Fodor's Review

This charmer serves old world–style cooking in a casual cozy environment in vibrant Little Italy. For a more relaxed meal, choose a table on the sidewalk; inside, the dining room is livelier, and jammed with local art and fellow diners. Baked eggplant in a mozzarella-topped tomato sauce is a dream of a dish—tomato sauce doesn't get better than this. Other favorite options include the linguine with fresh clams, mussels, scallops, and shrimp; a hearty cioppino; and an expert osso bucco. The wine list is affordable and young Italian waiters’ good humor makes this a fun experience.
