with a good vibe.

Lots of course, decided daily. Delicious, wonderful experience. Quaint and cozy setting and reservations are a must. The food is delicious and you'll be pleasantly full after. The dishes are wonderfully thought up and well executed. The music was a little loud, so it was a little difficult to hear the server explain what the dishes were.

Fantastic food.. just wish there was more of it. My husband said he would be happier with fewer courses and slightly bigger portions for some of the courses. The portion size seemed more conducive to a longer tasting menu. The meal felt a bit rushed, lasting less than an hour. The space is small, and great for a nice romantic meal. The wine list is very pricey and would have been nice to have some bread/carb to pace the meal or the wine just hits you, when you are sharing a bottle between 2! The scallop, pot a feu and pork were fantastic. I thought the sheeps milk gnocchi was the best pasta dish I ever had, but then I tried the orecchiette... wow..Desserts were definitely a weak spot.

One of the best turkey sandwiches I've had in a while. Love the decor and the straightforward menu. Really friendly staff. Good sides (enjoyed the eggplant caponata). Chicken Parm was another bright spot.
