Transcendent food in a recession-friendly setting

Inventive, locally-sourced, and flawlessly-prepared dishes in a recession-friendly setting that feels right on for downtown New York in 2010. Especially enjoyed the grilled ramp over soft-scrambled egg crostini, pork belly and cantaloupe salad, and a perfectly-cooked marinated pork chop. Lunch of a turkey sandwich or chicken parm sub is nearly as transcendent!

Torrisi is the best thing to happen to Nolita! A lot of new restaurants have been popping up in this neighborhood, but Torrisi shines brighter than the rest. I have been a fan of their chicken parm subs since day one, and am now an even bigger fan of their dinners. For 50 dollars, you can eat like royalty. The menu is expansive, and the best part is, except for a choice between 2 entrees, you get it all. Tonight, dinner included 8 courses - 5 antipasti dishes, 1 pasta dish, 1 entree (choice of fish or meat), sorbet, and, to finish it off, an assortment of delicious pastries. Perfectly portioned, every bite as delicious as the next, Torrisi you pass all the tests.

Great Dinner

Dinner goes like this: "it's like you are eating at our house, and all we need to know is if you would like meat or fish." After you decide that, and whether you would like red, white, beer or bubbly, you need not make any further decisions. They serve you 5 small plates to start, followed by a pasta course and then your main. Staff was friendly and loved having us there (I know they just started serving dinner this week, but still), food was rustic and delicious, desserts were the perfect ending. Strong recommendation for people who like Little Owl, Joseph Leonard, Max Tribeca...

Food was absolutely fantastic. I felt like I had falled into a goldmine and then found that is was alread y in NYMAG... now I'm disappointed bc I wanted to keep the place for my own. I can see lines out the door very quickly. Best Sandwich/Hero/Hoagie I can think of in downtown.

reallly good food, but absolutley no idea how to serve customers or take orders, ive been there 3 times thus far 1st time:.they gave my sandwiches to someone else and didnt even realize it and they didnt cut it in half 2nd time:.they had to look around to find who ordered what' 3rd time:they were still confused and didnt cut the sandwich again also i ordered a side of eggplant and mushrooms and they didnt even put it in the bag,i had to get three blocks to realize and go back. they have a good concept but really need to change they way they check the bags before the customers leave. matching names with tables and calling out orders before people leave would help.
