i have a background in the food industry, and its so nice to see a place do something simple and unique and still serve old favorites like lasagna but instead of chop meat they use wild boar, and a meatball dish that is made up of 2 huge softball size meatballs made of veal, pork, and beef, they are amazing, also the pizza is so refreshing with buffalo mozzarella, and a simple sauce of chopped tomato, oh yeah they put house sauce and ricotta cheese on the table with great bread,
just terrific, a wonderfull downtown experience

for a place that we read about in ny mag. we expected it to be hip and just ok food, what we found was great food , and being over 40 we were not the oldest there,its still pretty hip but a hip that suits every age, they do a beef carpaccio for a special that was amazing , the veal chop was tender and juicy, the steak a little well done but the cherry peppers that come with it are so tasty, we skipped desert but they sent over a panna cota which was good, cause it was free,
its like a cool private house in the middle of no where

i have lived down here for 8 years, this place made me feel like i was somewhere else , at least during dinner, a real good thing, the food was sublime, pizza very fresh, crispy crust,and fresh cheese, steak was intresting and loved the meatballs the most.
