Inattentive service. When a server finally came to the table to take our order, we asked for a minor change to accommodate a severe food allergy. The server said the chef "didn't allow any changes.". We asked to talk with a manager, who said if we didn't like it, we could leave and (seriously) confirmed that they're more concerned with pleasing the chef than customers. When we protested, they literally threw us out.

Its the second time we visit the restaurant and i can't say anything good about it besides the nice ambience and okay food. The waiter was very rude and even said we now have to get up and go speak to the manager. When the manager came was still unwilling to help us. They both acted like we were outside a popular club and they dont care since they are so busy. I would not recomend this place.

I could not believe how poorly we were treated. The male server acted like we were not worthy of eating there. Well guess what, we are not celeb's, but we can sure buy and sell most of them. So sorry dude..our usually substantial tip was brought down to the 15% that would expectd from a local pauper. The hostess or manager was totally useless and also very rude. She told us that that is just his personality so basically deal with it. Well I will spread the word to EVERY that I know. As I see from past reviews this in not unusual

This place is totally over hyped. Very crowded, uncomfortable seating (felt like I was eating in the middle of the bar). Service was terrible - we attempted to order some crostini while we waiting on the rest of our party and they WOULD NOT LET US! Said we had to order everthing at once - house rules. Okay, we let that go - afterall we heard such great things about this place - but the crostini were meh. Have had so much better elsewhere. The pasta was overcooked. And the special short ribs were such a salt bath it made them inedible. The only redeeming feature of this place (besides a decent decor) is the pastry chef who clearly know what they are doing - desserts were delicious.

Im a local and the staff was consistently rude throughout the seating, ordering and check out process. Additionally the food wasn't good at all. One doesn't season amatriciana sauce (a roman staple) with thyme, rosemary and oregano. It reminded me of an over seasoned tomato sauce from a crap pizzeria like pizza hut. Additionally mixing mustard and the delicate subtle flavor of a sea scallop is tantamount to food murder. To to put a sweet pesto as a dessert sauce was a poor flavor combo and surprising they misspelled a few items in the menu. Seriously Carmellini and Bobby D! after you stinky in Italy I would hope you'd understand that Italian food is traditionally prepared and recipes age old for a reason - because after years of practice they nailed it. So do f it up by blindly trying to tweak masterpieces like an amatricana sauce. I bet you are down with putting pecorino on a fish pasta you silly soprano. It's like thinking you can reinterpret and improve on the Mona Lisa... You just shouldnt dare mess with perfection and that's exactly what each of my Dishes did and failed miserably. As far as the decor it's now become that same generic NYC old factory industrial look. I mean come on!!
