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.

WOW, just had a fantastic meal at Torrisi that I would highly recommend. It is hard to have seven courses on a tasting menu that you thoroughly enjoy. I have had quite a few tasting menus, enjoying only half of the courses... Our waiter was efficient and knowledgeable. This was unpretentious and perfectly executed. Well, done-Thank you for the experience!!!!!!

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.

"Now that it takes reservations", there's "no excuse not to go" to this NoLita "standout" that "lives up to the hype" with its "clever, delightful" takes on the Italian-American classics "mom made", offered in a seven-course, $65 prix fixe–only format; the basic digs are "tiny", but "nimble" staffers keep the feel "friendly"; P.S. it's dinner-only, but its next-door sibling, Parm, does lunch.
