I never leave a negative review, but this time felt compelled to do it.

Food is mediocre at best. Pasta was overcooked (the worst comment one can leave about an Italian restaurant). Calamari and shrimp, bland. $13 bottle of Chianti peddled for $72, have never seen a crazier mark up. Asked for a desert on the menu, was brought a different one. Asked why, was told that they don't have the other one, but this one is good too?! It might very well be, but to bring a substitute dish without asking is quite a faux pas for a respectable place. To top it off: a party of 5, tip included, fine, no argument there, but 25%?! Absurd!

The manager made a table for our family, as we arrived without a reservation. The pasta, seafood, calamari, and ricotta cheesecake were the best. We were so happy we took the chance. We only wish we discovered this gem earlier in the trip.

The food was wonderful, a very genuine Italian trattoria experience with creative surprises and in a warm and unrushed setting. The service could not have been more kind and thoughtful. The greatest confirming signal is that as we left at 10:30 six young Italians entered enthusiastically speaking Italian and I noted one said in effect: “I love coming here.”

This is right across the street from the Hilton Garden Inn and after some loud but delicious meals elsewhere, we opted for a sunday night dinner here.

Very very quiet, gracious service. We had calamari, branzino and a limone pasta.

We sat inside and the windows were open. There is a lovely patio.

I recommend Pepolino for a mellow Italian meal in Tribeca.
