Honestly, go here strictly for the food which boasts some of the best Italian in all of the city. Nestled on Bowery Street and not a long walk from Soho, treat yourself to some to-die-for pasta at this eatery. Delicious dishes paired with a down-to-earth vibe pull a diverse crowd who came for the breakfast pizza, Italian sans pretention, and to be within walking distance of the LES action. Make sure to have the ricotta crostini with toasted almonds and honey because it feels like clouds in your mouth. Listen to smooth jazz while eating here against a rustic backdrop, making it a perfectly versatile place for brunch or a nice candlelit dinner.
