    The "tavulata di San Giuseppe" was great fun. The food was wonderful. The chef did marvels with "la cucina povera", and the company, as always, was great. Yes, the evening was really long, especially for a week night. We didn't have to worry about getting up to go to work, but we felt sorry for those who did. Getting all those varied dishes out to so many people could not have been easy, though. Many thanks to Giusto and his staff for all their effort--and, of course, to Vinnie and also Allison.

    It was great, but I wish they would had started serving the food at 7:30 pm when it began rather than 8:20pm. It makes it hard on people like me who live out of Manhattan to stay the whole time and be able to have all the food without getting home long after midnight.

      I agree. Great food and company. The timing needs to improve. Many people left before the final 2 courses.
