Great food, interesting and delicious cocktails, nice place, a few ambiance options (downstairs more lively, upstairs more quiet), and nice/helpful staff and mgmt. We had a great dinner out with friends. Thanks!

There is so much really good Italian food in NY - we were a bit disappointed with our dishes, and the Tiramisu seemed store bought. They do offer outdoor dining, which is a big plus and we enjoyed the funky music soundtrack they played.

Nice ambiance for a Monday night. Staff were friendly ! My friend and I had a glass of wine, shared a salad. I had the fish entree and it was delectable. We were too full for dessert!

As always, the brunch was wonderful. I had the pancakes and my friend had the frittata. Her frittata looked a little dry to me but she said it was yummy. I really loved the fried twist on the pancake recipe. Highly recommended for any meal.

First time visit to this restaurant. It was recommended by friends and my wife loves Italian so we gave it a try. Everything was delicious. We started with fried calamari and bufala mozzarella … both were generous portions. For our main course we had the Linguine Alla Vongole and Linguine Pescatore … both were plentiful and absolutely DELICIOUS. We also enjoyed a bottle of pinot grigio (which, to our delight was 50% off). We will definitely return.

The food and service were great, but it was a bit noisy, and conversation was at times
difficult. I wish I lived close enough for takeout or delivery! Still, I'd like to repeat how
good the food was and how efficient and friendly the waiters and other staff people were.

A really nice place with great service. Appetizer-wise, the carciofi were creative and great; the bruschetta was not authentic, but was lightly toasted bread with do-it-yourself chopped tomatoes on the side, this was disappointing. The salmon tartare didn't have much salmon. My friend's pasta was terrific. The drinks were generous and the ambiance really pleasant. I've always had a good meal there.

Everything was just ‘ok’ unfortunately. It’s a lively place but the dishes and drinks were underwhelming and simply not worth the prices. Not even sure why they bill themselves as an Italian place. Sorry guys. I wish it had been better.

Give yourself a tasty treat and head to Pescatore! The shrimp scampi over risotto that I had was a true winner! Their special spaghetti carbonara, fixed tableside in a giant wheel of Parmesan cheese is rich enough for the whole table to share ( our recommendation anyway) . Our daughter had a stuffed pasta of some kind that was delicious as well. This was our second time back and the long stemmed artichoke appetizer was as great as we remembered. The restaurant is small and WILL be noisy- it is NY after all! It was a fantastic last meal for us in that iconic town. The service is fabulous- ask for Lauren and enjoy the honest welcome and cheer that she will bring to your experience!! Buono Appetito!

We went here by mistake! I confused it with another excellent restaurant we had been to, and I'm glad I did. This was a very nice find. As local as you can get in Midtown. It's an unassuming storefront with tables upfront, and it's unassuming inside. Food was great, service was great, ambience was local and friendly. I'd definitely recommend it for food and for just being in New York.

Food was delicious, as always, and very fresh. Wait staff were very courteous and attending. We were not rushed either, which was perfect as this was a business lunch and we needed a little extra time. Very nice experience. Will definitely return and recommend this restaurant to others.

There were 9 of us for brunch so that sat us upstairs and it was perfect. I made the reservation and the other 8 people couldn’t stop raving and said it is our new place for brunch get together s. Great brunch menu, the waitress couldn’t have been nicer and attentive . All round a wonderful experience.

Very disappointed in overall experience. Staff was wonderful--but food was terrible. Ordered a glass of chianti and they didn't have ANY?? An italian wine bar and they were out of chianti?????
The ceasar salad lettuce was limp and old. Bread on table also tasted stale. Entree---pasta, chicken parm and steak were all SUB-PAR. Would not return.

My family was in town for a wedding, and we were worried about finding a restaurant that could fit 11 people on a Friday night without being super expensive. Even though we arrived almost 15 minutes early, the table was ready for us. Service was great and the food was delicious. They were also able to accommodate the people in our party who are gluten-free.

Great food and service! Playlist is fantastic as well but a patron did get up and change the music... probably not a good idea to allow access like that 🤷‍♀️

Great brunch spot. High end atmosphere at an affordable price. Also, the boozy brunch specials are hard to beat and the service is great. Will definitely be back.
