Don’t mistake this cozy brick-walled spot for just another pasta-slinging joint. Satisfying Italian fare—like grilled shrimp with farro, plump raisins and pine nuts, or garganelli tossed with a rustic fennel and sausage ragù—comes courtesy of Union Square Cafe vet chef Scott Fratangelo. His wife, Heather, also a USC refugee, handles desserts: Her caramel affogato and bombolini will put your morning coffee and doughnuts to shame.

This is a wonderful restaurant! The greeting was warm. The wait staff was knowledgeable and all seemed to work well together! I ate there with my family on a Saturday night, they were very busy until 9:30 PM but no one tried to rush us! The quality of the food was excellent. I could see they treated their regulars like family and although I am not a New Yorker, I was treated with grace and excellent hospitality. My only quibble is that the address has changed and the location is no longer on 81st Street! That caused me to be ten minutes late, but no one objected and we were seated without eyeball rolling! They are now located on second avenue closer to 75th street! The food and service were four star without any snobbery! Great evening! KRW
