Very good. Friendly service. Not exorbidantly priced. Ink pasta was to die for; arugala salad good with the grapes. Chocolate tort full of unexpected flavors.

One of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The staff was fun, courteous, and educated us on the origins of the fare, which enriched our appreciation of the meal. The presentation was exceptional, and the food was delicious.

The portion size for my $20 entree was a joke. Like 5 bites. While the food was tasty, this was the only time I was so angry with a restaurant that I was tempted to chuck my plate at the kitchen. Never in my life had I been to an Italian restaurant, and had to ask for 3 baskets of bread in order to feel somewhat full. I would've been more understanding if the waitress warned me it would be small, or if this was obviously an uber fancy table-cloth place, but it looked very casual. If the portion was like 10x what it was, then I'd re-consider my 1-star rating to 4 or 5 stars. (this was for some squid-ink pasta)

Capelleti pasta is delicate and wonderful. Wine on tap? Yes, please.

We started at the bar with a cocktail, I had the Quince Collins, it was delicious! So many ingredients, you have to commend the bartenders for their work. I've eaten here 3 times before but I always forget what is the best way to work the go with the prix fixe menu or just pick & choose as we prefer! So we got the waiters advise which was to do 2 apps, 2 pastas, 1 main course & 2 Desserts & share! We shared the Fegatini duck liver mousse to start, it was divine! My BF likened it to ice cream lol! Then we had 2 pastas, STRACCI wide ribbon pasta, braised wild mushrooms, rosemary oil & TAGLIATELLE ragù antica, parmigiano. I just love their homemade pastas, it just melts in your mouth! The flavors were delish ! Our fave was the Stracci. The portion sizes are perfect too, any more would be too much. For main course, we shared a special of Lamb porterhouse chops, with pureed parsnip & a crisp swirl of sweet & regular potato. It was beautiful! Again, the portion sizes were perfect. For dessert, I had dark chocolate almond tart, cherries, marcona almonds vanilla gelato. I wasn't a fan of the dark chocolate exterior, the filling, cherries, almons & ice Cream was divine! my BF had the Tiramisu which he loved. The staff are fantastic! It's one of my fave restaurants in NYC.

We got the squid ink pasta and the truffle raviolli. Holy sh*t. Delicious. We also had their ruccola salad which was impeccably well done. Highly recommend it all. Their wine is also tasty and affordable. I got the lambrusco tasting set. Highly recommend the lightest with hints of raspberry!

Great taste at a fair price. The antipasti with cured meat and cheese are great and very well presented. We then got the tagliatelle al ragù and tortellini in brodo: both really good. Definitely a taste of Emilia Romagna in NYC.
