This is a true New York staple restaurant. I remember as a child, and even just last Christmas on my way to Paris, I had to stop in and get a family style classic Italian meal. Portions are very generous and made to be shared. I highly recommend calling for a reservation ASAP. Their menu is broken down by protein, pasta, veggies and sides, and classic Italian appetizers. Since portions are very large and depending on your party size I would check out their menu online ahead of time. When I went for Christmas dinner with one other friend, we split the Christmas pasta special and still had leftovers for two days! This is a true NYC dining experience you do not want to miss out on!
