After a long day of sightseeing, I took my father here on a Sunday after the New York Marathon. It's a cozy Italian restaurant on 49th St between Lexington and 3rd Avenue. The service is friendly, helpful, patient, and reasonable given the upscale prices of restaurants around there.
I didn't eat much, but everything was superb from the wine (very good house chianti) to the appetizer (excellent carpaccio), to my light main course (risotto), to my desert (a chocolate mud cake to die for!).
The bathrooms are clean, the service impeccable, sincere, friendly, and undistracting. I will definitely return here again next time I am in New York City as there are many interesting dishes which I was not able to try.
For two people, after a generous 20% tip (tip good service high in New York; 20% is reasonable given the high cost of living in this city), the bill amounted to $120. That night and the next day, I had no indigestion or heartburn.
Favorite Dish: Carpaccio di Parmigiana (transulcent slices of ruddy filet mignon accented by spicy organic baby greens, parmesan chesse, dijon, and vinaigrette sauce-the epitome of "tatare."
