Group of 6 for dinner and drinks. Ordered one appetizer and 5 entree's. Our 6th guest being vegetarian ordered a few vege sides for her main meal. Lots of great drink options and the server was well educated in wine. Bit unusual that the service was somewhat spotty. The server was not charming at all and would disappear for a long time before we saw him again. We were one of three tables in the restaurant so it felt a little strange when we had to ask the barkeep to clear our plates. Food is fantastic, pasta and sauce are authentic. Trout was perfectly cooked. Clam Pasta was delicious. Chicken was a solid option for anyone who doesn't like italian a whole lot. Our vegetarian diner was satisfied with her sides but complained they were a little oily. I would go back for the food, but I would ask for a different server!

This is the best kept secret in the Gramercy area for foodies and wine lovers! Great rustic feel to this wine-bar and italian tapas joint that is host to a really excellent dinner menu. The perfect unassuming spot for a date in Gramercy and you can walk over to the park afterwards. The crostini's are delicious and the creamy burrata and housemade pappardelle with braised-pork sauce tops many of the more expensive restaurants in the area. Gramercy needs more restaurants like this!
