I am a former NYer who comes to the City 3-4 times a year from Dallas for business and a food fix. For me..so little time and so many choices. Well ..this time I wanted Italian...this place is OUTSTANDING in terms of value, service and quality of food. Had mussels, black fettichini "seafood special" /w shrimp, scallops, glass of italian wine and cappacino..under $50.. NYers, you have a gem here!

The perfect place to catch up with an old friend without straining your budget. The staff won't rush you, the food is just right (the lemony mussels a delicious appetizer), and the Mona Lisa theme is subtle (and, in the bathroom, funny). The service is welcoming, efficient, and unobtrusive (no small trick in a small room). So nice to have found a Midtown restaurant where you're not paying extra for noise, showiness, or hype.
