This rustic Italian restaurant and penthouse event venue in the heart of Manhattan's Flatiron District offers three event spaces designed for large-scale New York City functions as well as more intimate gatherings. The restaurant's menu is inspired by Italian cuisine with a rustic flair, while using local and seasonal ingredients to create original dishes such as its handcrafted pastas and crispy pizzas from its imported, state-of-the-art Pavesi oven. The menu changes seasonally to make the most of current harvests and uses locally sourced ingredients from the nearby farmerís market. In keeping with the longstanding tradition of pairing wine with food, this Italian restaurant offers an extensive wine list with a surprising range of affordable pairings from critically-acclaimed small organic Italian vineyards to newly-discovered domestic boutiques. The wine list features 100 thoughtfully selected wines, all under $100, including a selection of 20 wines by the glass and quartino.

This Flatiron District restaurant offers several group dining and full buyout/rental possibilities for large NYC groups and private parties.
The Chef's Table (up to 14 Guests) / Bar and Lounge (up to 50 Guests) / Group Dining

The restaurant's comfortable bar and lounge is also perfect for your Manhattan cocktail reception, corporate happy hour or evening party of up to 50 guests.
