**** (4 stars)
This homey little counter service Italian place off the lobby of River View Plaza is a great spot for lunch or dinner.
The price for a ten inch pizza is great, and it has a very authentic crust such as you’d get in Napoli.
You can get any kind of pasta with any kind of sauce, but I haven’t yet found a combination that excites me, although the serving size is large enough for two or more.
I like the Caesar salad, which isn’t tossed, but has a tasty dressing.
And the very best item is the garlic bread, a generous serving with lots of garlic butter, fixed in the pizza oven so the edges have a slight char. The sandwiches, such as the Italian Beef, are served on the same bread.
There’s a pleasant outside patio where you can enjoy the view of the Trump tower–if you look straight up.
