We know NYC is crowded but limits should be set. This restaurant was quite packed and I told the lady we could wait to have a nice table. But no. We had to sit, very close to all our neighbours and almost didn't have a plce to put my jacket. Prices are high, but ok, it is the center of Little Italy. There was no latin atmosphere as everybody seemed in a big rush. Still there were some business meetings next to us, so I had a little pick of the mafia movies feeling, but just a bit. I ordered a lasagna and I couldn't remember about it the minute after. It was just bland and nothing special. Tasted like the cheap frozen lasagnas we buy in the supermarket. This feedback was given to the waiter and I told him that we were expecting more from italian restaurants in NYC.
