WOW - Shocking. So wife and I went walked over to check out the new restaurant - the laminated extensive menus should have told us to turn around.. Italian food is pretty easy to make and cheap - Pizza the food of the peasants is very simple to make and a good way to gauge an 'Italian Restaurant'. So we ordered antipasti, pizza and a pasta dish - figured we would give this place a fair shot - MISS. Antipasti, $8.95 - pile the meat high and give me 4 little sticks of cheese, some dodgy 'risotto balls' and some greasy veggies... sad but this was probably the best part. Pasta was blanched which is fair enough I guess, but I thought this place was going to be good.... Pizza OMG. So not to sound like a food snob - the 15 year old girl on the table next to us also only tried to eat one piece and left the rest. The frozen crust they buy is terrible, the topping equally bad (grated kraft mozzarella I guess - what a treat). I explained to the server I did not want it as it was not restaurant grade food, he looked at it and highlighted it was not cooked enough - Thanks! My final tip to the server was perhaps to stop all the staff putting the Menu/Order books down their backs - figured its pretty disgusting and unhygienic, butt cracks and backs get pretty sweaty yes?! The prices are very expensive for what they are serving, especially when you account for the ambiance and decor. (There are other options less than 2 miles away that are 100 times better value). So if you are looking for low grade 'Italian Food' try it otherwise avoid. Only 200 yards down street and will not visit again. When I saw the very large menu and big bright adverts on windows I should have realized I was entering a poor attempt at creating something...... Ahhh someone posted a picture of what I am talking about!!

Having been a long time customer of D'Amico's in the Village, we were so happy to see Nash and Brina open a second location right near our house. All is great; had another of Nash's famous pizzas tonight.

The wait staff are very attentive, and the food is typical Italian fare. I didn't order what the other reviewer ordered, but the Shrimp Scampi, the Osso Bucco, and the Saltimbocca were spot on with what you expect from Italian cuisine.

Great homemade pasta. We ordered the spaghetti daviolo, which has a wonderful spicy sauce, the tortellini Genovese, and the mushroom ravioli. The mushroom ravioli was the show stealer, with the earthy mushrooms and a rich cream sauce The prices were also very reasonable, especially for the quality of the food. Service was great. Atmosphere is "casual" and "Italian Stereotype". Don't forget to try the gelato. The marscapone with dark cherries was a unique and authentically Italian flavor.
