Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

This upscale classic Italian joint is one of the newest eateries owned by Midtown Village restaurant mavens Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran. When it’s warm out, diners can choose to sit on the picturesque back patio, which is every bit the Italian scene with light bulbs hanging overhead and even a clothesline draped with laundry. Begin your stay with wine and Gigi’s Anitpasto Plate before losing yourself in the fontina-stuffed meatballs served with pasta soaked in slow-braised “Sunday Gravy.” Just be sure to order early: The red sauce is only available each day while supplies last.
