Low-key dinner with friends on the Upper East Side.
We ordered the fried calamari, which ended up being both calamari and shrimp. No complaints here! I really liked the spicy marinara sauce that came with it too.
All the pasta dishes were fresh and tasty. I normally don't order Spaghetti Bolognese at restaurants because I think it's a dish that's theoretically easy to make at home (if I cooked, that is). This Spaghetti Bolognese made me want to order to it the next time I dine here.
Verdict: A. Solid neighborhood Italian place.
