Located in the East Village, I forewarn you there is no sign to indicate the name. But once you find it you'll be glad you did! Their homemade Itallian food is amazing and the place is packed and more than a little cramped and noisy but oddly that is part of its likable charm.
As busy as it is, the staff is overly attentive and while the food takes a while to get to you, it is very reasonably priced and theres lots of great wine selections to keep you busy.
I would definitely go back!
