Their ricci appetizer is one of my favorite things in this world. All their pastas are delicious, but I really really like the fusilli and the strozzapreti. One of my favorite restaurants in New York.

The octopus fusilli w/ bone marrow is jaw droppingly delicious. Incredible service. The corner table on the main floor is especially nice. Private rooms are also lux.

Staff and hosts are incredibly rude. Didn't have a reservation but walked in asking very nicely if we could make one for later and they said the were "currently booked for now and the upcoming evening" for un classy people like us. Walked outside to look into the window and the place was a ghost town. Nobody was inside. So to say the least they're racist and liars. Would never go there. Worst 5 minutes of my life wasted.

I want to give it five stars because the food was five stars but the service 3 1/2 stars. They all seemed rushed and not attentive. We were a party of 10, so I get how tough that is. But for the price you pay, you should expect better.

One of just a handful of restaurants I would give full points. Almost took off one star because of the slightly stuffy feel, but that's more a factor of the clientele than the place itself, which is quite pleasant. And I couldn't remove a star due to the level of cooking: though working under the chef/owner's rules, the chef de cuisine has real cooking chips of her own that come through in the impeccably executed, sometimes inventive, and always delicious creations. Try anything with unique or bone marrow, especially when paired with the truly excellent hand-made pastas. They're as good as some of the best in Italy. Service is friendly and not overbearing, and lunch is a relative bargain (though no meal here is inexpensive). Definitely worth a taste. A quick note on my rating scale: 5 stars = exceptional food & service; 4 stars = excellent food & service; 3 stars = decent to good (top-of-the-line for fast service restaurants); 2 stars = mediocre; 1 star = not recommended.

Some of the best seafood and handmade pasta in town. Their Uni lardo crostini is incredible, as are the many crudo selections. It is a swankier place though so if you choose to come, try to dress up a bit. The crowd is also on the older side. But still definitely worth a visit, one of my favorite Italian / seafood restaurants in town.

I came for lunch on both occasions. I ordered the Tartare which is very fresh and each element of the dish complimented each other. I am starting to really like capers with my raw seafood because it is a good pairing. My friend ordered Astice. It's definitely worthy of trying as well because the lobster is cooked perfectly, but it's chilled and then you get a bit of the citrus and it all make sense in the world. We both ordered the strozzapreti which the sea urchin, crab, and basil. The sea urchin paste with crab is to die for. Their pasta is hand-made. It's just a must-have period. I have tried their other pasta Tagliolini, but that's just okay. Their dessert is good as well. We had Strati Di Cioccolato. I usually don't like dark chocolate, but the pistachio gelalto is particularly sweet so it balanced out the bitterness of the dark chocolate cake. I come here everytime I visit the city because it is a definitely must! It's missing a star because of the standoff attitude of the employees, but they are all tentive to your refreshments. They have complimentary bag/coat check and it is efficient.

The best Italian restaurant in NYC. You can't get pasta this fresh anywhere else. Reasonable prices, and versatile as a place for lunch or dinner, whether its a date, a gathering of family/ friends, or a business function
