    Sit in the back garden area (covered in the winter). Definitely get the brussel sprouts, some vino, and any of their pasta dishes. They offer gluten free pasta now too! Bolognese pictured below.

    Grab a Pinot Noir, a friend or date, order apps and a meal and enjoy. Cool outdoor courtyard in back. Try the rigatoni for pasta, or the pork shank for a meat selection. All the burrata apps were good

    1 of my fave N. Italian in NYC! Caramelized cauliflower, brussel sprouts, spaghetti carbonara, & “Orecchiette” Broccoli Rabe & Sausage are musts! So is sitting in the enclosed garden.

    This place is heavenly! The duck was done perfectly! The olives stuffed with blue cheese that accompany the dirty martini is delightful. The black truffle ravioli melts in your mouth. A+ everything.

    Hidden below a staircase on 14th Street is a terrific place for Italian food. Recommend: garlic bread, a massive brick of goodness. Pasta and raviolis are all good as well. Nice wine and cocktails.

    Went here on a date & loved it. Low lights to set the mood. Reasonably priced. Try the fried calamari with zucchini! It is to die for :) Has a great selection of wine. The bottle service was great! ♡

    The Spaghetti & Shrimp Fra Diavola is on the right side of spicy & delicious. Its a great dish to share, which I did with the “Orecchiette” Broccoli Rabe. 6X combo points if you pull it off!

    Ravioli with black truffles are the best ($25)! Try lychee martini ($10) and delicious Buratta Di Puglia ($11). Lamb chops ($27) also have amazing taste!

    Amazing food! Sit in the back room on a nice night, it is open air if its not raining and absolutely beautiful out back! Try the pasta with prosciutto and peas with truffle oil, it was amazing.

    Yummy Italian in a cute and cozy location. Portions aren’t crazy aggressive so treat yourself to garlic bread to start. Strangely marg special was 👌🏻

    Great food - beautiful burrata appetizer followed by a gorgeous grilled branzino. Cheesecake was pretty, gleaming with strawberries but had a mealy texture. Skip dessert and get a second appetizer.

    Excellent food. Everything was fantastic. Rice Balls and Brussel Sprouts for apps. Black truffle ricotta ravioli as an entree and ricotta cheesecake for dessert. We sat in the garden area. So nice.

    Recommended from Cafeteria's own Chef Linda. I went here with my parents and my boyfriend. We ended up sitting in the back terrace. Beautiful ambiance. Wonderful service, though the food took a while.

    We were impressed with the pork saltimbocca (juicy and well seasoned), short ribs, mushroom crusted salmon, and spaghetti and meatballs. Well executed food and good desserts.

    Truffle pasta was superb! The place has a very romantic ambiance and feels like it's on a different time zone. Cabernet and Barbara reds are both very good! 👌🏼

    Gnocchi with duck was amazing. Burrata was delicious. A great place for dinner! Kind of loud but it was good for a group dinner when everyone had been day drinking.

    Grilled octopus and pork belly appetizers are great. Really enjoyed the avocado and kale salad. Duck breast is a great entree. Can't beat the tiramisu for desert.

    all excellent: maple Brussels sprouts (!), bone marrow escargot (!!), black truffle ravioli. good but not great: risotto mozzarella balls (lots of tips raved about them but I though they were just ok)

    The Brussels Sprouts and Spaghetti & Shrimp "Fra Diavola" are good options if choosing to share. Sit in the back, where if it's sunny they'll pull back the retractable roof.

    Save room for the excellent pastas, which are ideal for sharing. The basic spaghetti and meatballs and the ravioli with black truffles are both delicious.

    Delicious home made pasta. Decor is dated and vibe is a little strange but highly recommend the food. Get the carbonara - among the best I’ve had.

    Most of the pastas can be replaced with a gluten-free penne or spaghetti, but for the ones that can't (e.g. ravioli) , they're happy to create a dish with the same sauce and a gf pasta

    Party of four an each of us ordered different apps, entrees and deserts...everything was awesome! ESP enjoyed the stuffed figs and pork belly, and coconut sorbet.

    Spacious & lots of seating. Yummy selections. Hangar steak was delish. They also offer Gf pasta! Great spot to bring out of towners.

    The rice balls were a little over-fried, but the freshness of the pasta dishes are worth the trip. It's crowded & noisy, but hey, it's NYC so nothing new there if you're cold, there are fireplaces

    Make a reservation for the outside area in the back - it's beautiful! Also order the short rib ravioli or shrimp & spaghetti 👌🏾

    The prosciutto fig and parm platter, rice balls, and eggplant apps were all delicious. The lobster and scallop ravioli was ok, it had very little filling though.

    Cute place, lots of seating. Mozzarella with truffle, fried mozzarella balls, brussels sprouts and any pasta. Didn't love the gnocchi as the sauce was too plane.

    Bone marrow is best for groups as it is a large portion. Carbonara is delicious. Ask to sit in the garden!

    Ask for a table in the back, order pork belly gorgonzola stuffed figs & let the magic begin! Trofie w truffle butter and chocolate torte win all. Incred find.

    The striped bass with roasted asparagus was incredible, as was the salmon. The best garlic bread I have ever had!

    Risotto balls are great. The cheese one is slightly better of you only want to pick one. The pasta with truffle oil and peas is also a favorite.

    The whole wheat pasta with roasted cauliflower is Amazeballs! I don't even like Italian that much and did not want meat. Would highly recommend this place!

    Huge space. Beautiful garden area in the back. Love the restaurant, but not the food as much. Pasta was slightly undercooked and wine was much lighter than promised.
