Neighborhoods: Sutton Place, Midtown
Barely averages a "3" – The only explanation for this place's popularity is the scarcity of cheap restaurants in the Sutton Place area. Sservice is lacking: the female bartender is downright rude and unaccomodating. There is only 1 waiter working the entire restaurant. Since he seems to know the clientele, he dawdles at every table, resulting in a 10 minute wait for your menus. Busboys are used to fill in and they are somewhat effective. The food: barely mediocre. Sauce tastes canned. You can find better in any other neighborhood. Also, too LOUD.
Poor service, poor quality – Although this is a spot for regulars, I find it lacking in some of the basics of a good restaurant = SERVICE. Lacking in knowledge of the menu and slow to answer question or take orders, there are better spots to go.
Best Chicken Parmigiana in town! – I love this place! Great value, great food. Fish is excellent, try out the parmigian dishes
A Great Catch – While there is usually a wait at the bar due to a no reservations policy, you will be rewarded. Great pastas and fish, plus meats, antipasti, and wonderful salad with salad parmesiano on top. The house Chianti is very drinkable and at under $4 a glass, worth imbibing in. The decor is clean, nostalgic, and very comfortable. No parties more than 4 though.
It's Worth the Price! – Busy little Italian on the Upper East Side with better than average food at reasonable prices. Veal Parmegiana was outstanding and fish dishes were better than average. You can have a nice glass of wine, salad, and entree and dessert and get out for $50-60 for two. Good food at fair prices! What a concept!!
