Delightful rooftop dinner. Giuseppe very attentive and entertaining.
Booked all 8 spots for a recent surprise birthday celebration. Giuseppe was such a pleasure to collaborate with ahead of time; he was responsive and made sure to accommodate the dietary restrictions of our group. The experience itself was nothing short of magical. The rooftop space was simply beautiful, and in spite of the chilly spring weather, everyone was able to enjoy the view (which included an unobstructed Empire State building). The food was homey and comforting, the ambience was spot on, and Giuseppe's company was one of the highlights of the evening! He is an interesting, funny, and gracious host - would definitely recommend to others and book this again!
The pasta, peas and pancetta is out of this world. Watching him work in the kitchen is amazing. He takes the time to prep and carefully prepare your meal. When you finally get to sit down and dine you are taken back to that time when you were in Italy at a small restaurant and you were treated as if you were the only customer. The food is not only beautifully plated but tastes even better. Nothing was rushed. You are given the sensation of being wrapped in the best comfort food you've ever eaten. In today's world, it's very easy to go anywhere and get a good meal, but it's really hard to have a great dining experience. With Giuseppe, you get to have BOTH!
From decor, menu and right down to the music, G was with us every step of the way and was so open to our ideas as well. The night was amazing he literally turned our yard into a magical oasis where people were asking could they get married in your yard in Brooklyn. The food was exquisite and the pairing of the wine was perfect! Our daughter and her friends had a amazing evening and some described it as enchanting. We will be hiring G again for my upcoming birthday and I cannot wait to see what he creates for us!
