Regardless of the food (all of it under $15), the lure of its dark wood, chandeliers, marble-top bar upstairs and cozy grotto below is likely to continue to draw in the young and attractive set that's opening galleries left and right in the neighborhood. - Peter Meehan
downstairs is an experience even before the food arrives. the menu is distinctly different than peasant. the gnocchi and spaghetti with anchovy sauce are delicious and the tiramisu is rich and flavorful. polpette and polpi apps are ok. excellent service and nice wine list. get there before 8 to avoid a long wait.
