This addition to Frank Prisinzano’s team of well-priced eateries (Frank, Lil’ Frankie’s Pizza) proves that a good dinner can be an uncomplicated affair. The decor has a grown-up feel, with rustic wooden tables, antique chandeliers and a supersleek private dining room in the basement wine vault. Yet simplicity rules the menu. An appetizer of coaster-size beet slices and silky goat cheese pieces is a collision of exquisite flavors. Main courses allow the freshness of each ingredient to shine: linguine with butter and fresh mint; gnocchi with tomato sauce; spaghetti with lemon and Parmesan. Salmon tagliata, two seared hunks atop arugula, is accented by a light fava-bean puree. Food this cheap and cheerful means you won’t have any problem cleaning your plate.

Went for a friend's birthday dinner and we were placed by the back of the restaurant where there were 2 other larger parties there. The room was completely filled and I had a hard time hearing myself.The mozzarella tomato were great, very fresh. We also had the prosciutto with parmesan cheese and pear underneath. It was good and interesting. I had the lamb pasta, which was slightly spicy for my taste but it was decent. I thought the beef ravioli was really good. I ordered the hazelnut panna cotta for dessert. tasted like thick nutella but it was good. I would've ordered the affogato if it wasn't for the panna cotta.
They have a separate bar next to the restaurant and will direct people there if they are still waiting for their friends.
I feel like my star rating is a bit misleading because i did enjoy my meal there and I would encourage people to go, but I would not return. Great for large groups since they don't have a minimum but does have mandatory 18%, which is completely acceptable.
Every visit to New York is completed or set off with Supper. The food is so tasty, I love everything about this place. The food, the staff, and the atmosphere. The pasta is some of the best I've ever had.
Never disappoints. Delicious pasta, not over-priced or pretentious. Eat at the restaurant or the bar next door.
