went back tonight for dinner, the olives were not worth the effort, I would have rather paid the MTA fair to go to Marlow and Sons for their olives. WHY when you have great Burrata down the street in Little Italy, would you bring it in from Cali, AND IT SUCKED, Flavorless except for the SEA salt .ONCE AGAIN the highlight of the meal was the PIZZA!!!! again A+++++++++++++. but expensive, dinner for 2...2 beers , 2 apps, 2 pizzas almost $100. next time just going for the pizza, or just getting take out pizza. the rest is crap! and AGAIN the service is outstanding, I could do with out the Bitchy host!

Great service. Decor has a few nice touches but nothing to write home about. Pizzas with red sauce were flat, smothered in sauce, & burnt. The people who got the pizzas seemed disappointed...most took 1/2 a pizza home in a box. One could hear how crunchy the dough was from 2 tables away...The pizzas without red sauce looked airier & more appetizing. We had their quattro formaggi pizza & a ricotta bruschette...Both dishes had good flavor, were simple, & rustic. Nice but honestly nothing special. Maybe I have high expectations, but in NYC if you are dropping $50-70 on lunch, there are plenty of better places to go. But I am not writing it off yet. They still are figuring things out. I plan to go back after they have their dinnertime "legs" & see how it fairs. I would suggest you do the same.
