A word from A Voce Madison
The word is out: Marlon Abela, the restaurateur behind London's Michelin one-star with two-stars rising Greenhouse, has opened a new modern Italian restaurant A Voce ("word of mouth") on the edge of chic Madison Square Park. The emphasis is on grown-up, deeply delicious Italian cookery set against a back drop of Italian style and organic East Coast elements.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "First time RW attempt. Had skate, fluke, and ricotta mousse. Overall, tastes were flat and too mild. Especially, fluke was too oily. Cannot understand why Michelin guide gave a star to this restaurant. Service was relatively slow. No tablecloth. Tables and chairs are too casual and outdated than expected."

  • "Simply, very good food, well executed, though the dessert (for restaurant week: a riccotta dish) didn't live up to the appitizer and entree round. Which, for many places is the high point. (This is more good than bad. A dessert shouldn't outshine the main course.) Still, my wife and I want to go back to sample what read like great menu. [We sat outside for lunch, which as a bit noisy, what with the trucks and busses, but a georgous July day.)"

  • "Went during restaurant week. Two of the three of us had the RW menu, which was truly just a subset of the regular menu. All had good size portions. I highly recommend the lemon ricotta ravioli: beautiful colors and flavors. Excellent service. They provide a little treat for dessert, a homemade chocolate marshmallow. Yum."

  • "After reading many great reviews I decided to bring my boyfriend here for what was suppose to be a romantic birthday dinner. From the start when we walked up to the restaurant there was scaffolding covering the outdoor seating. The weather was so perfect would have been nice to eat outside. In addition, it's not across from the park as noted but a quarter off Madison Avenue. The ambiance was pretty casual and not upscale as I expected. In addition, the wait staff took a while to ask us what we wanted to order for dinner. We ordered the fired ravioli and prosciutto which was good not great, lamb main course was okay, however, the donuts with caramel sauce were excellent. The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating."

  • "Haven't been to A VOCE for more than 2 years..after my last two visits offered food "barely passable". When I heard that a new chef had recently taken over the kitchen and was getting great reviews, I decided to give it another try. WOW! Everything my husband and I ordered was awesome! The creamy-dreamy Uovo, the yummy dried-cherry and pecan studded salad, the simple "Jersey tomato" pasta, the delightful oven roasted fluke, the dessert (mammamia!)....what an array and ALL absolutely delicious! You go Ben!"

  • "We had a good lunch with very attentive service. The noise level was a little high for my taste,but it was not unbearable.I would definitely return,but would prefer to sit outside to dine."

  • "A Voce is a destination for when you want a quiet, but fun scene and an incredibly tasty meal. They're very accomodating and the Maitre D' was especially attentive. The waiter was very friendly when he was at the table, but since we were sitting near the kitchen, he seemed very unhappy when he wasn't 'on duty.'"

  • "The food was great and the service was even better. The waiter was knowledgeable and all recommendations were excellent. The whole staff was courteous and made us feel welcomed. It was overall a great dining experience, and we'll go again the next time we visit NYC."

  • "great ingrediants used in food. great presentation of food. attentive service. portions on entree were a little small for price. (I had branzino) It was enough for me but for someone with larger appetite-they may leave hungry."

  • "I went on a Thursday night and the place was pretty empty. It might have been due to the weather, as there was some heavy rain that night. The restaurant was pretty and the service was good. The food was delicious but I was surprised at how small the entrée servings were. I ordered the Agnolotti (ricotta and lemon stuffed pasta) and there were maybe 10 little half-moon shaped pastas on my plate. Fortunately, my friend and I had shared a salad and the burratina appetizer (both very good), otherwise I would have definitely left feeling hungry. Overall, it was a very nice meal."

  • "I am a server in a fine dining restaurant and I find it hard to find a place I genuinely like to eat at. I got the same service I would have given to a table and was very satisfied. The food was good, portions a little small. Wasn't too fond of the chocolate and pistachio dessert. The wine program was great. The sommeliers were very helpful and able to recommend exactly which wine I should pair with my meal. If it wasn't as expensive as it is I would definitely go to this restaurant once a week. Overall it was one of my best dining experiences."

  • "A friend and I went very late on Saturday evening,. The kitchen was closing and he was running late, so I ordered appetizers and entrees for both of us. That staff and kitchen could not be more accommodating, including holding the pastry chef to provide an excellent desert. The wine was exceptional, the crudo superb and the gnoccetti was marvelous. We've been there before this visit and I'm sure we'll be back."

  • "Service was excellent and food is very good. Service seemed a little rushed for a restaurant that was maybe 1/2 full. The wine list is long and very pricey. A retail $25 that goes for $87 on their list seemed a bit extreme. Overall a very nice restaurant just be sure to there is plenty of room on your credit card limit."

  • "Lasting impressions: the professional yet warm welcome from the charming hostess... an intimate curved booth perfect to see the lovely room while enjoying a private conversation... the signature cocktail was a home run: an intriguing twist on an old favorite ... delicious, creative, beautifully balanced food: perfectly seasoned starter, exquisite pasta, heavenly poultry and fish... Expert advice on wine pairings steered us to a mind-blowing Brunello... Chef Ben Lee came out to say hello -- we were impressed with his quiet passion for perfection in the dining room. Altogether, a wonderful, memorable, meal. We shall return! "

  • "The kitchen staff has changed and the food is mostly better. At least the pasta is better. The lamb we had was just OK. The service needs work. The staff is friendly but seemed distracted. Will go back again. "

  • "We had dinner at A Voce Madison to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Although this is a highly rated restaurant, this was our first visit. It was as close to perfect as is possible. Starters (fois gras and agnolotti, were delicious and beautifully prepared. The shared steak is the find of New York. Better than any of the steakhouses we have been to, including Peter Luger and Morton's. Bombolini for dessert is a great choice as a shared finale, AND the coffee is superb."

  • "I eat here 8-9 times a year. The cooking is exceptional. There are always adventuresome items on the menu, I always try to have one, and I am never disappointed. Wonderful spot for a business lunch or dinner. The tables are well spaced and the noise level conducive to conversation. The wine lists looks great. I am at the restaurant mostly for lunch and seldom drink then, but the wine list is innovative and well priced. Just a great spot. The Captain does a wonderful job welcoming people."
