Acappella Northern Italian Cuisine
Perfect ItalianTruly a great Italian experience. We felt like like longtime customers on our first visit. Pasta was perfect, as was the lamb. Worth the trip to the financial district for a great dinner.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a special nightThey treat you like royalty at Acappella. The second you sit down, you immediately have a drink list, water, bread, an appetizer, and a great chunk of parmesan cheese. Sometimes 5 different people will be delivering all of those items to you. You feel like the most important person in the room. The ambiance is fantastic. The food is always wonderful. My husband's favorite dish is the open flame pork. It is romantic, elegant, and worth every penny. We usually finish our night with some grappa or lemoncello. The wine list is extensive, and there is something for every budget. We love this restaurant and go there once a year (since we are from Boston).5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spotAlways great food and services at Acappella. Dinning room is nice with high ceilings and brick walls adorned with tapestry's Wine list is strong on Italian vintages.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat old school Italian mealI live about 1/2 a block from Acappella, and can't believe last night was my first time here. It has an old school upscale Italian dining feel. The service is fantastic, I especially loved the guy who explains the specials. Immediately after taking our drink order, we were served fresh brushchetta, parmesan, fried zucchini, and a cured meat. We ended up ordering mostly specials, starting with a portabella mushroom, app, then had the squid ink pasta, followed by the veal scallopine. After our delicious meal, we were served complimentary grappa, which was a little strong for me but a nice finishing touch. I thought it was very reasonably priced for what we got. The food was all fresh and well prepared. I will be back.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe RestaurantThe staff made my party feel like family from the time we entered the restaurant until we parted. The food was very rich and flavorful. This location is great for both special occasions and business luncheons. The location is very convenient and accessible by all forms oftransit.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Memorable Evening....We try to dine at Acappella whenever we are in NYC.

Excellent surprise drink at the end! Excellent all around.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI've eaten in many of theI've eaten in many of the best restaurants in the country and I've never had better service, warm, vibrant, quick to anticiipate needs. There were 3 in our party. The appetizers and the entrees were excellent with one exception, my entree, which was a lobster ravioli with a too heavy cream sauce. I had them take it away and bring me something else, which they did promptly and the substitute a pasta with sea food dish in a light wine sauce was excellent. All in our party agreed, a wonderful find. Only one caveat: the acoustics in the place aren't great, not terrible, but I prefer a little more quiet.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat staff, awesome serviceGreat staff, awesome service - very friendly and the food was exceptional.
Not big portions - so make sure to order appetizer.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant was well worthThe restaurant was well worth the ride from our hotel on Central Park South. As soon as we were seated we were provided with a tasty array of complimentary munchies. We had decided to share a number of appetizers and they were automaically plated for each person...a very nice touch. Entrees among our group included meat,fish and pasta. All dishes were delicious and more than ample. Only a couple of us had room left for desser, but those that did, were not disappointed. The staff were extremely pleasant and attentive. They made you feel like you were dining with old friends. Our only regret was that we live too far to dine here more frequently!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic service. Staff wasFantastic service.
