Flashes of Potential, But Some Glitches
By colpo on 4/23/2003
An immediate turn-off was our server. She told us that the chef recommends that each table have three savory courses (apps, pasta and mains). We fell for it, but it wasn't a very Italian way to eat a meal and ended up feeling unbalanced. My tablemate ordered the 'Italian Fried Chicken', a marketing gimmick that features a large bowl of fried chicken pieces with some lemon wedges. I guess the lemon is the Italian part, but eating the dish from a bowl was unwieldy and made for a dumb main. The rest of the food I recall as good, but eminently forgettable.

The service was pushy and the servers were obnoxious. The food was good, but the dining experience was ruined by the classless service.
Relaxed atmosphere and delicious food

I found the rustic decor very relaxing giving the restaurant an almost casual feel. The service and food were outstanding. I had the most delicious gnocci I had every tasted.
Tuscany in New York
By nycfoodie on 2/4/2003
I am almost apprehensive to write how great this restaurant is for fear that lines will start forming around the block. Inventive Tuscan food, a rustic casual atmosphere, and great service by friendly and knowledgeable staff are the perfect ingredients for a wonderful dining experience.
Best Italian in Flatiron
By Pudgy on 12/30/2002
Beppe makes very hearty food - earthy and filling. The french fries are fabulous. The fireplace is very homy and the service is very attentive.
