I know there have been several recent threads about this place, with mixed results. I just want to add my voice--went there for the first time last night with my husband and another couple, and we all liked it very much. The cacio e pepe was wonderful (if you like cheese and pepper, and why would you order it if you didn't....), the nettle gnocchi were delicious, and the bucatini with sardines was excellent. Special appetizers of a stuffed zucchini blossom and an arugula salad with lobster were very good. Main courses were good, but not as good as the pastas. The service was fine and we would all definitely go back for appetizers and pasta.
