Inaptly naming a restaurant is like giving your son a girl's name. Maybe the previous restaurant was named Noodle Pudding and they saved on new signage, whatever! The name should tell you something about the restaurant. In this case the owner chef is from the Italian island of Ischia, known for it's seafood dishes. So something Italian like Sapori di Ischia might be more appropriate.But once I got past my annoyance with the name I was greatly impressed with the first rate quality of the food. In Italian cooking, less is more, simpler is better and quality ingredients replace technique (read French) in assuring a great dsh. Here the chef hit the mark and everyone one of us (10) all Italian-American foodies were oohing and ahhing. Prices are very reasonable, service was attentive although the servers auction the food once it comes to the table (Who ordered the Pasta Bolognese?). This shouldn't happen in a quality restaurant. Try this place, you'll love it! P.s.: It needs some form of sound attenuation, all hard surfaces,very noisy. Would I take a date? No, my wife won't let me...

One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. The pasta is always home-made and the flavors are always great.

Our family loves this informal lively restaurant on Henry Street. From the nice service of a loaf of Tuscan bread with EVO Oil for dipping the stage is set for a fun and delicious dining experience. Great pasta, beautiful salads, large portions. Noisy enough to feel comfortable bringing the kids. Only drawback....cash only.
