    Recently, traveling I visited Puttanesca in NY. I am orginally from Austin though have actually been to NYC a ton of instances. My partner and I really like the diversity of dining establishments. Service at this particular restaurant surprisingly nice! The decor was exceptional. The entrees came out very quickly. The very good quality together with amount of food turned out very good. Regardless of that no true issues. Among the Two appetizers and Two entrees we ordered, We would say 3 as exceptional and 1 as extremely fine We definitely will be soon.
