I was the guest of a dinner party, I live in the neighborhood but on 2nd so I didn't know about this place as i rarely go to first ave. The staff was so attentive, the owners were warm and friendly & the raviolis i had with a mushroom truffle cream sauce was to die for. Can't wait to go back again and try another pasta.

Three of ate dinner here last week. The place was decorated beautiful with a charming atmosphere, casual yet very elegant. My short rib pasta was delicious, I want to bottle the sauce and take it home. Definitely looking forward to returning again soon.

Went here for dinner and ended up having a couple of drinks. Best cosmopolitans in town. The food was a delightful surprise also, very good. Comfortable setting and great all around, thanks for the new addition to the neighborhood.

First let me start by saying this is a lovely dining atmosphere. Good place to go and relax and have some great eats. Almost feels like your on vacation lol. I give the food an A+ on taste and presentation. I can't believe how tasteful the food was, who would have known. I must rave about this place because it was well worth the visit. I would suggest everyone try it for themselves

What can I say, super cool new spot. Nice food, presentation, decor, and attentive service- though busy. We got luck with a table after a 10min wait this past Thurs but will call ahead next time. Try the mushroom rav with truffles, excellent.
