In its stereotypical old-world splendor, the very red dining room here looks like a leftover movie set from nearby Kaufman Astoria Studios. The cooks are masters of sauce, especially the garlic-laden product ladled over hot seafood antipasto, and the mercifully non-gloppy traditional brown sauce on the osso buco. On a menu of surprising depth, seafood entrees—especially shrimp, langoustines and lobster "prepared any way you like"—stand out, in keeping with the kitchen's ostensibly Venetian orientation.

Wine List

The restaurant's extensive list, which is well priced, has given rise to a series of special Italian regional wine dinners well worth attending.

For Kids
Half-portions, portions without sauce, or portions with just a little sauce are never a problem.
