When we arrived at 10:05 on a slow Sunday, there was only the briefest hesitation about whether to seat late walk ins in an entirely deserted restaurant. Mentioning our reservation brought about profuse apologies (they hadn't checked the reservation list since 9) and the highest standard of service I have seen in a small neighborhood restaurant in a long time. The food was top notch (yes "grandma's meatballs" really are THAT good) and little extras were thrown in several times. It has been said that the mains are rather small in size and they are, but not overly so. To us they were the perfect size to be able to enjoy our starters and finish our entrees without feeling stuffed (or having to take half of it home.) Everything about the evening made us want to come back soon. Especially the modest bill!

Wonderful new place! Just had a birthday dinner here with a group of 13 and was impressed by the impeccable service (with a large group too!) and the food (since we just about got to try everything!) Everything tastes so fresh and unfussy-this is where you come when you are in the mood to EAT and don't want to deconstruct and nibble. The spinach with monkfish pasta was AMAZING as was the parpadelle and gnocchi. Appetizers-loved the cod cakes and the mushroom starters. Staff was great-always making the wine was coming and just being very friendly and nice. They obviously love this place. No snootiness here! And of course-prices were super. :) Will be back.
