First, second — even third date folks: “If you’re worried about how you look in a restaurant, this is the place to go” — Sarah & Alex on Upland’s spectacular lighting.
Other comments of note on this Californian/Italian restaurant in Flatiron included: “one of the biggest wine lists I’ve ever seen”, “great rosè on draft” and “one of the best pastas I’ve ever had in my life” (talking about that bucatini cacio e pepe).
Listen to Alex & Sarah’s full review below. And no, they did not buy the $1800 bottle of wine.

AWESOME atmosphere. We would come here for even just a drink. The lighting, the decor, and the people made this place worth coming to.
Make a reservation and take a good look at the drink menu.
Probably not for dinner, maybe for a drink at the bar.

The pasta (bucatini cacio e pepe) was quite possibly the best I’ve ever had….

Awesome vibe! This place was buzzing. I loved the atmosphere and the people we were surrounded by. Definitely an artsy yet sophisticated crowd.
Get the rosè on draft! So good!
I would probably return with a group of friends.
