    The scallops and gnocchi were amazing. The fritters were also a great starter.

    Super sceney. The food was good but the service wasn't quite on par. The hostesses were full of attitude; the wait staff was friendly but managed that odd balance of inattentive yet always there.

    One of the best meals you'll have in nyc. Worth the wait/hype. I like it best with 2-3 friends, that way you can try a bunch of things. If the mezzaluna pasta is on the menu - get it! Rigatoni is 👌🏼

    Appetizers and pasta dishes disappointing. Didn’t hit the spot, unlike its sister resto Misi.

    The service was excellent, the decor is spot on, but the food just totally missed the mark. Over salted and overpriced across the board. I wanted to love the meal but I just couldn’t.

    It is everything you hoped it would be and more. There was a special appetizer focaccia with tomatoes that melted my brain, so trust the specials. The sheep’s milk agnolotti entrée was divine too.
