Fodor's Review

Roughly translated s "the great beyond," Al Di La has been consistently packed since it first opened back in 1998, and it's easy to understand why: affordable prices, a relaxed and charming environment, and simple yet soulfully comforting dishes from the Veneto region of Italy. Expect to find homemade pastas like black spaghetti with crab or tortellini filled with roasted squash, as well as meaty mains such as braised rabbit, or hanger steak. The dessert fritters are legendary.

The no-reservations policy ensures that the place always has a buzz around it from waiting patrons.

al di là Review

Go early to avoid the wait, as they don't take reservations... but DO NOT miss this place. The food strikes a perfect balance of authenticity, seasonality, and inventiveness. They have a wine bar around the corner if you just want something quick.

I'll take Cucina

Al di La is overpriced, there's always a long wait, and there aren't very many vegetarian selections. In addition, they are a terrible neighbor, spilling their mop water out their side-entrance door, right next to an apartment building.
