From the same family as Vivolo, which I also love as a neighborhood favorite on 74th/ Lex.
Delicious lunch there today -- insalata di frutti di mare was an enormous platter of fresh calamari, octopus, mussels, etc atop a bed of arugula with a light drizzle of lemon vinaigrette. Seemed it was enough for 3-4 people, and I hardly made a dent in it, much as I loved it. Chix/veg soup beforehand (they also had gazpacho), glass of wine, all for a prix-fixe of $16! Crazy....
Service was gracious and very warm.
Loved the rest of their menu, and will certainly return again soon for lunch or after work for their 'small plates', which from looking at other tables, were far from small.... The server told me at night, they remove the front bar-area tables, and it gets a little lively.
So happy to have happened upon this little gem quite by accident. E. 58th, 2-3 Aves.
