We went to this place a couple of nights ago with friends and we kind of like it just because of the waiter that was very nice and attentive. But the food wasn't that good with different dishes tasting alike.
The atmosphere is nothing impressive with a very narrow entrance and a awful bar on the left side.
Impressively the staff is nice and our waiter was very kind, although he does not get paid for weeks!! That was the real not-coming-back point. We learned from the staff that they are underpaid and very often they do not get paid for even three weeks. Really!!??
How can we support a business that doesn't even pay its employees? This is labor exploitation and it's against the law and against the civil rights.

I don't normally like to eat in the Times Square area, but my boyfriend's grandmother, who lived in NY for a while ages ago, told him to take his family here when they were visiting from Georgia and Tennessee for law school graduation. We were very happy with the place and go back every few months, and went last night with friends before seeing a show. We usually go on weekdays when it's not busy, and the service is wonderful. The food is great and if you're up here instead of in Little Italy it's an excellent choice.
